Let’s take a trip upstairs for a more detailed view of the trees.

[#11] Small tree in our daughter’s room full of her favorite things.
Pink (3 ft.) [#12] and Lilac (3 ft.) [#13] trees in our room with clear lights, gold and silver ornaments respectively.
[#14] Coming back downstairs we have the gold tree with clear lights. This tree has a lot of ornaments with fur.
In photos, it is easier to see ornaments on this one without the lights.
The other side of the gold tree unlit.
[#15] Black tree (4 ft.) with clear lights and Star Wars ornaments. This one usually lives in my office, but is vacationing at home with us this year.
[#16] Into the family room, we find the 3.5 ft Candy Cane tree with green ornaments.
[#17] This is a 7 ft. white tree with red and green lights. It has red and green ornaments
Closer view of the ornaments on this tree. The Strawberry Shortcake ornaments you can see in this photo smell like the dolls used to. It is very powerful when you get close to the tree.
Other closeup of the ornaments.
[#18] White tree (3 ft.) with clear lights and penguin ornaments.
[#19] Rainbow tree (7 ft.) with coordinating colored ornaments.
[#20] What one could call our “main tree”, the one the presents go under for Christmas morning is a 7 ft blue spruce with teal, purple, and white lights. This also is the ornament color scheme.
In this closeup view, there is a Santa ornament in the lower left that once bought (15 or so years ago) served as the entire inspiration for the color scheme and theme of the tree.
Closeup view of the other side of the tree.
Moving into the dining room, we have the 4 ft red with red lights which is a Buffalo Bills tree [#21]. Next to it is a 4 ft turquoise tree with clear lights that is ornaments that represent our son [#22].
Shifting over some more, we find the 4 ft light turquoise tree with blue lights, which has been called our snowflake tree for years [#23]. Next up is a 2 ft. turquoise tree with Sesame Street ornaments [#24].
Up on the table is the mini Wizard of Oz [#25], the 12 Days of Christmas tree [#26], and a mini tree with mini ornaments [#27].
[#28] Our first Christmas tree is a 7 ft green tree that is currently the only large unlit tree we still have. We string multi-color lights for this tree which has many of our favorite Disney friends and other characters.
A view of the same tree from the other side.
[#29] This is a silver tinsel tree (5 ft.) clear lights. It has become the Beauty & the Beast tree.
