    I put up my first of 5 trees today. Plus my newest small tree. It is a Tinker Bell tree. It's lavender and 3ft tall, i did it myself it's not a tree ina box deal. The full size trees all have a theme. The 1st is a Disney Princess Tree pictured below. The other are a Pop Culture tree, a Victorian Tree (real tree), a hollywood tree (marilyn, Gone with the Wind, Wizard of Oz) and the last one is a Mickey and Friends tree. Any other Canucks as obsessed as my mom and I?

    Here is the next tree, it's the Hollywood Tree, and yes that's Belle on top! As you can see she matches the Burgandy and Gold colour scheme.

    Only 3 more to go, well that and everything else we do around here.

    Ooooh! That is very pretty. Can you post the others, too?

    I haven't started to decorate yet....have to get report cards done first.
    I noticed in the Brandy Tree flier yesterday a 4-tier moving Disney tree....for $249.99. I'm thinking that I'll just cut out the picture, blow it up, and put it in a corner. :rotfl:

    Wow that's beautiful. We haven't started yet. Of course I can see why you would need to get a head start if you have 5 trees to put up. Your home must look like a winter wonderland when you are done. Have you been buying all the ornaments individually over the years or as a package? If you don't mind me asking, do you have any idea how much you have spent so far on Disney ornaments? We have only bought 5 so far during the 4 trips my hubby and have taken together and I guess they have cost us about $100 all together. It's the only must have souvenior I insist on getting when we go.

    That's beautiful - make sure you post the others for us to see too.
    I have my Jim Shore Christmas Mickey's out and my small ceramic Christmas tree out. Will start getting more out little by little - real tree will go up the beginning of Deceber and the outside stuff will hopefully go up this weekend if I can convince dh.

    Since it's so beautiful here in the GTA this week, I'm going to have to get those Christmas lights out ... at least up, if not on before the big :cold: ;)

    My outdoor lights are up but not on yet. I'll probably put up my "Disney only" tree after next weekend.

    But you're inspiring me to get busy.

    Well they are a combination of MANY years of collecting. The majority are hallmark ornaments. My mom and I go on boxing day every year to get them 50% off. A few are from WDW, others are Disney Store ones from when I worked there and the rest are from Wal Mart, Zellers or Canadian Tire. I couldn't even guess how much I've spent on ornaments. It would be $1000's.

    Yes I was hoping to convince my dad to do it this weeke too but he too has report cards to do.

    I usually wait till after the Santa Claus Parade which is on the 15th in Brampton.

    And the weather is so nice today I can't even think about X'mas yet. (but I have started X'mas shopping.....)

    And yes, it would be a good time to put up those lights!!

    My Moms rule when I was little was Dec 1st. This Saturday was the Santa Claus Parade and i talked to my amazing wonderful mature DS6 and said buddy you just went trick or treating last night, Momma isnt really in the Christmas Spirit yet and hes said its ok Mom me neither.

    I think we'll prob set up around Dec 10th. 2 weeks of Xmas IMO and I love it is plenty for me..:)

    WOW! That is gorgeous. We usually put up our decorations on December 1st, but we are heading down to WDW then this year, so I don't know if we'll decorate first, or wait until we come back. I guess it depends on how much time we have. I would love to do a themed tree like that. I hope you'll post pictures of your other trees - or better yet, invite us all over to see them!!

    Hey, we're east of oshawa also....port hope.
    I still have my halloween lights up and would've taken them down and put up the christmas ones today but have a shoulder in a sling right now....hoping it's still warm for hubby to do it this weekend.
    I just said today, We're going to disney for christmas does this mean we can leave all the trees downstairs this year??? the kids both said NOOOOO.
    so I will be putting at least one tree up......after daughters birthday Dec. 2nd.
