Hubby came home on Friday night with a nine foot Christmas tree.  It was seven feet around.  A bit insane as it was the week before Christmas and I had insisted on not getting a Christmas tree this year because we aren't going to be home for Christmas- but like a good hubby- he didn't listen...and I love drinking hot cocoa by the light of the Christmas tree...some pics for you to enjoy!!
Putting up the lights- over 1100 of them

Close up- might be my christmas card next year.

Just a cute random picture of my cat who had found a left over boa from Halloween

The view from my dining room- just to give a bit of scale to the tree!


  1. Wow Col! That is some amazing Christmas tree, and what a lot of pretty, twinkling lights. What a lovely hubby to go out and buy one anyway!! He is such a keeper! ThaT PHoto of the lights would certainly make a lovely Christmas card next year. That little cat photo is so cute with the boa. Bless!! I wish you and hubby all the very best at Christmas time, and thank you for your friendship during this past year. Love & Hugs.

  2. Wow! What Diane said... that is an awesome tree. We settled for a very small artificial one that sets on our coffee table. I love the way you have the lights on it. Very pretty.

  3. Great tree Nic. Hubby did so good! Sometimes it's good when they don't listen isn't it? He looks so proud. Love the pictures! Thanks.

  4. WOWSER - That is SOME tree. It is gorgeous and HUGE. Wow. I love it.

    I think Kitty ought to be your Halloween card too! She is a cutie.

    Thanks for posting this - I got quite the chuckle out of it. heehee
