My Christmas Tree is up, a week away from Halloween!

I couldn't wait any longer! Just one of my trees is out, not the big tree. I was watching QVC yesterday on one of the shows selling Christmas trees and decided I wanted a tree up now! I grabbed out my table top tree and set it up in my bedroom with white lights all over it. That is the earliest I ever put a tree up. Just think, next week I will be getting the rest of my Christmas stuff out!

I am jealous!!!!!! I cleaned everything off the top of my kitchen cabinets earlier so that I could put some of my santas up there at christmas and now it looks so bare that I may just have to get them out early.

That's great! My brother dragged his out in August and it's been up in his front window lighting up the town! People think he's nuts. I still have to decorate it though. Happy Christmas decorating to you.

Not worth a picture yet. It's a 2ft tall Christmas tree that has pine cones attached to it with white lights.. I didn't even decorate it yet. Just set it up and plugged in the lights. I bought this tree in February on clearance for 35 cents!

Oh no! Now CharlestonNole will be posting on my thread, "This thread is worthless without pics!"

When I get the tree fixed up I will post something.

I've always taken a lot of ribbing for my year round Christmas excitement, year round Christmas movies, year round Christmas music, early bird shopping, etc.......boy it's nice to find a place where I'm not the only one who thinks about it year round and starts prep early.

This year my kids are dying to go hunt for a real Christmas tree (we usually do fake) so my tree won't go up until the first week of Dec. this year. But, it will be worth it because I do love real trees and do love tromping around the mountain looking for the perfect tree.

Right now we have Halloween lights on the house so the Christmas lights will have to wait a few more weeks. But, I got new outdoor lighting on clearance last year and I"m excited about the "new look" we will have this year.
