YEP! I am one of those crazy people that has Christmas on the brain all year long! Every year I add more trees and decorations to the house. This year we will have a total of five trees up. (My goal is to eventually have one in every room!)
The kids both have their own trees now, so they are included in the five. They will decorate theirs, and I will be decorating the other three.
I always start putting up the trees in November because I like to take my time decorating them, and if they are up earlier that means I get to enjoy them longer.
So, this weekend I got the first tree up. It is the cardinal/woodland themed tree.
(I really like the picture above. I am thinking I may need to make my Christmas cards with it one of these years!)
It has picks with "ice" on the ends, berries, pine cones, cardinals, and all kinds of things sticking out of it. It sits in the dining room.
I chose cardinals because they are one of my favorite outdoor birds! I love to see them in the winter time with their red feathers contrasting against the white snow. SO PRETTY!
