    Ours may go up this weekend. Depends on whether I feel like dragging it out, as it is artificial.

    I decorated 2 weeks ago I believe. I want to enjoy mine as long as possible. That being said, they are usually down the day after Christmas.

    We normally put ours up the 2nd weekend in December, so it will be the 11th this year.

    Our annual tree decorating tradition with our friends and their girls will probably be next Wednesday if the girls can last that long

    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    no matter how close or far apart you may be.

    I have several... One is a sled my youngest son made for me when he was quite young. Every year he complains that I put it on the tree. But when I take it out and look at it, it reminds me of the cute little guy he once was. And now I see that same cute little guy in Nathanael. One day maybe he'll make an ornament to go on our tree!

    I also have a tiny manger scene that I got in Germany that is a favorite. Oh, and a cable car from San Francisco.

    We finished decoration the inside on the 14th and we finished the outside lights last weekend. Nothing gets turned on though until Thanksgiving night.

    Presents are all wrapped and either under the tree or ready to be shipped. Shopping is done!

    I'm doing mine on Saturday - it is usually the first weekend in December but as that is nearly a week into December this year and I can't wait that long it will have to be this weekend! The outside lights will wait until the following weekend though!

    It's usually the first weekend in December, but like Lisaw I couldn't wait that long this year! :D And I love the way the house looks when the Christmas stuff is up so I want to make the most of it. So it was going to be this weekend, but as the weather forecast is for blizzards here on Saturday we think it may be safer to delay going to buy our Christmas trees (we get real ones from a local farm but it's down some very gairy country roads that might be a bit difficult to get down in snow ).
    So we have now decided we will take the day off on Wednesday the 1st to get our trees, and will decorate the house this weekend with the garlands and other decorations

    Donna - I have a cable car tree ornament from San Fransisco too!

    My favourite ornament is an odd one - when we were kids for some reason my favourite was a very old-fashioned red glass pine cone with frost glitter on it. About 10 years I found one that was exactly the same and bought it - it reminds me of Christmasses as a little child


    Sandra, yes, we definitely should be posting photos!! :)
