We have five full size Christmas trees in our house. (See, I told you I loved trees.) Now, I have to be honest ~ Eric and I decorated zero of them. Our good friend, Carol, is an excellent floral and interior designer.

To round out my tour of trees is the one in our bedroom. I love laying in bed at night with all the lights out except the Christmas tree. This is the tree that holds all the special ornaments we have acquired over the years like Ian's first Christmas ornament, an ornament given to me by my friend Jenny to celebrate our first year of marriage, and a special blogging ornament from my friend Tracy.
