    I have hidden away some cash just in case Donna

    Steph I am sure that you have a beautiful tree and we want to see pctures of it once it is set up
    My problem is that I was dropped on my head when I was a kid and grew up next to a nuclear power plant which is why I turned out to be the way I am lol.

    I was out shopping last night and today but I did not have any luck finding a tree topper....well actually I did find one. It was an angel. It was crytstal, 18 inches tall, and around $200.
    I was concerned about the weight and how I would be able to securely fasten it to the top of the tree. If it came crashing down it would smash a lot of ornaments. My wife was also not happy with the thought of spending $200 for a topper. I was also worried about getting a beating from her lol.

    I'm sure it was gorgious, but you're right to worry about all those pretty ornaments. I had the whole tree fall over twice! The first time - a real tree - just didn't have a straight trunk. It fell over while we were away for a few days and broke "Our First Christmas Together" ornament! Luckily, I had two of the same ornament! The second time was an artificial tree - the built-in stand broke and the tree toppled! I lost 6 ornaments then and, you guessed it, the other "Our First Christmas Together" ornament! It was only up a few days, so I had to buy another tree and re-do the entire process! This time, I kept the acrylic sleeve and replaced the shattered ball! Its not the same, but better than nothing!

    I did not have any luck with a tree topper this weekend but I did pick up a few more ornaments:



    not a very nice picture of the poor owl lol




    I picked these ornaments up from Homesense. The crystal snowflake was really nice but there was only one left. I would have bought more of them.

    I also picked up a few more ornaments from some other stores on Sunday.



    The freak and the tree







    Jeannette and I were going through the bins and I found a bin full of ornaments for the crystal tree lol so it appears that I am going to have a few more hours of work before that darn tree is finally finished.

    Jeannette and I also put up 3 more trees including the infamous Black tree which brings the count to 5 trees over 6'. We have 2 more trees to go. One is a 5 foot blue theme tree and the final one which does not really count as a tree as it is 2' tall will be my Star Wars tree.

    More pictures of the other trees and decorations to come later on today.

    Looks Great!!

    I actually thought of you today when I was in Macy's. They had some clear glass bird ornaments and I thought "Crazy Mike would love these!". It was kind of weird since I've never met you. The only other time I've done that was when I saw a Jim Shore Nativity set and thought of Marhsmallow world. Now here's where it gets freaky. I used to live in Toronto, and Marshmallow world used to live in DC. Cue Twilight zone music!
