    I loveeeeee Christmas and enjoy seeing people's Christmas trees. Here is a picture of my tree, I believe it was taken in '05 but it looks the same every year :lol: and will look the same this weekend when I put it up. Have you put your tree up yet and have a picture to share with us?

    That is so pretty. I love your Christmas tree. Mine will be decorated by my 6 year old DGD. (She and her mom live with me.) I'm sure it will be interesting. I'll take pictures when she is done. These are the pictures from last year.

    I'll post when I get mine up tomorrow. My children always decorated our tree and I can tell by pics over the years how old they were by how high the bulk of the ornaments were hung!! Joy to all.

    Here is mine. The lights are all blue, but it is difficult to see in a photograph.

    This year I am doing something that I have never done before. I have to arrange the presents so that I leave room for kitties to sleep. They LOVE it under there.

    Trying once more. Admin is helping me. Made absolutely sure to hit the send button each time. It just won't play right.

    I think she likes garland but then who doesn't. Can't wait to see her decorating style this year.

    Here is mine finally. I had to make it smaller for it to show up. Going for bigger lights next year so that they will be seen more easily.

    Nice tree and you already have presents under it. I've yet to wrap a present.

    I remember one year wanting an old fashion Christmas tree and made all the ornaments out of flour and baked...it was such a cute tree....I'll have to check and see if my mother still has some the ornaments. I spent hours shaping and painting them and now I don't know if they still exist. :roll:

    Very pretty everyone. I have a few hand made things that my mother did. Also, there is a little tin jockey and horse that is 103 years old. It was a toy given to my Aunt Ethel when she was in the hospital in 1906.

    Well.....it is under the tree, but it is not a box. My SS was very clever and wrapped my present in fabric. That means I get an extra piece. :lol:
