Here's this year's tree.

On the run towards 'the' tree

She picked this monster


And decorated, minus a few feet off the bottom to make the perfect 'fat' tree (after being cut it's 9 1/2 ft) and the topper that I've yet to find (oops), plus DD's crazy ribbon arranging....

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Beautiful trees everyone! They look like something off a post-card. :)

I'll have to take a photo of my tree. It isn't the prettiest decoration wise, but the ornaments we have on it all have some sort of sentimental value. Recently, I started putting just regular ornaments on it to make it look a bit more organized instead of the pure randomness it usually is. ;)

guys, I have a confession to make.

I don't have a tree this year.
I just didn't bother buying, putting up, lighting and decking it. yes, my kids help with it, but what really happens is that i have to harangue them to leave their rooms and their online chats or video games or whatever, to help dec the tree. no one sits out in the living room just to admire it. husband complains that it displaces his easy chair. And I end up having to harangue them to help me take it down and put it away. Yes, I love looking at it, smelling it and I don't really mind the work. but this year, I just don't have the energy nor the desire. this is a very, very quiet Christmas.

So, thanks for sharing your trees. I can enjoy them vicariously.

We displaced our old pup's "easy chair", but it gives him a better vantage point to guard the tree, warm his bones by the fire and wait for Santa (he loves Christmas and opens his own presents).


There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

What I really want for Christmas is an all white tree. I always get voted down. I don't understand it...they are so beautiful!!

I don't know, Tiny, I think Christmas would be a lot more relaxing if you didn't feel obligate to put up a tree. I never did until after I had kids.

I went out and got myself a 6.5' tree this year, lugged it in, and decorated it myself. My family, like yours Tiny, doesn't do decorations without complaining so I do it myself. (Well, ok, my wobbler dog Connor "helps" but all he manages to do is nearly knock the tree on top of both of us...and steal decorations! LOL) I think its fun, even if its just me singing along to the Christmas music and fixing the tree up :) I also put up some neon lights in my bedroom and pink/blue lights outside. No one can complain...I bought and put them up without their help thank you very much!

A friend, my sister, and I also put up our tree in our youth group is HILARIOUS. The stand is broken/missing so we stole the youth pator's barstool, turned it upsidedown and built the tree in the stool, then we couldn't find a tree topper so we "made" an angel out of a pillow sheet, a naked babydoll who has seen better days, a yellow wig that we found (why it was there I do not know) a broken airplane, and a hair tie. The youth pastor says it looks possessed. We think she's beautiful. I'll post some pics tomorrow!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
