    I may be sending you a care package next year. After we move next time, it is going to get 'inexplicably lost'.

    We put up 200' of lights to cover the front only. Would be nice to do the garage too, but oh well, good enough. For some reason those LED lights have a bluish cast to them which is why I liked the old icicle lights better.

    We changed to a white tree this year and I love it! We have put presents under the tree for the first time this year and so far James has resisted the temptation to rip them open!

    The smaller tree has my homemade decorations on it. They look fine from a distance :lol:

    We don't yet have a tree-topper, but I'm keeping my eye out! This was our first tree together in our new house!

    telephone, YAY! For first tree together! Yours looks so festive. I have a couple (okay more than a couple :oops: ) tree toppers. I have one in particular that would look fantastic with that tree. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA09A0770335&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC-_-pla-_-Holiday+Decor-_-9SIA09A0770335&gclid=CIfg-YOE08ICFRUcaQoda34AtA&gclsrc=aw.ds

    This is lovely too: http://www.jafgifts.com/Double-Points-Capiz-Star-Lighted-Tree-Topper-Tree-Topper_173900.html?gclid=CMfn2v2D08ICFQQHaQoduhEAUg

    We have not had a tree since my daughter and I moved into my father's house. There is really no room with all the clutter and my parents had not had one in their later years so my father would have hated suddenly having one thrust upon him again. I do have a landscaper friend do the front yard with fresh greens, red bows, and red and white Christmas lights. Since we have a white picket fence that looks pretty good, but the inside is nothing. I very much miss having my own house and a fairy tale tree, etc.

    I have a door with Christmas cards on it this year and tabletop tree I gave my parents from a craft fair many, many years ago. I have to say it has held up very well. I suspect it is at least 30 years old! I am sharing what I have, but it is no longer the stuff of which fairytales are made!

    I love this arrangement which was in one of your rooms, makemepretty. What is it? What is the wreath made from and what is it decorating? (What is the greenery draped over?)

    Thank you! I love both of them. I bought my decorations at costco & walmart (haha!) but neither of them had any tree toppers I liked. My mother has an old angel that I will probably ask for, as she has not put up a tree in years. I really wanted a lighted one though, maybe boxing day will have something delightfully inexpensive...

    I know she's in Canada, but not where in Canada. ;)) Thank you for the compliment on the tree table.

    Deb, I love your table top tree! I love how full it looks. I think I'll keep my eye out for one next year since we don't have room for a larger tree in our current place.

    Wow, everyone's decorations look like a magazine! Totally awesome!

    Tweeter8177, I LOVE your holiday village! I've been dying to buy some of those.

    Love the snowman tree. Love the green reindeer.

    Makemepretty, your place looks like something out of a fantasy tale, like Alice in Wonderland at Christmas or something!

    Butterfly...wow, just wow!

    Mine aren't nearly so amazing, but here's some close-ups anyway. I'm not very good at decorating Christmas trees, but I did buy some nice decorations this year.

    Happy Holidays everyone! :wavey:

    The wreath is just an ornament wreath from Target and the garland is just a cheap one from long ago. It even has some gold in it but all together it looks pretty.

    Haha yes. Unfortunately (?) we are not going to have a white christmas this year. Which is unsual, because it snows 8 months of the year most times!

    So we are a little late this year with the tree but as soon as it went up lol Tommy and Bobby just had to get into the act and now Francesca is under it haha. Decorations not yet on the tree. Only lights so far but I think it looks pretty just as it is right now.

    Happy and healthy holidays everyone!

    Missy it does look beautiful with just the lights. Your cats are like mine, the minute the tree goes up they love to lounge under it. Kitties make the best presents.

    I got new stockings this year. They don't look that great hanging on the pass through, but maybe in the next couple years we'll get a real fireplace and hang them there!

    I loved seeing everyones decorations(some great ideas to steal for next year!). I already de-Christmased but left the lone tree in the bedroom. My husband suggested leaving it up and decorating for each holiday, might do that. Hope everyone has a Happy New Year.

    Makemepretty, why have you taken everything down already? It was so nice! Didn't you want to do the 12 days of Christmas? I've thought of decorating for each holiday too, but I can't think of how to do it. Any ideas?
