Unfortunately, I had to work most of today, bud did get home about 2pm with another trailer load of decorations to put out.  I got started on things by 2:30 or so.  I started putting lights on the big maple tree, and with a very sore back, I was able to get most of the lights on the maple tree that afternoon, but it is a long task wraping the lights around the branches.  I put the lighted ornamet balls up forst, and then wrapped the trunk base followed by the upper trunk stems and then started on the major branches.  Overall, I mananged to get about 2,216 lights on the maple tree, and finished up the tree the next day.  The picture below was actually taken on Sunday night (12/5) and shows the whole tree as it was completed.
