All your trees look great. I will not be putting a tree up this year. I have one son teaching in Thailand and the other son  out of state. My daughter and her husband will be out of town so we will be alone this year. I'm having a terrible time this year with all my children gone. I do hope you all have a wonderful holiday season.

We stopped decorating for Christmas several years ago.  I get out the Christmas quilts and table runners. Too many other things to do this time of year but appreciate other people's decorations!

Here's my tree this year. All the balls are just the styrofoam ones that are covered with ribbon. They're the only kind that survive the antics of mischievious cats! I know the original request was for Christmas tree photos, but I'm including my fireplace, too. The ribbon tree, mantle scarf and stockings are handmade. I also made the treetop angel. She's been around a lot of years.

Hope more people post photos of their Christmas decorations-- it's fun to see what everyone else has!

Merry Christmas!

This is the extent of my decorations.  I also put a single candle in each of my windows.

If you look closely, the lights that came attached with the tree no longer work, I had to add the white strings cause that's all I had in my stash, will get green strings for next year.  It's very pretty in person, not here.

Thanks Leslie, when my kids were little they had the job of decorating the tree after dad set it up and strung the lights.  All the decorations ended up on the bottom of the tree in their early years and we never moved an ornament.  As they grew older, a little at a time, the middle of the tree got decorated and then the top eventually.  The rule was that the youngest child, that year, got to hang the angel, then they took turns when the babies stopped coming.  Our tree always looked beautiful, from the very first to the last when the kids moved on.  The first year I decorated alone I matched everything and it was a perfect tree.  YUCK, it was the ugliest tree I had ever had.  None after that was pretty because the kids were off on their own and it wasn't the same.

Melissa, you are not alone. You are in a great big boat full of other people who won't have family near enough to visit for whatever reason. My Son and DIL are spending Christmas with her family so it will just be me and my husband at home. I do expect a phone call though so hope you get calls as well. I put up a tree just for me to enjoy since I had not used my tree for years.  I had thought about not putting one up because there was no reason to other than I wanted one this year. 

Wish you a Merry Christmas

Melissa Halpain:
will not be putting a tree up this year.

Melissa, I feel you sadness.  I too have a hard time with the kids all grown and gone.  We don't put up a tree anymore either.  And with getting ready for a kitchen remodel, it's probably better that we don't.  But I send you my Christmas hugs.  You have a very Merry Christmas.
