Show us your life - Christmas Trees

Over at Kelly's Korner, is Show us your Life - Christmas trees. I put up my trees this past Sunday, and am so excited to show them off. This is my main Christmas Tree in the living room. It is a real Douglas Fir Tree. We have had a real tree every year since we've been married. This one is the biggest we've ever gotten. My ornaments are just a good variety. I don't have a "theme" or a color scheme. I have several that have special meaning. Like this one from Hamburg. My Jennifer gave this to me last year for Christmas when she was living there. It's really special now that I have gone to Hamburg. This ornament I got at Buckingham Palace when I was in London earlier this year. I got each one of these ornaments for my fur babies for their first Christmas. This tree is made from kudzu, and my friend Jessica's Mom made it. I blogged about it last year when I got it. I have it sitting on a small table in my entry way.

The last tree is my small ceramic tree that I painted several years ago. I have it sitting on top of my china cabinet. When I was little, we had a tree just like this, so when I saw it at the pottery store to paint, I had to get it to continue the tradition.
Thanks for taking a look, and I will post more of my Christmas decorations when the Nester does her Christmas tour of Homes. Until then, Merry Christmas!

I love your kudzu tree. I would like to get one! Granny has one of those ceramic trees and would like to have one of those. You should add to your blog about your homemade tree skirt and stockings. Thanks for sharing your christmas trees with everyone! Also, thanks for helping decorate my christmas tree!
