Decorating with the boys...

On Wednesday, I went over and helped Steve and Loren with their tree.  It was quite the experience.  

Firstly, I didn't know people, especially guys felt so strongly about the color of their Christmas lights!  Steve and Loren differ on what lights they wanted to use (Loren wanted white, and Steve wanted colored).  I somehow was drawn into this argument, and I like white lights, I think they are so classy.  Steve took that to mean colored lights are tacky (and Loren may or may not have said that) he went on ALL night about how he didn't like the white lights, because they are among other things: boring, sterile, and too bright...
The lights discussion prompted an ornaments question.  This time the sides were reversed, I like ornaments to match and go with a theme, Steve likes that too.  Loren likes his ornaments to look "homey" like you could have made them yourself, which I do have to say have their character, but for my main tree, things need to match!
It was really fun, they kept apologizing that it wasn't that much fun but I had a great time, and really a "party" would have been way too much work...

I put a poll on the side about light colors...  Who do you side with? White or Colored?

I'm all about colored. White lights, but I like things to match too. If only they had an off white...or eggshell! JK! Ha ha!
