Annual Parade of Trees...



I have an issue (well I have more than one, but let's not go there at this time)...as I was saying, I have an issue and you long time BLOG readers know that Christmas is the perfect day to share it...yes, it's that tree addiction...only 11 this year, but I am obsessed with decorating those branches with all manner of baubles and beads!

Here's a peek at the annual tree parade at our house this year (keep scrolling for links to 2007, 2008 and 2009 parades via this blog...)

...here's the tree in the front hall...it hosts all the kiddos' handmade and goodies from over the years, from pre-school projects to this year's hand made cards...


....the tree in the bedroom...simple birds and wishes...


...the tree in the den...this is the one with all the old glass ornies and new glass treasures; it's the one where Santa leaves the presents...


...the tree in the living room...



...then there are small trees in the hall, two in the mudroom -- one shown here and oh, yes one in the garage with little cars on it that I forgot to photo...


...of course you need one in the bathroom too!


...and in the boys' room...


...and in my daughter's room...


And then there is the hutch...




Here's a link to last years Tree Parade Post of 2009:

And the 2007 Parade:

And not that I haven't had this addiction to tree decorating for some time now, but it pre-dates the BLOG addiction by about 15 years so there's no more versions to share...

Enjoy every moment today and if you have one tree or many, may they remind you of the true joy of the season and add a festive note to your celebrations...

Merry Christmas, Jen - love the trees {but the mud room???? really???} ;o) I'll just enjoy my one tree but it is 14'-16' tall so that's gotta count for something!
