I missed this thread earlier. Here's some pics of my Christmas tree I did this year upstairs in the hall outside the collection room. Sari and I disagree on what should go on the tree. So I did my own. I can't find the pics I had of our tree in the living room. It was nice but not comicey enough for me.

It was a green Christmas here this year, wet, foggy and about 6˚C (43˚F).  Quite a change from last year.

I put some cord on the christmas tree, so the cats wouldn't topple it again this year. Razz

Thank you for posting pics of your Christmas Paul and Clint :clap:


Your superhero tree is super cool Paul Cool


Love the Angel on top of your tree Clint Very Happy

Looks a little familiar to ours ...

I actually think they have been identical at 1st but my wife repainted ours and added the Halo - what are the odds of us having the same tree topper thinking

The lighted glass block present is really cool Very Happy

and I love the cat proofing you did to your tree lol!

Thanks James.

That tree topper is the one that the kids pick every year to put on top. Very Happy
Great minds think alike when picking out christmas ornaments. lol!   The tree topper is one that my wife had already when we met, so I can't take any credit for that one.  Did your wife pick the topper out???

My sister made the glass block ornament for us.  It's a standard glass block used for windows or walls.  She just drilled a hole in it, and put a small string of christmas lights inside.  Then put a ribbon and bow on it.  It looks great all lit up in the evening.Very Happy

As for the tree.  Our cats were just 5 & 9 months old last year and our tree didn't last 2 nights before they toppled it a couple of times.  So this year, I wasn't taking any chances.  My wife wasn't very impressed that I use just plain white chord.  But it did the job.  I've also kept a squirt bottle full of water near by and any time they decided to play around the tree, they got a squirt. lol!

Well our wives must have good taste because mine picked out or topper too cheers

I'm allowed Halloween but Julie is responsible for at least 90 % of our Christmas décor choices - if I was doing the picking our X-mas would be a bit darker ...

and these are the type of ornaments I pick out at Hallmark ...

I always go to Hallmark the day after Christmas to buy our ornaments - they are marked down 50 % cheers

The ornaments average regular price is usually - $15 to $20 so after x-mas you can get them for $8 to $10 each What a Face

If you guys don't have a Hallmark in your area I would be glad to go to ours and see if they have any of the cool ones left for you Very Happy

Just let me know which ones you want for sure and I will do my best Wink

I found this catalog online of what they had available this year :

http://www.hallmark.com/keepsake-ornaments/dream-book/

over 1/2 the stuff is pretty cheesey but they always put out at least a few cool ones Cool

Good news my fellow geeks :cool laugh:

I just got back from Hallmark and I bought 4 Frankenstein's and 2 Alien's (all they had left) .


The Frankie's were $15 - so after the 1/2 price discount and with sales tax they were only about $9 each

The Alien's were $18 -  so after the 1/2 price discount and with sales tax they were only about $11 each

They were sold out of the Cornelius POTA ornaments unfortunately ...

1 Frankie and 1 Alien goes to Andy for sure Stormie Smiley

1 Frankie to Paul (Kisstour) if he wants it What a Face


Still have 2 Frank and 1 Alien to go to a good home Cool


I highly recommend checking your local Hallmark store if you have one available , but , if you can't find them and still want one speak up and claim it Wink

All I want is the my cost for the ornament and shipping cheers

Unfortunately , although they are light , international shipping will still probably be $8 to $10 Mad

Top man James cheers Big thanks for helping the brothers out Very Happy :clap:

There is a small Hallmark card shop close to where I live, all it sell is cards and furry toys No

A tree is not a tree without a Frankinstien ornament on it What a Face

We have a lot of fun decorating for Christmas, especially my wife who goes crazy over snowmen.  This is just a few of them.

These are her grandfather's homemade reindeer plus a few more snowmen of course.
