Loving your avant garde tree young Steven :wave: :xmastree6:

Liking the hippo very much :hippo:

Even more, loving the sighting of Mousetrap on the shelves behind...want to play...:HamsterDance:


***Deb discovers that this forum seems to have an inordinate number of hippo smilies (only the International Hippo Rescue Society Forum has maybe has more) and ponders that of course this can''t possibly have anything to do with Dawn***

I think it's a lovely tree! Time enough for perfection when the boy is grown to a man. :(

Huzzah! Steven! Great Tree! :yes:

Good job Steven!!

Beccaberry
04-12-2008, 07:11 PM
Steven...would you like to come decorate my tree? You could stay for awhile and play with Andrew...he has loads of legos :D

Dawn
04-12-2008, 07:13 PM
When should I send him?

Dawn
04-12-2008, 07:14 PM
Can anyone spot the guinea pig and tub of yellow play doh? :rotfl:

Tink
04-12-2008, 07:15 PM
Oh! Oh! Then he could come down here and entertain the arriving crew. :D :D Seth is coming for his birthday the weekend of the 13th, so Steven could have cake and a swim. :yes:

Shall we expect him soon, Dawn? Oh. You'll want him home for Christmas, won't you? :(

Got em! :thumbsup:

Any more? It's like playing Where's Wally :D

Dawn
04-12-2008, 07:22 PM
Well we need him for the school play on the 10th but he's available after that until 23rd please. :D

Tink
04-12-2008, 07:25 PM
Well, if you send him right out on the 11th he could be here and rested by the 13th. :yes: Then Becca could take him home with her, but only for a few days. Then he could come back here when I get back from Dallas (around the 19th or so) and then I'll put him on a plane early on the 23rd. :yes:

HEY! This really could work! :D :D :D

Johnie
04-12-2008, 07:36 PM
I'm leaving on the 11th if you'd like him to accompany us on the trip down.

Tinker

Are you telling me that they have more than we do :eek3: :eek3:

And of course it has EVERYTHING to do with Dawn :yes:

Beccaberry
04-12-2008, 08:23 PM
I'm free from the 19th til the 5th :D Or he could stay longer and help me teach my classes...

Deb
04-12-2008, 09:02 PM
Before Steven goes on his transatlantic jaunt can he pop up here and throw some decorations at my tree? And bring Mousetrap, Kerplunk and Buckaroo please? :unsure:

Tink
04-12-2008, 11:43 PM
Well, he'd better plan on leaving before the 10th then! He's got quite a world tour to make.

Joseph will just have to wait for next year. :yes: :wink:

OH! There ARE going to be photos of our budding star, yes? :eek: :9:

Ursula

Not that they do much when they are in the fridge hibernating :unsure: I do have two babies still awake which he could bath for me :yes:

Oh how pretty! I would love to have a white tree. :yes:

05-12-2008, 04:51 PM
The trees look wonderful! Sadly, I cannot post a picture of my tree, but it's about 7' to 8' feet tall (we have a large living room) filled with decorations (most are yes, Disney).

But, anyways, those trees look great!

Your tree sounds beautiful, Treehouse! :yes: I do so much like great big trees. I've been known to buy trees that were too big and had to be severely trimmed to fit in the house! :eek:

Thanks for telling us about yours. :yes:

Your welcome. I don't think we've ever had a tree under 5 feet before. Our living room ceiling is quite large. It's about 18 feet (literally). So, we try for big trees! :)

Mairead, turn every light off in the room, disable the flash and just use the lights on tree. If you can adjust the iso try that, try a low iso and then increase and see which one is best :thumbsup: i'm working on mine, unfortunately there's not enough light coming off my lights - i am so darned picky these days :unsure:

Now I need a Jack Frost candle!

BC, that is a LOVELY shot!

Deb
07-12-2008, 06:53 PM
Oooh, lots of lovely trees! They're all gorgeous!

I sort of did mine today, but it's not totally finished :unsure: It's about 10 - 11 feet tall and as OH left the stepladders elsewhere I can't reach to put a proper tree topper on or to rearrange the abundance of tinsel near the top - I managed to throw things "Steven Style" at the top without falling off the chair but it needs fine tuning when the ladders arrive:shrug: You'll also notice that the bottom bit is a bit sparse in the light and decoration department - we're not sure how new cat Lola is going to be with it so am keeping harmful things from the bottom for at least a few days to see how she handles it. She's not really lived in a house before so I'm not sure she knows what it is :) She did enjoy helping to put things on it though! An the last pic has a little orb thing on it but I wanted to show her posing on the hearth :D

Dawn
07-12-2008, 06:57 PM
OMG I want your house!!!!!!! :bugeye:

Does it come with that pretty cat? :D

Deb
07-12-2008, 06:57 PM
This is the first Disney ornament I ever bought from Disneyland in 1989!

And here is the heavenly host of angels, Disney stylie! :D

Deb

07-12-2008, 07:00 PM
Your house is even better on the inside than it is on the outside!

The tree is beautiful. I love that your dog and cat are colour coordinated with each other and the house :lol:

Dawn
07-12-2008, 07:02 PM
No Willow likes to kiss all other animals. She kisses every dog she meets. She used to kiss the guinea pigs. Oh she chases the big ginger cat off of the parsley patch but mostly she loves other animals and will just kiss them.

