Some would even say it glows

Here are some pics of our Pink Christmas Tree* - it's FAB-u-lous!
It's hard to capture the color just right - it is really quite... something... to behold.
KTM said I should get a Barbie ornament, which, I already happen to have!  A Barbie Shoe Tree on my pink Barbie Tree?  Yes, please!

My mom had a great tradition of getting me and my brother and sister an ornament each year and writing our name and the year on it, when we left home she gave us our ornaments.  So I have a lot and some are (ahem) rather old.  M & I continue the tradition - these are our ornaments for this year.  I got him a cat because this year we were consumed with poor Kaya who was ill and thank goodness recovered, and he got me an Eiffel Tower because I love Paris.  Awwww...  We actually have so many ornaments we decided we'll just get one ornament for the family in the future.   Those snowflakes you see are wooden die-cut ornaments from my friend MZ.  They look perfect in pink.

My mom actually puts up THREE trees in her house which some may consider overboard, but... isn't that just about right?   I'm thinking about putting our green one in our bedroom, but so far have been too lazy. 

O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
Wie rosa sind deine Blätter!
Du grünst nicht nur zur Sommerzeit,
Nein, auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
Wie rosa sind deine Blätter!

I think a tree in your bedroom is a great idea! That would be beautiful.
