The Trees Are Up!

The Living Room Tree - this picture does not do it justice!

The Heirloom Tree in Colby's room.

This weekend Jeremy had to work and Colby and I found ourselves with lots of time on our hands Saturday and Sunday. We decided to surprise Daddy and put the Christmas trees up. We put the large one up in the living room on Saturday night. This is the first year I have done a "themed" tree. Everything on the tree is crystal, red, silver, and gold (with white lights) and it is the most BEAUTIFUL tree I have ever put up! I am so pleased with the way it has turned out and I spend a lot of time now sitting and staring at the tree. We camped out under the tree lights last night just for fun!

On Sunday we put the "heirloom" tree up in Colby's room. It is decorated with colored lights and has all the ornaments from my childhood (Jeremy didn't have any from his) and all the ornaments we have collected as a family over the years. You will find everything form a 1980 Baby's First Christmas ball to several John Deer Tractors covering the branches. Colby is so excited to have a "big" tree in his room also! I just hope it stays up instead of becoming a victim to a ball whizzing across the room or a monster truck racing across the floor!

I love the holidays and anyone who knows me knows that I can really take it over the top with my decorations. At one point I had six trees up in my house......I don't have the room for them all now, but I am trying to incorporate as many of my decorations as I can without being tacky!

I found your blog through someone else and I'm so glad I did. I didn't know you had one. Your trees look very pretty. Colby is a very handsome little boy. Glad you guys are doing good!
