I think this is a first for me... Getting the tree up before December! (or for that matter- even having any desire to get it up before the week before Christmas - takes a lot of arm twisting to get my family to assist bringing up the stuff since I do all the assembling and decorating!).
Behold, the Go family Christmas tree!*
*disclaimer: i would never choose coloured lights. that would be my parent's shopping at work.
