As there appears to be many erections happening today i thought it was appropriate to start this annual thread!


So show us your trees! Are you a colour co-ordinator, shop worthy tree decorator, or more like an elf threw up a collection of random decorations on the tree?

here is ours... can you guess what type of household we are?

I can't admire the erection in full because I am too focused on the DARLING boys! Wow, they are super cute!

I don;'t do my tree till after dad's birthday on the 15th. Hopefully it'll lessen the chances of the toddler destroying it as well.
I have a small tree I can put up on a table or buffet. Worked last year but this year she knows how to drag a chair around and climb up...

lol thanks BMJ... i wish they would use their cuteness for good instead of evil!!! DS2 in particular... this is a rare photo of DS1 actually smiling normally... he usually comes off completely evil and wrong... think of sheldon from Big Bang smiling... it just isn't right!

My son is about to have his first erection experience. He is quite excited about it. I will post photos later for anyone who'd like to see!

Now that statement is all sorts of wrong roll2.gif

Our erection is delayed due to our builders erecting something else.

I'm going to be a PW and post my trees and garland (that I made) and wreath (that I made!)

I almost blew a valve this morning because DF has said that when we moved if (*cough* when *cough*) we have several living areas then I can put a tree in each room, so I have my three trees ALL planned and I can't WAIT!!!!

After Christmas last year we bought a new black tree, and we are going with a cobalt, lime and fuchsia theme for decorations wink.gif Unfortunately none of the photos do the colours justice!



This little hot pink tree normally sits on the dining table, but that also has a bundle of stuff on it atm, so I moved it to take the photo



I made this wreath a few weeks ago original.gif The photos don't do the colours justice, they are same brightness as the rest of the decorations original.gif



Just to make the loungeroom pretty, I've put up garland... Once we move and reorganise our stuff I'll re-jig the decorations original.gif

Thanks original.gif

Our tree isn't that high.. maybe 6'6" including the star? Our ceiling is only 7ft, low ceilings make the tree look huge LOL

Thanks original.gif Some of the cats have already had a spray of water... but that was when they were just sniffing the new tree. Actually they were far more interested in the tree box rather than the tree hehehe So far, no problems! Actually the dog was more of an issue, I turned around and here she was licking all my glitter ornaments that I had lined up on the floor!

I'm more worried about the garland and presents!
