So Christmas is a big deal in our house, we love decorating the living room and the tree, every year we try to find a new ornament for the tree, this year we settled on the house from disneys 'UP' a family favourite of ours, here it is on the left, to the right is a star wars ornament my wife added as a surprise for me


they are only small but packed with detail, very impressed with both of them, anyone else decorate with new items?

    Must admit we usually buy the odd one or two every year, although we do have decs that the kids made at school over 30 years ago.

    Hi @Grinchy

    Thanks for your post. It made my day to see. You included two of my favourite things - Disney and Christmas! The question is, have you or anyone else put the Christmas tree up yet?  :D

    Senior management won't have the tree up until ten days before Christmas since the kids grew up and left home  :) and it comes down on new years day.

    I thought people buying pumpkins last weekend were a little premature, I can't imagine anyone has a tree up yet! :D

    Thanks @Tori_Scope and @L_Volunteer those first few moments of UP when we see them both grow old together without any dialogue, says so much,without having to say anything, if you get what i mean, i just love it

    When my children were young ( 25yrs ago) I bought a limited edition set approximately 30  Disney themed Xmas tree ornaments. From Compton & Woodhouse.Haven’t been used for a long time. I’m still hoping for some grandchildren one day.
       They are all still in their original separate boxes. I have looked on eBay many times to see how much they are worth but can only find the smaller versions.
    Also what does annoy me is that I’m finding it it so hard to get some nice nativity figurines.
    mine need replacing.

    Yes, you're exactly right @Grinchy :) I think that's what makes it even more emotional.

    The Disney set sounds good @lillybelle! Worth holding onto if you think grandchildren might be on the cards. I'm not sure on a suggestion for nativity figurines. Have you looked at the company who made the ones you currently have?

    @Tori_Scope, yes its a great movie, if your able watch the pixar short 'feast' it again has little dialogue but is very heartwarming
    i hope you find a nativity set @lillybelle, we bought a new set from ebay last year, only small but does the job, your disney themed ornaments sound great, would love to see them
