Because One Wasn't Enough

Here's our Christmas Tree.















And because I could be classified as criminally insane, here's the second tree that is on our upstairs landing.















And since I tend to overdo everything, I'm going to be appearing pretty sparsely the rest of the week while I get ready to host a Christmas party on Saturday. My motivation to get everything done ahead of time is a friend's party on Friday night. I need a little Christmas cheer too, ifyaknowwhatimsayin...

Beautiful trees. I especially like the one downstairs.

Dr. Wifey said...

Deanna said...

LOVE them both! I checked on hopping on a plane... whew! Major bucks. But what I wouldn't give to hop a plane and come up and help you. I would be happy to play with midget and help you this week. Although I have a feeling we wouldn't get a THING done... except get in trouble.

Oh so beautiful!!!! I love the ribbon hanging vertical like that on the top tree. Very nice!!!!

LadyStyx said...

Very pretty! My best bud usually puts 3 up, one on each level of her home. One is sparsely decorated with nothing but lights and garland...in the beginning. By the time Christmas is here, it's fully decorated. It takes time because this is the tree that she puts on it the Christmas cards received that year.

I gave up on the two-tree thing a couple of years ago, because I can barely make it through one tree with my mind still intact! (four kids "helping", lights never working...'nuff said.)

Your trees are GORGEOUS though ~ next year, why don't you stop over here is Amish Country and you can decorate mine too. 'Kay?? ;)

Is this where I out myself on having 6 trees? Yes. Six. I have a serious problem.

LOVING this music, too, Carrie. When are we going to hear YOU singing opera, by the way?

Pretty trees! Have fun throwing your Christmas party! Sounds like a lot of work but I bet it will be FUN!

Teresa R said...

You are criminally insane, but isn't that we love you? Sounds like some of your readers are even more insane...LOL!

Have fun this week!

You are so funny. If i had another floor, or even more floor space I would have another tree! Or 3 or 4!
You should have wreaths and garlands and all that too all over the house! Decorate until you are sick of it! How else are you supposed to go Christmas crazy??

Biltmore Estate has so many Christmas Trees this year and you've got only 2, that I say ain't too bad! :) Glad to be back here. I haven't been here for the longest time! Thank you for visiting my blog- sorry it took me this long to visit you back :)

Aubrey said...

How do you multi-tree mommies do it?!? I was tired after just decorating ONE. LOL

annaliese said...

beautiful trees, Carrie! I think those with a flair for Christmas decor should put up as much of it as they like...and from the other comments here, it doesn't sound like 2 is excessive at all :) Merry Christmas!

Cairo Typ0 said...

Two trees?! I'm so jealous!! We no longer put trees up because we travel during the holidays. I miss decorating for the holidays.

Rebecca said...

Cute! I've always thought it would be fun to do a less traditional tree but haven't yet. With the white tree, walls, angel & railing your picture looks like a b&w with the red pulled through, neat looking. Have a great week! Hope your parties are fun =]

Brandy said...

Insane is an accurate description but the trees are beautiful.

Amy from Texas said...

You go girl! White is the new green. Wait or is it pink? I'm seeing a lot of pink trees lately.

CynthiaK said...

Wow, great tree! SHeesh! I wish mine looked like that!

Thanks for visiting Crumbs last week...I'm just now catching up on my SITS holiday visits! Delayed or what?!

Julia said...

You are nuts, lady...

Michaela said...

Oh I like your trees! Especially the one downstairs :)

We are THAT Family said...

Your first tree is gorgeous and your second reminds me of the flocked ones we used to get as kids!
