After a two day project, Lori finished decorating the Christmas tree. 10 foot ceilings allow you to get a pretty big tree, the limiting factor appears to be the width of the front door. Our tree fits in the bay window very nicely, like it was made for it. We cut our tree at a lot in Loleta, for only $19, what a deal for a 9 foot tree. I can’t give the whole tree away just yet since it would spoil it for those family members who are coming to see us for Christmas. But I decided to show you my favorite part, bubble lights! These were always my favorite memory of Christmas at Grandma Knowles’ house. It was always a lot of work to get them started, but once they were bubbling, they were fascinating to a little kid. They seemed to disappear from the market for a long time but last year we saw them again so we bought a couple sets. Reading the warning labels I’m surprised they can still sell them. What makes them work is methylene chloride, which I am really familiar with because I used gallons of it stripping paint in our old house. Aside from stripping paint, it will burn your skin nicely and disolve most plastics. It’s also a carcinogenic. So make sure you don’t break those bubble lights folks.
