Love this thread! I love to see everyone's trees!
Here is mine - finally gave in and went fake, pre-lighted. But with a 12' tree it would take me 1 full day for lights and 2 more for decorations, forget about the watering issue! So I miss my "real" tree, but the ease of the fake far makes up for it!
With the bow on top it comes out to around 13' now. I do mostly glass, so it is kind of a theme, I figure if my tree ever fell (again - fell 2 years ago - very lucky to only lose 2 ornaments) I'd loose over $1,200 in Radko Ornaments - I buy them off eBay or on sale, have been for over 10 years now. And of course the kids have ornaments they have made over the years - we buy a new one each year with the date and one for each kid as well. I guess I go overboard on the ornaments - that was another reason to go fake, very tough putting that many ornaments on real branches.
