Tree-ing

Okay, Christmas is not quite officially over. Though I do plan to get the trees down this weekend. Last night we did Tree-ing. My dear friend Flori wanted to know, "Is this a WI thing?" I'm not sure actually. Tree-ing is when you make the rounds of your friends and/or family and ooooooo and aaaaaaah over their Christmas trees. There is usually some form of eating and drinking involved also. This year we started at our house for appetizers and tree oooo-ing. The guys are especially good at this, they coordinate who is going to oooooooo and who is going to aaaaaaaah. Yeah, we know they are making fun of us girls but we can deal with it.
We have a traditional tree in the living room, and then we do a theme tree in the dining room.


This year Vanessa got to do the dining room tree and she did a Nutcracker Suite theme. I especially liked the fairy lights at the bottom, and those are Clara's shoes that she throws at the mouse king. Here is a close up of part of her tree with some beautiful antique mittens (the girls all wore them at one time) and some blown glass nutcrackers and tiaras.














The next house we had a salad course and ooooo'd and aaaaaaah'd over another traditional tree. My friend Cookie has some cute cute garlands that look like teeny gumdrops, though they don't' show up in this picture.





Then on to our friend Deanna's trees. She had 4. Yes you read that right four. One average sized one in her porch with ornaments from students, one theme tree in her dining room- the PINK tree. Everything on it including the lights was pink. Next there is a small tree in her music room with her youngest daughters bear and pony ornaments, and last a little tree in her doll room with more student ornaments. Then we had chili and played cards before heading home.
Here is a close up of some of her pink ornaments...
Here is the music room tree on her piano.........
Is this not the cutest ornament?? the potholder is fabric!
All in all a very successful "tree-ing".

Sounds like a fun time and a great tradition. As you can see, I am also way behind on reading my blogs. I hope next week lets me catch up.

sounds like fun...I wish I could find the pic of the tree dd had a few years back in her room- 14 years of Barbie ornaments- every one that was released spring and Christmas- pink tulle and lights. We went from that to Nightmare before Christmas from 12-14 scarey-lol. DD collects nutcrackers too

I am so jealous! I soooo want to go tree-ing next year with you! WI seems to be the friendliest place on earth to live. Such great friends and traditions. Oh, can you please change the climate so I can move there? It only needs to stay about 65 degrees... that's all...

What a fun idea to visit friends to look at the Christmas trees.
They all looks great. ;-)
