I had a similar contest during my decorating yesterday - Dining room floor 1, shepherd from nativity set, 0. A little glue and he's fine, although he'll tilt to the right for the rest of his life.
We cut ours from a friends tree lot, years ago her father had the great idea to plant an acre of trees to sell as Christmas trees then lost interest, they sell them now to family and friends for $20 tree, of course you find it and you cut it but thats half the fun.
Have to say its the prickliest tree I've ever had and is resisting all attempts to decorate it so far.

Foot sore but better today, the look on hubbys face when he saw all that blood was priceless, I'm so proud he didn't faint and he passed the vampire test too !!

Just tell everyone he is looking for a really tiny sheep, so he is leaning over.

I have become more minimal in my Christmas decorations since we downsized and moved away from family. Most Christmases lately have been just the 2 of us. Not only that, but in a warm climate, I find that it is harder to get in the mood.
This year, however, I'm thrilled that the kids and grandkids will be here. When I went to drag out all the Christmas decorations to deck my halls, I found them to be a bit lacking, and I used to have a house that was twice as big. I will definitely try to boost the wow factor with the after Christmas sales, but no way am I spending $100. for a decent looking wreath, etc. I'd rather spend the money on other things.
I remember when I routinely went all out for decorations. Every year I spent a lot of money on new things, and yet, the following year, I still felt like I needed to spend a lot on new things. Its kind of strange. I guess I need to take pictures, so I remember what I did?
Kathryn..I feel your pain. Why does an unconvincing bunch of plastic cost so much? I would buy only real greenery, but here it is too hot and it looks like crap well before Christmas. I would never have a fake tree, though.

I put some sticky things on my mirror and my husband put up some door wrap, which uhhh he didn't do too well.

Probably most things to be done this weekend, even though I have a final to study for---blah. My fault for being the perpetual student.

Tree is up and decorated. It's a tad crooked, but it's up and decorated.

on my side everything is going on lavish. Guess what I have a very enthusiastic girl of eight and she wants everything that fancy her mind for the Christmas decorations. I tried to convince her about using the same things from the last year and then see what we need more. But every time she goes out she wants some more.
So we are going to have a very over decorative Christmas this year.

Oh my... you just gave me a wonderful idea for my patio wall that faces the street. Thank you! I think I'll wrap up a piece of foam core board in Christmas wrap and a huge red bow, thne attach it to the wood framing in the wall, right smack in the center, then run lights alone the top of the wall to illuminate the "gift" at night. Simple, cheap, and I'm no longer the big black spot in the middle of the cul-de-sac.
