I think we paid about $50 for that one. It's 4' tall, if I remember correctly.

I bought a gingerbread village I will play with this weekend. First I have to find a flat spot...

Shrek got out his Charlie Brown Christmas Tree, it looks like this:

I've made table centerpieces using fresh pineapple, lemons, pine branches and magnolia leaves per a Williamsburg theme. They're very pretty. I've also done similar things to create a mantle decoration.

One year I filled clear glass cylinder candle holders with fresh cranberries and handfuls of gold beads, then stuck gold metallic taper candles into them. Placed them, in single file, on long mirrors on the dining table and interspersed them with small bits of pine. Very nice, too.

Not sure what I'm going to do this year as this is a new house for me, but Glenn has told me to do anything I want. Gotta love this man!

I just got one of those Sunday. I'll put up my Charlie Brown figures around it this year and give Santa Clause is Coming to Town a year off.

Latte' thinks she can climb it... I've had to chase her away from it several times. I used to put up a bigger tree, but I got tired of resurrecting it every day. Cats like trees!
