It's November 28, 2011 and my home is Santa-ready!  This is just the first of four trees that go up in my home each holiday season.  And if my husband doesn't stand in my way, I'll be adding a fifth (well come on, the options are ENDLESS)!  This is my 'traditional' tree.  A hodge podge of collected treasures.  Each year my husband and I choose a custom-made ornament, so my favorite on this tree would be last year's 'front door' ornament, which marked our first Christmas in our new home.  The branches here are filled with representations from some of our favorite things in life.  There are several sports ornaments for favorite teams, lots of dramatic shots of Scarlett O'Hara from 'Gone With The Wind' and lots of 'Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer' scene recreations, like our friend from the 'land of misfits'.
