Our Tree Dilemma

We changed the layout of our living room this year so a new Christmas tree location needed to be found.  The spot we picked had no nearby outlet.  I think at this point a lot of people would either pick a new location or start running an extension cord across the room.  This is why I'm lucky my husband is so handy.
His solution was pretty simple really.  Put in a new electrical oulet behind the tree.  This seemed like it would be a lot of work to me, but he had it finished in less than an hour.  What a man!
There are not really any updates to our decorations from last year, but I still love them anyway.  I'm hoping to make stockings for the fireplace sometime in the next week.  If I find the time and motivation I will post photos once they are finished.

  7. I'm a total slacker too... no tree yet. :) But, seriously handy husband! Me and mine would have figured a way to string extension cords across the room because we have no idea how to even contemplate putting in a new outlet. Great job!
