I'm working on decorating the house this weekend with help from DD and DS (and "help" from NIKcat ). More pics to come when the day is over, but for now - the tree:


And the stove top snowman guarding our pumpkin bread reward (my Mom's recipe).


Your turn! Post 'em if you've got 'em!

Love it NIK!

I'm craving pumpkin bread now.

Only have two trees up so far.

This one is my Angel Tree. It's a small 2 foot tree on our fireplace that hold heirloom angels from my fraternal grandmother and my maternal great-grandmother. There's also angels I made, and that my daughter has started to collect. (Oddly, she started collecting angels before my grandmother's passed away. She was honored to inherit their ornaments)

This is our Memories Tree. Ornaments from early in our marriage, gifts from friends, oodles of things my children have made over the years. There's also more heirlooms from my grandmothers.

When QS gets home, we're going to pick out a live tree which will go in the living room. That one is the "Pretty Tree" where everything is all matchy-matchy and organized.

Um, Aubrie? How many trees do you put up each year?

Since I have room for them? Three. (One in the living room, 1 in the family room, 1 on the fireplace.) Plus a tiny one in each child's room. Which makes 5.

I do somehow have a spare artificial tree too. If I get bored and have enough leftover ornaments, I might stick that one down in the library/school room.

Yeah. I kinda like Christmas.

Love seeing these. Gorgeous trees, ladies! I was wondering about the number of trees in Aubrie's house, too.

I love the decorations but wasn't able to do any at all last year. The year before, I was ecstatic to finally be able to decorate to my heart's content and as early as I wanted since I was alone. Xpos never wanted any at all unless we were having everyone at our house. Then he would want a tree up for about 3 days that included Christmas day. Traveling around Christmas again this year, so will have to see what I can handle around that.


Finding what life could have been....... Why didn't I see it?

Okay, I read this as Holiday Decoration Thread, as in what you sew with. I was totally expecting to see some glittery, sparkly thread of some kind that you sew things with or something.

lynn - you already have presents under your tree?

I have quite a bit of shopping done, but the wrapping doesn't happen until a day or two before Christmas at my house.

NIK, yep, almost all my gifts are wrapped and under the tree now. Because I have last minute prep for my art show and a party for which I must bake desserts on the weekend before Christmas, the two-day mother and daughter cookie making blitz on the weekend of Dec. 14 and 15, and guests all this coming weekend, I had not much choice! It was this past weekend or not at all. I'm useless at night during the week; I still work full-time and have a long commute, so by the time I get home, all I want to do is cook, eat and veg!

TR - you say slacker, I say savvy cat owner. NIKcat will tear the wrapping paper off packages if allowed. So I don't wrap them until I'm off work for the holidays and able to supervise her closely.

My daughter's cats (two Bengal tabbies) do the same thing. She also can't keep cut flowers or potted plants of any kind because they tip over and shred.

lynn, NIKcat ate the flowers I brought home from my mother's funeral. Can't have any plants or flowers in the house with this one.

Also? You cant' tell in the picture, but the Christmas tree is secured with fishing line that runs from the top of the tree to a hook in the ceiling. Otherwise NIKcat would knock it over every day. She climbs it constantly.
