Tree up- CHECK!

So, we put up our tree the day after Thanksgiving. It was fun- as usual. I'm not real picky about ornaments or whatnot. We have no set colors, or shapes. In fact, most of my ornaments are hand-me-downs from my parents. I found one from 1986. I think it was a gift at a school party- back when they were CHRISTMAS parties and not "Holiday" parties.

The world is going to end soon because i'm first....either that or i'm being really lazy today and sitting here instead of doing house work....anyways.....Tree looks great!! Yeah for stars!! I always put a star on my tree. Are your walls green? I love it!! I've been looking for a green to paint my walls. What's the name?....Sorry i'm overly excited 'cause i'm first and it's the only time it'll happen, gotta take when i can. :)

Sei and Ted would get along. Once Ted took pictures of my butt when I was working out. I had NO idea until I found them later. What the heck?

I laughed so hard when you mentioned Speedy Gonzales, because Ted wouldn't shut up about him last night. It was so random! Man...I am going to post about that. It was so funny.

Boot-ay!

No tree for us this year.
We do tree/decorations the day after Thanksgiving, but we weren't here so...
so it's almost not worth all the time and effort to put it up this late in the month.
Right?

Hey! We have the same star! And I'm the same way with the ornaments. I have some that are from when I was a kid--they're beginning to fall apart.
The whole "Holiday" party is lame. I asked my daughter's teacher (cuz I'm the HR parent) & she's all for Christmas stuff. Yay!
NCS: Not worth all the time & effort?? What?!? You can't have Christmas w/o the tree! Ours has only been up for 5 days.

Klin said...

NCS- Put up the tree! that is all.

Tori- So are you saying Sei is a butt man?

I likey the tree. I want a speedy gonzales ornament. That's just cool.

When I quit barfing every time I move then I'll take pics.

Camille said...

Hey! I have that star too! I guess we're all just cool like that. I think trees look best with a mishmash of ornaments, it gives it character.

Stacey said...

Dude! You posted 2 pictures of your bootay in less than a week! You couldn't even get me to do one picture...of course I don't have near the awesome booty that you do.

Speedy Gonzales rules! I want one of those ornaments.

NCS~you gotta put up your tree,yo!

That is all.

What is he taking a picture of exactly? It looks to me like he was going to take a picture of you and then changed his mind but while putting down the camera he accidently clicked off a picture.
Ok maybe not!

Nobo said...

What? That's a darling little gingerbread ornament that he took a picture of.

K said...

Livie looks like Izzy in that first picture! We have a "comfortable" tree, too. Maybe someday, like when all the kids are in college, I can have a tree with a theme and matching ribbons and stuff. 'Course, I'd have to buy it already decorated from the Festival of Trees or some place, 'cuz I'm not crafty like that, but it still counts if you buy it, right?

Our Christmas tree was like that growing up, too. No set color or anythig. We just had a bunch of random ornaments that we made or bought over the years, and I loved it :)
Cute tree!!! :D

I love Christmas tree decorating--such great memories. I love the paper chains--they are so fun.

chellie said...

Nice booty.

Cute tree.

Darling family!

Dapoppins said...

I am checking out Millie's list...

Love that you let your family do the tree. I just let the kids take over this year and left all my breakable decorations in the box.

Nancy Face said...

I love that you have a paper chain garland, because those are so happy! We all know what Sei loves. ;)

That last pic is hilarious! Mostly because Jeremy just did the same thing while I was baking some cookies the other night.

Nice back though, Baby!
