The U.S. capitol Christmas tree is ready for Christmas.
     
House Speaker John Boehner was joined by Ryan Shuster, 17, to light the tree Tuesday night. Shuster is an Eagle Scout from Colorado Springs.
     
This year's tree is from the White River National Forest in Colorado.

It's decorated with 10,000 lights and thousands of ornaments made by people in our state.
