well it makes ME laugh

Tree vs. Tree

Some people know how to put up a Christmas Tree, some don’t.  Some know how to put up a tree only to have it fall, some don’t.

For those of you who are in the St. Francis de Sales circle, I want you to guess to whom the following trees belong (no real names, please).  One is a first attempt at a tree, one is obviously the millionth.

Hey, look at the lights I got for next to nothing!
Oh, wait.  They’re outdoor lights for bushes?
Well, at least my tree is sturdy, thanks to MotherCrab’s extra tree stand!

And a partridge ornament in a pear tree.
Nothing says Christmas like 10 million lights, garland and breakable ornaments.
The trick is to put lights up and down each branch, spend 5 days alone decorating,
and forget to tighten the screws in the tree stand sufficiently.

Ah, holiday memories!

  1. The first and second one is JJR's tree. I recognize the iron and ironing board in the background that used to be in my basement… along with JJR. šŸ™‚ And the second one is still JJR's because of the lights for bushes draped over the top of the tree. The ornament is a really nice touch though. šŸ™‚

  2. BIC, I have to agree Mickey's caps are awesome, but that 4th photo is gorgeous. I have yet to see either of these trees in person, ahem, ahem. I just keep receiving photos from proud tree owners. If anyone else wants to send me a photo of his Christmas tree, just let me know.

  3. Ugh. I know the feeling of the tree toppling over. Lost quite a few expensive (and brand new) ornaments when that happened. And now we have an artificial tree.
