Today Kelly is hosting a Show us your life featuring Christmas Trees!! I love our trees and this year I put them up weekend before Thanksgiving since we were gone Thanksgiving week visiting my family in Illinois. We have 5 trees in our house! I go a little overboard with trees but I LOVE them and I think they add so much sparkle and Christmas spirit to our house.
I don't use real trees (which makes Graig sad because he spent his high school and college years working on a Christmas tree farm!) because the first year we lived in our house our live tree fell over right on top of Brock!! Graig was at work so Brock and I threw the tree out the front door and we haven't used a real tree since! BTW, it's REALLY hard to get a good picture of a Christmas tree so I took some with my flash, some without to try to get a good picture :)
Here is our big tree in the living room. This takes so long to get up every year but I think it looks so pretty when it's all done. I don't have themed trees I just use lots of different ornaments and lots of different colors. Whenever we go on vacations or trips I get an ornament so we have all of those ornaments on this tree too. My favorite ornaments are the ones Brock and Ava have made at school and church!
This is the tree in our office which is right next to our dining room. We have big windows in there and you can see this tree from the street. Brock and Ava love colored lights so this tree has covered lights. We put presents under this tree for our extended family and friends basically everyone who isn't going to be at our house on Christmas morning.
