We don't do Christmas trees at our house anymore, but if I did, it would totally be something like this:

That's so cool Steve! What a clever idea!

Ours isn't up yet and my back is acting up. It looks the same every year though.

Since I'm not as anti-christmas and my mom coming, I may put up a tree. I'm thinking about buying a small one to place on the table at the end of the sofa. Whatever I do has to happen fairly soon since mom is coming next week!

No Christmas tree here either. We can't have live trees in the condo so Mrs D decided 4 years ago, no more trees till we move back to Germany.

Mine is up and the lights are lit but I'm still working on getting the ornaments on. I'll finish it tomorrow afternoon. I started with a cough today and I'm pretty tired.

Steve, in its own way that is very beautiful. I would love to see sunlight shining on it.

We'll definitely have a tree, just haven't decided if it'll be the large one or a tabletop one.

Last Christmas we had a small tabletop one because, two weeks or so earlier, I'd had my right knee replaced and I was recovering.

I love having a tree and I have a feeling we'll put the larger one up.

Oh yes. I remember that. They two of you were going to become all new people. New parts. So how are the new parts working?
