Oh Christmas Tree

December 8, 2011

I LOVE setting up our Christmas tree. The husband and I always get one right after Thanksgiving and spend the day sipping hot chocolate, listening to Christmas music, and decorating the tree. Although I end up doing most of the decorating....

Today I'm linking up with Honey We're Home to share my Christmas trees!

Here's our main Christmas tree in the living room. I believe in A LOT of lights....I think I used at least 9 or 10 strands on this tree.

Our topper this year is a large snowflake and an "R"

That's me in the second grade!

My friend Heather gifted me with ornaments a few years ago that were from my cats. This one of Pancake is especially sweet this year. He always loved our Christmas trees. We miss him every day.

There are not any presents under our tree yet! So I filled my in-law's old berry basket with a few little decorations.

We also have two mini trees this year. This one in the kitchen is going to display Christmas cards, each secured with a clothes pin....it's looking a little bare right now...come on people, get on it! I'm happy to report as of today all of our cards have been sent!

Here's a shot of our family room decorated for Christmas.

And of course we have a mini tree in here too! This one is technically Henry's tree....he's knocked it over at least 4 times already.

Merry Christmas from our house to yours! Make sure you link up and check out more Christmas trees!
