Solstice Tree

R. went to get one yesterday with A. He bought one from the 4-5' pile, but it's actually 6' tall. It's not a top-of-the-table tree this year.

Also, we need more strings of LED lights. I suspected as much, but it became brutally obvious after I put the strings on that this was Not Going to Work.

Further, we need another Really Big Package of AA batteries. I just went through almost all of a 48 pack from Costco sticking batteries into the LED "candle" lights.

In good news, the Santa hats, while showing real wear and tear, are still a lot of fun to put on. Maybe I'll stick the reindeer antlers and nose on the car this year. Should look foolishly Awesome -- it's a _red_ car. ;-)
