Oh Christmas Tree Party

Today, I join with Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick, for her Oh Christmas Tree party to show you three of our Christmas Trees. It took almost two weeks, but I think I'm finally finished decorating them. This year, we have four trees. (Actually, there are more than four, but only four that require decorating).

This is a new one in the kitchen.

I went to Cracker Barrel and thought they had the cutest little gingerbread ornaments. They had some really nice Christmas items this year. Be sure to check them out if you get a chance because it's now on clearance for 40% off. Some of the ornaments also came from Michael's and Target's dollar spot. Sorry that I didn't get more close-up photos of this tree. This isn't my best post ever. LOL!
We have a Santa tree in the keeping room, similar to last year, but, apparently, I bought alot of ornaments on clearance at the end of last season because I couldn't seem to fit as many on the tree this year.The sign came from Dollar Tree this year. I removed the twine hanger and replaced it with a skinny red ribbon. Don't think that I'm feelin' it, and probably won't use it there next year.We went to Biltmore the weekend before Thanksgiving, since it's less than a 2 hour drive from our home and bought these personalized Santa ornaments for our girls. If you've never been to Biltmore, please add it to your "bucket list". It is hard to fathom the awesomeness of that home until you've seen it.We also went to Disney World over Easter, and the round Santa ornament came from Epcot. Like most people, I like to bring back ornaments from places we travel.

Then there is the foyer tree. This is my favorite tree, and it's the one at which we find Santa's gifts on Christmas morning. It looks much better in person than in photos. I wish it were in a room where we could view it more often. This is the first time, in probably the last 10 years, that I have left off ting ting, but to be honest, I was actually tired of decorating trees, so I stopped. Thought that would Ne-va happen!
This is the Biltmore ornament the Hubs and I share.
This one also came from the Biltmore trip.

A few more of the favorite ornaments...

Thanks for stopping by to view our decorations. Please come back to see more later in the week. As usual, there is no "hall" that goes un-decked in this house, so stay tuned.

If not, have a safe and Merry Christmas!
