Its always been a tradition growing up (and now with the wifey) to open one gift the night before. Nino got a new bed and some catnip, which he is enjoying here. He also just loves laying under the tree. Merry Xmas everyone here at TPR! :)

Hello there!
I want to buy an artificial tree for the coming Christmas. So can anyone suggest me where to buy it from?
Thanks in advance.

^ A store that sells them.

I'm about ready to bring my non-live tree down from upstairs, and go to work,
making it purty again with all it's lights (8 settings!) and a few new ornaments
to be added to it, this time round. Will post it all, when I get going here.

But - in the mean time - anybody want to show what they've got going tree-wise, this Season?

We have one beautiful Martha Stewart tree inside, and then we have 27 RGB trees outside, and one 20ft tall tree outside too!! :lover:
Bigger is not always better.

(P)osting (M)y (C)hristmas (T)ree ~ Part 1

I finally talked myself into bringing down our small, slightly pitiful, but fully artificial greenery for the annual couple of weeks of LIGHTS! ~ TINSEL! ~ ORNAMENTS! ~ THE CAT! The lights were already on it, so it's really a no-brainer, to bring it downstairs, plug it in, and start from there. "Fake Tree Trimming For Dummies!"

I did have Three Brand New Ornaments to trim the tree, with. One was from Cedar Park, which some of you may have seen in my June CP TR amid the Souvenirs Section. :smile: And it was definitely a fave coaster for me, Maverick was. I even got the t-shirt!!! The next ornament closely resembled what I would think a coach for Cinderella might look like. All sparkles silver and gold, covering it. I bought it locally, but for now, it's Cindy's....no doubt about it. :wink: The third one I just picked up from...Starbucks. And yes, for those who don't know, they do come up with ornaments, too. Pretty nice ones from time to time, I have seen. But this year, they did a French Coffee Press and I had to get me one, no second thoughts at - all. I love my FPC when I get around to actually making some. I have two presses, slowly gaining more cobwebs as I type this. Eventually I'll get back to them...

So here's the start of trimming the tree. More to come in a few days, if I stop procrastinating enough about it.

Humbug. :angel:

PMCT Part 2

This is a fun non-ornament, I picked up last year at a Home Depot. They had a little ferris wheel with carols a-caroling,
but those were all gone. Instead, I picked up this, which now has the distinction of being called my Holiday Larson Loop.
(It was called a coaster in the packaging, so there ya go.)

Ho ho ho. :angel:

It's perfect, really. And the carols that are randomly played, one at a time, as the "coaster" goes round and round, are long ones!
They appear to last a good few verses of the carol, depending which one is playing. And the cars keep going round and round,
with the lights rotating on and off. Much fun, and although I didn't change out the batteries yet (bad bear), it's still running pretty good.

The "coaster" does need a bit of a push. But that's okay. It's A Larson Loop! ;)

Here's our finished tree - with nothing underneath it, LOL! We're so behind in all of this....

And a shot of the mantle piece above the fire place, which this season, has
all the cards we get from friends and loved ones.

Happy Holidays Everyone! :angel:
