Christmas Decorating

We finally got our tree on Friday night, Ickis stamped his approval on it Saturday morning by peeing on the lower branches. :p Hubby trimmed the lower ones off to give a less inviting place to pee and so far it has helped. We let it open for a day and then decorated it Saturday night. Here are a few pics; one taken Saturday night and then brighter one taken Sunday morning:

As you can see we have a red and silver theme going on for the tree. I love it. I didn't even get all of our ornaments on it this year; I have a bunch of silver roses that I usually put on but they are just a bit too heavy for the branches I think. I still like how it turned out though.

Did you notice all the stockings by the fireplace? Everyone in our houst gets one; Me, Hubby, Ickis, Tank, Pearl and our two cats Neko and Carmy. :) Santa already actually visited our house for the stockings as they are filling up; Santa likes to keep the things he picks up in one place and its easier to stuff the stockings than to try and store things. ;)


  1. LOVE the tree!!! Maybe not the pee, but the tree is beautiful...!

  2. Looks beautiful! Thanks for sharing your pictures!
    Love Clover xo

  3. I love the red and silver! Momma can't fill up our stockings until Christmas Eve because she says Daddy and I are too nosy. :)

  4. That is a very beautiful tree with a lovely color scheme. Mom says that once the children know how to decorate, there is no color scheme on a tree. ha ha


  5. Your tree is very pretty. We didn't put all our stuff on our trees this year either. That Santa is a smart dude (dudette?) for sure!
