Oh Christmas Tree...
Hello wonderful friends...
Thought I would show you all firstly my parents Christmas tree then ours..
Every year my mum waits until the 12 December to put up the tree.. why I really dont know.. we are not religious and well I think its more of a habit now!
Over the years my mum has changed the colour of the baubles on the tree... oh you know, red and gold, blue and silver... multi-coloured... even themed ones! Some sights I may tell you! ha ha ha
This year .. well I made her a lovely tree decoration, remember this..
A lovely Prairie Schooler santa..
Ha ha my mum thinks its far too nice to put on her tree!! hmmm
So here is my mums tree this year...
Its well rather large... I think its 8 ft .
Now onto our tree!
Well remember recently I showed you all the outside photo..
It does look rather large! lol
Well not sure if you all know but where we currently live is tiny! Literally tiny.. and we could no way get a tree in, not in any shape or form... unfortunately.
So this year whilst in Ikea... yes Ikea!! Han and I saw the perfect solution!
Its a fabric tree!! ha ah ah
Its hung in our living room..
We are still deciding whether or not to hang lights or 'things' on it? Maybe some light things?
It just looks so life like and its really good as now we dont feel so left out! And yes a little festive :)
Funny I think .... I mean we are not doing anything traditional this year!
I dislike Christmas food... I dont eat meat so turkey is out! And well its just a load of veg on a plate then! So nothing special! The desert... well I dislike Christmas cake, pudding and mince pies. Its that dried fruit, I just dont like it. So Christmas food is out!! ha ah a
We like to do things slightly different in our family... this year as other years we are all going out for Christmas eve dinner. And as it happens Christmas eve is mine and Jon's anniversary.. we married in 2009 so years now... lovely :) As for the dinner we are all having... this year its a trip to an Indian restaurant... last year it was Chinese.. and we have done Mexican too!
What ever you are and what ever you are all doing.. I wish you all a very merry Christmas :)
Thought I had better say it now in case I dont get a chance!
Now back to my stitching! :)
