And he'd love the fact that I can't get the picture the right way up. :point:

And I'd get a PM explaining very gently why I was such an idiot. :yes:

I miss the silly old git. :sorry:

Its a nice idea, maybe this one I won't be a humbug and put the tree up a little earlier than usual

We put our tree up for Mick on Thursday night and I posted it on Facebook but never managed to post a photo on here so will give it a go.
Be lovely to see all of our trees.

Great tree Dawn :thumbsup: Did a certain young man decorate that? He did a grand job!

Our tree won't be going up until 5 days a week before Christmas becasue we are moving house around the 17th! Argghhhh! And so it will probably be a very small tree. But I have just hung up a couple of Disney Christmas things here in memory of Mick while we pack our boxes up - not a lot but still for him :yes:

We have already agreed that when we go to WDW in May we will sit in the UK on EPCOT and have a drink for him. Miss you Mick :hug2:

Like I would need an extra reason to lift a glass, but yes, it would be an honor to have one for ol' Mick.

Since our tree is up and keeping with the high standard that Wendy laid down....I present our tree. (Sorry Mate - I could use some of your help right now)

:lol: I'm glad Cody is real :D Your tree is lovely though (hope you didn't mind me turning your photo round it was too beautiful not to see it properly)

We always have a real tree, Chris won't have an artificial one.

Just catatonic. Like my dogs.

Do you have to step over him because he won't move? :unsure:

It's a TWIG! Please don't tell me you paid loads for it.... Don't worry Dawn... I can send you one for 40.... goes into garden and climbs tree.... who else wants one?....:worship:

I got a whole forest here to choose from.... sheeeesh... I'm in the wrong business again!

I got mine at Home Depot but you can get them off eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Charlie-Brown-24-Christmas-Tree-w-Blanket-Ornament-NEW-Peanuts-Decoration-/190610007783?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c613de6e7#shId) and they'll ship internationally.

Tom (:macwave:... and they're loads cheaper than 40! Highway robbery I tell 'ya!)

If the fireplace is on...you bet! It's a wonder his fur doesn't combust!

Ooops! Sorry. Thank you Wendy....my neck was getting sore craneing over to one side. Oh and thanks about the tree. DD came home from college and wouldn't allow us to put up the "Old Folks" small tree.

Ok.. here are the pics...

and let me just say that trying to keep a tree in decent condition with a preschooler, a toddler and three dogs its become a challenge

Natalia's favorite game is HIT THE ORNAMENT... and YES she is ALWAYS by the tree :yes:

:wave:I like this thread! We had to get a new one this year because our old one burned out! We usually have a real and artificial but again this year with the chemo we went just with an artificial. Hubbie brought it home and it's huge 9.5 feet tall!Everyone has such lovely trees. Does anyone here put up a village too?

Mari
