This Christmas

My tree for this year. I hauled out the Christmas decorations last weekend, including my little three-foot Christmas tree. Yes, I would like one at least twice that size, but honestly have no room for anything bigger in my current living room. Every year I find myself torn as to which ornaments will be displayed and which will remain boxed another year.

Truth be told, I have enough for at least two six-foot trees. Among the ornaments are woven small white lights (I don't care for the multi-color or blinking ones) and a pearl garland. Most of the ornaments were made by either myself, my sister, or friends. The angel sitting next to the tree is a music box given me by a friend's mother.

And, of course, my very first ornament ever, the red flocked Santa from my maternal grandmother, holds pride of place front and center of the tree. It wouldn't be Christmas without him!

That's a very pretty tree. I'm going to attempt to take a photo of our tree some time this week.

That's a great tree. Very classy.

We use a "redneck special" two-dimensional tree because we always spend the holiday with my family or my dh's and they always have a real tree.

Alice - A two dimensional tree?? Is that like the cardboard one Mr monk had on this year's Christmas special? lol
