Sounds like a wonderful tradition! We put up our tree today and started to decorate it! I would love a real tree but with my hayfever it is a no go!


What a neat family tradition that I'm sure you will continue for many years to come. I look forward to seeing pics of your tree all decorated!

Congrats also to both of your cute little nieces on their awards at junior prizegiving today!


wow cut your own tree down... gosh so so cool.... hope the madness starts to be more enjoyable now all the busy times are over. As for the camera... mmm not sure what I would do without my camera!!!! eeekkkk


It is a nice tradition. We have a nephew whose birthday is just before Christmas as well and their tree goes up afterwards so that he can just celebrate his birthday first.


What a lovely tradition Trina!

I can just picture you all in the car singing at the top of your voices......LOL!

We use to have a real Christmas tree for many years when the boys were all younger.....I love the smell in the house....we have now moved to a plastic one......but I also decorate out the back garden with some Santa stop Here signs....etc......just for fun....even the BIG KIDS get a kick out of this.......LOL!


Your Christmas tree tradition sounds good :)


I just loooove the smell of a real tree! we always went and chopped our own down when I was a kid - it was great! can't wait to see yours all decorated up!


Can I have a little of your holiday cheer Trina!! This is normally my favourite time of the year but this year I just want it over and done with!!

So glad you are having a great month though!!


isn't it neat having family traditions for all the special times!


Nice idea. Ours went up the same time as yours thanks to the local scouts. God, I hear you about children too.


We put ours up last weekend :)
