Quoting snglemama:" no theme... just.. family stuff. colorful lights.. and random ornaments. Every year... christmas eve ... [snip!] ... So.. our tree has everything from sponge bob, to scoobydoo, to princess' to karate! I love it. Tree day is my favorite day!"
I do the same thing with the ornaments :) Although I try to give them before Christmas so they can go on the tree. But DS is 4 and his ornaments are from things he has been into each year. His first Christmas is one with a pic of us, his second Christmas is a snow globe, and his third is a train, his fourth is a Grinch, and this year I will get him a Batman.
Here's mine! Just put it up yesterday :)
I was off all this week from work so I figured I'd put my trees out now while I'm not exhausted from working through the holidays. Very busy week coming up at work being Turkey day and all.
I changed things up a bit this year and put two trees out. I have my traditional Gingerbread tree (my fave) and a Santa tree.
This is last years
Now just waiting on DH to cable the TV correctly to finish the rest of the inside.

my family always did that too. When I got married.. my mom gave me a box with all my ornaments so I could start my own tree. I love all the memories it brings! the kids love getting their ornaments every year... and I love listening to all the "hey.. do you remember this one! you got it when you were 5.. No.. I was 4.. remmeber?"
This was last years(don't put our tree up till Dec 1)but we do it the same every year.
Last year was our first tree. We bought an artificial with the lights already on it. Ours was blue and silver, and will be until we get sick of it lol
I have a picture somewhere....may try to find it later
This is our tree, it's very small... but it's just temporary until we start our first "family" tradition this year with letting the kids pick out a real tree. We couldn't resist any longer and wanted to start decorating.
i love your tree!! but we have a fake tree :oops: its a white one and i do it different every year. i have a box filled with alot of different decorations. I always do rainbow lights though, i just think it looks better on the white tree....

Thanks! LOL, it's just a butt to keep clean with the kids bringing in dirt and such.
edited.... added one from the year before as well!
our apartment isnt huge and i feel like if we had a big tree id feel cramped. not sure where i would put it since we have so much furniture in our living room.so, we got cameron his own mini tree for his room last year
cameron has a big tree over at his nana and papas though (older pictures)
Quoting Jenna + 2 Beauties:" thats cool! you will get a great deal!! & its funny you say that, because my mom keep pushing for ... [snip!] ... for me to do christmas crafts and im like "NO, we can only do fall crafts right now until the day after thanksgiving". haha "
well, this time of year is a jumble of celebration in my house. In order for me to not feel overwhelmed, I have to separate them.
My son's bday is Halloween, My bday is Nov 4th, then TG, then My husband's bday on Dec 18th and then Xmas and then New years.
I need to breath sometime in there.
