Fun with Christmas Lights

There is not much going on our Christmas tree this year. I have decided to keep quality over quantity, choosig (or making) handmade over store-bought. So far our collection is very small, but fortunately, Christmas lights really do it for me.

We’ve also decided to keep the artificial tree for now. As much as I love the smell of pine needles(and sweeping the floor a hundred times a day) I am not sure if I can justify cutting down a tree, decorating it and then tossing it after two weeks.

What about you? Do you prefer a real tree or a fake one? And are you making any Christmas ornaments this year?

It’s always hard to get your kids to smile for holiday photos, isn’t it?

  1. While I love natural trees over artificial, I would go the artificial route for the same reasons as you – it just seems wasteful to do otherwise.

    But I don't even bother with a tree….it would just be asking for trouble with 6 birds, including one who has a strong inclination to find all electrical cords… 😉


  2. Your cats have naturally hilarious expressions…they could be staring into oblivion and it's just insanely funny!
    I have had an artificial tree for 4 years now and I love it. A little floofing and it's good to go. I sometime light a pine candle nearby…:)


  3. Loving these shots of your lights and kitty.

    I prefer a real tree but I just inherited a fake silver tree, from the 1960s, with green ornaments and green floodlight, so it's a fake one this year. I can't put lights on it, but plan to put them around the house in other places.

    Happy holidays!
