Annual Parade of Trees


I seem to lack self-control when it comes to any kind of decorating...This year we topped out at 12 trees.

...yep, 2 live, 10 artificial, 6 of them are over 6 feet...I know this seems a bit extreme to some, but it's my collecting (and my kids' collecting) that seem to get the better of me each season...and there always seems room for one more tree...

My fave this year...it's the live one in my bedroom, it's the best night light ever...


And here's the guest room tree...


...and then hubby's faves, the white and wintry twins that flank the fireplace...


...and then there's the "tree" of all my collected vintage goodies-- many from my childhood...

We've also got the boys' "Star Wars Tree", "The Disney Tree" in Charlotte's room, the tree of all the kids handmade goodies (most treasured item on this tree is the little snowman doll Hayley made for her Uncle Micah at aged 5 -- she's now 16!)

...and then the "real" tree...that's the one that Santa puts the presents under, of course!



Thanks to my decorating crew: Allie & Charlotte for making this parade possible. I love seeing all our baubles hang from the many branches...

Now putting them away, well, that's another story! But it's all worth it...each room helps us make merry and celebrate the season.

Twelve trees? Yep, I just may be ditching Long Island in favor of hanging out at your house instead next Christmas! Love the beautiful beautiful pictures, specially the tree in your room.

I want not concur on it. I regard as polite post. Particularly the appellation attracted me to read the whole story.
