Okay dont laugh this is the first time we have done a tree. We have friends coming with two great kids for Sunday Lunch and we did not want any awkward questions re our lack of christmas decs so we set this up yesterday. When the room is dark and the fire is roaring I thought it looked good so we are leaving it up after they have gone,if you click on the pic it looks bigger and better

Babe, did the cats leave your tree alone?

Jabbur, how did yours turn out?

Bolas, your tree looks great! Tinsel? Check. Tree topper? Check. Decoration? Check. The fire burning in the fireplace is obviously going above and beyond. You get a gold star for this one!

No tree here. We crossed Christmas off our list of things we MUST do in 2003. No gifts, no decorations, no tree. I used to make myself crazy getting ready for Christmas and then putting everything away in January. We still use the Spode XMas dishes (although, I'm thinking of getting rid of those), eat, watch movies, and snow shoe on Christmas Day while the turkey cooks. No stress! No mess (other than the kitchen).

We bought a tree with fibre optic lighting. We don't put any decorations on it. The furry monster has no dangly things to tempt him.

yes my boys have left it alone. the gravel made the container just to heavy for them to push. i have part of my teddy bear collection around the tree . and they do push them around. but good old charlie opened the door to my craft closet. he took out several ornaments . he took them into the sunroom. broke one, he did all this during the night. he always finds something to get into. but i love him to pieces.

Babe, I think that may be part of Charlie's job description.
