We've done this in previous years and it's SO fun to see everyone's different styles!! So share a picture of your Christmas tree if you have it up already-- if you don't, make sure you post it when you do!!

I'll start-- we have 2 trees up this year. One is my Steelers tree (all black and gold with a bunch of NFL Steelers ornaments) and the other is our traditional tree. I love putting them in front of bay windows so you can see them from the road!





Who's next??

I've posted in the help area to see why this post is all out of whack and looks strange. Hopefully that part of it will be fixed soon!

My tree is up but un-decorated. We just bought it on Black Friday... but I was feeling like a hot bag of crap yesterday, so I didn't pull out the decorations or anything.

I've got a few errands to run today, so hopefully I'll get it done once I get back.

Will definitely post pics as soon as it's done!

Has anyone gotten theirs up yet??

I can't wait to see more of your trees- I love seeing others' ideas!!!

And no one noticed the ghost in our dining room window? I didn't notice it until a few days after the tree was up.... I've put it away now- I totally forgot about it!

I was too busy looking at the tree that I didn't even notice the ghost! You should have kept it up to see if anyone else noticed!

We are getting our tree this weekend, so I hope to have pics up then! It's so nice to get a REAL, U-Cut tree after sooo many years of the fake ones my parents have!

And even though this is our second year living together, I think I already have too many ornaments for one tree.. heheh oops!

Mine is up! I am just too lazy to take a pic, download it, then post it to FB and then post it here. Every time I see this post though it reminds me I should go in there and do it. I will have my pic here in the next few days.

Jackie I love that you have 2 trees. They are both beautiful! DH will not let me have 2. Ours is so big that he has kind of put his foot down on having a second, all though I would love to have one. Lucky you!

Aww, thanks, Elle! This is the first year with 2 actually up. I had 2 last year but ended up only doing the Steelers tree. I missed my traditional one though and I wanted them both on the same floor so I could enjoy them all the time!

We got ours up on Sunday! Our tree has red and gold decorations. Wasn't what I originally wanted, but we got a gift and it was NOEL and it was red and gold.. so I wanted to match everything. Looks really pretty though




This is one of the ornaments my mother-in-law made for the dogs.. . they all have one...


OH and I forgot to add.. DH put presents for ME under it. I had no idea!

Sneaky man. LOL

Just got it and put it up today! However, I apparently am allergic to sap because I got a weird rash on my arm/hand when decorating ... luckily it's all gone now but that really sucked!

Here are some pics of our tree. We are using a fake tree this year cause DH's mom gave it to us, but I prefer a real one. I just bought the ornaments and love them! The Close up ornament was made and given to us by our wedding photographer, the image is embedded in the metal so it's practically everlasting.
