Do you have yours up yet?

Do you leave gifts under it as you get them wrapped or wait until Christmas to bring them out?

Do you like white lights or colored lights on it?

Do you put a star, an angel or something different on the top?

Do you have a train or no train underneath it?

Let's see a picture!

Do you prefer a real or a fake tree? up until my popi died we used a real tree, but then we all inherited the fake tree from dad's childhood, and we've used that since.

Do you have yours up yet? we put ours up sunday before my induction.

Do you leave gifts under it as you get them wrapped or wait until Christmas to bring them out? we wrap ours as we get them and put them under.

Do you like white lights or colored lights on it? colored. white lights are reserved for the "theme" trees.

Do you put a star, an angel or something different on the top? we put angels on. my nana left us dozens to choose from.

Do you have a train or no train underneath it? we put the train underneath it, but the village that goes with the tree goes on the sidetable. we don't make sense

Let's see a picture!

Do you prefer a real or a fake tree? Grew up with fake, so I now insist on real.

Do you have yours up yet? Cut it down and put it up on Sunday

Do you leave gifts under it as you get them wrapped or wait until Christmas to bring them out? Used to leave them out but with the nosy toddler, that may not be possible. Plus I want her to have a good "tree face" when she sees it Christmas morning.

Do you like white lights or colored lights on it? White only. Ever. The "kids tree" (small tree in nursery) can have colored lights if they want one day.

Do you put a star, an angel or something different on the top? Gold Star

Do you have a train or no train underneath it? Not in years past, but this year we will set up the insanely big brio train that SC is getting from her grandparents set under it with a little electric engine. And then we may get a traditional train in the future.

Let's see a picture!
I haven't figured out decorations since I'm not putting up my nice collection of glass ornaments. I'll post when I figure out what to do.

Do you prefer a real or a fake tree? We have a 9 ft fake one

Do you have yours up yet? Yep, put it up on Wednesday before Thanksgiving, hubby fluffed it, and then we got it decorated on Friday

Do you leave gifts under it as you get them wrapped or wait until Christmas to bring them out? I try to leave out the gifts for people other than the kids, but if they start touching them too much, then I put them away until we need them.

Do you like white lights or colored lights on it? I used to change it up, but after spending $135 just to get the tree lit this year, I think I will just stick with the colored ones!

Do you put a star, an angel or something different on the top? star

Do you have a train or no train underneath it? The train obsessed boys broke too many things from the nice train, so a few years ago we bought the Fisher Price Geo Trax train. Now they can play with it as much as they want!

Let's see a picture!
need to take one still

Real tree. No presents until Santa comes. To much temptation for the little ones.