I seriously love your house. :D

Beccaberry
07-12-2008, 07:04 PM
Oh Deb, what a beautiful home!!! I love that first photo of kitty helping!! Wow. Really lovely home...and I'd LOVE to have a tree that tall!

All the trees are lovely. Deb your house is stunning. and guess what i bought my first yankee candle yesterday. Went to a garden center and they had a huge stand. I have bought the christmas cookie ones. I wanted gingerbread ones but they had sold out. We have put the bumble family explosion up. I will post pictures tomorrow.

mumof2
07-12-2008, 07:15 PM

Well, I didn't light the log fire in case it looked like I'd copied from you :D and I removed the Bride of Chucky and replaced it with the cat.

Thanks everyone for your comments (mostly about my house, not about my tree :tongue: ), I'll sort some pics out and will post some of my house for you. Taking bookings for housesitters for holidays!! :D

did it say in your personality test that you were type A? :ROFL1:

lisaw
07-12-2008, 07:27 PM
Yes that part was accurate :taunt:

Edited to add: From wikipedia

Type A individuals can be described as impatient, excessively time-conscious, insecure about their status, highly competitive, hostile and aggressive, and incapable of relaxation. [1] They are often high achieving workaholics who multi-task, drive themselves with deadlines, and are unhappy about the smallest of delays. Because of these characteristics, Type A individuals are often described as "stress junkies."

OMG that is me completely! :rolleyes: I now know I need help :lol:

Ok! you're on!

Lisaw, all three of the pets are fully colour coordinated! All rescues, yet all fit in very nicely to the decor in this new place :D

I'm with Becca in thinking the Bumble Family Explosion is a cocktail with Vodka, I'm thinking maybe a cranberry juice mixer? Maybe a teensy bit of honey in homage to the "bumble" bit? :D

Ok...here's my downstairs tree...it's quite small...only 4 feet...but we call it, "A few of our favorite things" tree...each year we purchase (or make) an ornament that represents something that is a favorite of ours...

The tree

http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o368/beccaberry73/DSCN0186.jpg

Our ornaments for this year...

Mine (Kohl's had the *cutest* martini shaker, but we're all out by the time I got there, BOO!)

Jon's (Bless him, hope springs eternal, I s'pose :wink: )

http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o368/beccaberry73/DSCN0201.jpg

Baleigh's (Oh! To watch your children discover "the classics" :D )

http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o368/beccaberry73/DSCN0191.jpg

And Andrew's (...and then there are those timeless treasures...you should hear them talk!)

http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o368/beccaberry73/DSCN0200.jpg

Ok, I'm off to see if there's any snow left...perhaps I'll have a chance to post a few shots of the "big" tree when I return!

Now I just have to find my Christmas moose...

I love all the trees......they are so beautiful.

I don't think we are putting the tree up this year. We've been gone every weekend it seems and I still cannot figure out how to keep the cats away from the tree. Well, except Cutie Pie, that is only because the tree attacked him when he was a kitten.....that's his story anyway :yes:

Beccaberry
08-12-2008, 02:46 AM

Here is a picture of our tree this Christmas. It is a prelit artificial tree (DW is alergic to living trees and I am alergic to picking up dead needles). We have many wonderful ornaments from friends and family (a few from over the years in Disney ornament exchanges too). Some of our favorite are hand made, the Disney Dough ornaments we made back in 1969 as a gift to our first students (one remains from the lot...dopey) - some of our students thought they were cookies and tried to eat them.

The japaneese one was supposedly hand made by nuns some where in Japan..who knew (gift from my favorite aunt - God rest her soul)

Some of the Mickey ornaments from last trip

My kayak ornament

My exchange ornament from last year (mickey snowglobe one)

The sorcerer's apprentice hat

Too many to pick, we love our tree.

Thank you all, you should see us putting up the tree, we can't just put up the ornaments without a "do you remember" story to go with it..and the order is important too...the red Japaneese one always has to go up first.

Sarah..you bet, it is on my list. My SIL lives in Louisville near Boulder. I have a few rivers I would love to run, but hard to get my boat out there as we fly out. Want to run the Blue in Breckenridge, Clear Creek in Golden, and Boulder Creek in town...too old to be an adrenaline junky...stick to class III - IV.

Last photo..promise....forgot to include this from description. We bought the little red Mickey Christmas balls last year at WDW

The tree

Baleigh's (Oh! To watch your children discover "the classics" :D )

And Andrew's (...and then there are those timeless treasures...you should hear them talk!)

Ok, I'm off to see if there's any snow left...perhaps I'll have a chance to post a few shots of the "big" tree when I return!

I did it as part of a tour group on one of those "guided" raft things. I use the term "guided" loosely as our guides looked and acted as though they'd walked straight off the set of the Deliverance. :eek:

We rafted rapids for 2 hours along the stretch they used for the Atlanta Olympics. As we hit the first rapid I honestly thought we would die. But as we emerged from the other side the adrenalin rush was amazing. It was awesome. :D

And completely nothing to do with Christmas trees. :rotfl:

It is like the start of all his Birthday celebrations. Sooooooooo we bought him a really rubbish 4ft tree and some cheap decorations to go on it. We put it up without telling him and he was so chuffed when he got up on his Birthday, you would have thought we had given him the moon lol.:rotfl:
