Christmas Tree 2014

Have we done this in past years; post photos of our Christmas Trees?

It took DH and me about 5 minutes to put up and plug in this tree. We haven't decorated it yet. I have many very nice ornaments.

I can't remember if there's a thread for Christmas trees or not. Whatever the case...we have one now.

Our tree won't go up until Christmas week, most likely Christmas Eve day, which is normal for me/us. I like to keep the tree up until the first week in January so we can enjoy it. Things are just too crazy here to put it up any earlier.

Looks nice, Beth and, yep, I bet I know where some of your ornaments came from. Pretty nice, too, that you arranged for your upholstery to match the holiday.

I remember last year's tree thread. Haven't seen one this season.

I remember last year's, too. Can't find it now.

We were talking about decorating last night. I think we'll start this weekend.

We're finished decorating for Christmas. When I say, "We're finished decorating..." I really mean SO is finished. I provide technical support in repairing broken items and setting timers for all the lights.

I'll snap a pic and post it later.

Pretty tree, Beth. Mine will be in front of a big window too...today I've been moving around things making a nice spot for it, and washing the window. My biggest challenge so far has been finding a new place for all the plants that live in front of that window.

I'll be getting my tree on Saturday. Have to wait for my son-in-law's day off, he has a truck and will deliver it for me once I pick it out, and help me set it up in the stand.

Mine is fake too. That is why it went up so quickly.

I always had a cut tree, until the last DH died. Then I quickly converted.

I just can't bring myself to put up my huge beautiful tree this year so it will stay in the box with the hundreds of ornaments. However, I just ordered a little 3 ft. table top tree with pretty fiber optic lights that we can put here in our little computer/tv room to enjoy. We're always in this room anyway, so this is the place to have it. I'll post a picture later as it's suppose to arrive Dec. 11th with free shipping.

I just wanted to add that the huge beautiful tree that will stay in the box, pulls as much electricity as nine 100 W light bulbs!
Dang, it actually heated up the living room.

This is what it looked like..
