Electrified and Tickled Aluminum!

I am just in shock and total bliss dear Readers! Imagine my surprise and delight when my Grandmother Charlene presented me with a late Christmas gift. HOLY COW! She hunted down and found for me a 6ft Pine Aluminum Christmas tree, with the color wheel AND as an added bonus there was a 4ft pine Aluminum tree also in the box!
To be honest I'm still kind of in shock. Here I am, been whining since 10 years old for a 6ft Aluminum tree and here I am now with TWO 6ft trees and TWO 4ft trees. I'm going have an Aluminum Forest!
I want to thank Grandma "Mimi" Charlene for this WONDERFUL gift! I know I just recently purchased a tree, but in this case its the thought that really does count. I'll put them up and treasure them. I can hardly wait until next year to have a gleaming Christmas!

These things look gorgeous with the colored light. I picked up my own (sans light) a few weeks before Christmas, but was out of town for the holidays and didn't even get a chance to set it up.

That's so awesome! You officially have a whole collection of aluminum trees now. The Casablanca is going to look like a sparkly wonderland next Christmas.

That's actually my Grandmothers front door! My great grand parents built the house in 1969!

AWESOME!!!
I have 2 with color wheels and all, and I really enjoy having them both up during the holidays. The only pain? Putting back all the branches in the little paper sleeves. Takes forever!

Mick, is this a joke? Come on. You have got to be messing with all of us:-)

I don't even need to tell you how lucky you are! Now you need to do some serious ornament hunting. It takes a lot of ornaments to fill just one tree so you have some work to do. Have you thought about where you are going to put them all?

Have a great weekend!
