The Tree

Christmas Tree 2005Oh, gee, did I promise to post this two days ago???? I should know better than to give myself a time line during the holidays. So, a bit late, here is my tree, complete with some wrapped presents!! Every year I get the tree home and it is SO MUCH BIGGER than it looked on the wide open tree lot. So this year, I was very careful - and ended up with a tree much smaller than I intended. One of these years I'll get it right.

I do have knitting content to post, but I'll have to save that for "later". I won't promise when later, but I'll try to make it soon.

What a lovely tree! And the presents underneath are beautiful too. I always forget to get more than one wrapping paper, so we end up with a very boring under-tree area.

Your tree looks so pretty, Karen! I know you said it's smaller than you intended, but I think it looks wonderful. And I know I've said it before, but you have such a beautiful home! I love all the festive decorations and miniatures you have all around the room. You're so on the ball, too, with all your wrapped presents already waiting under the tree. I actually wrapped a few of the kids' gifts and put them out....except, Stinky, having seen Bossy open his birthday presents recently, decided to try and open all of them herself while I was washing the dishes. :-P So it looks like Santa will be delivering ALL of the family's presents on Christmas Eve after bedtime! :-)

What a cute tree! I like the shape of it - and I think the size is perfect ;)

I have that problem a lot too. DF has resorted to making me promise that when we do finally get around to getting a tree (like when we have a house) it can't be taller than me.

Darn, why can't I be amazon-tall like Stephanie Japel?

The tree looks great - as for that "size" problem, perhaps we should figure out how to measure Christmas tree gauge? I'll work on that for next year........
Where's the little sockie ornament? And the little weightwatcher's bear with the scarf?

Your tree looks beautiful to me. I don't know how much cred I have after the tree in my house this year, but I still think yours is nice. Ours is definitely overflowing with presents and Drake's aren't even under there yet! Just mine and Davin's to each other, he he. Now that I've resigned myself to not finishing most of my Christmas knitting (and also that I have Friday afternoon off), I'm counting down! 4 sleeps?!!! Wow, ummm, now I know why I usually start counting those the month before.
