Treasure Hunt Thursday #87

Welcome to THT #87!  I hope that everybody had a fabulous Christmas enjoying time with family and friends!! I know I sure have enjoyed being with all three of my men and thus I have not paid too much attention to the computer this week. To be truthful it has been a nice break. I did however want to get THT up for those of you who wanted to come on over and party and aren't busy with holiday festivities!
Instead of sharing my top picks from last weeks party though today I am sharing one of my truest treasures!
This little guy turns 7 today!!! I have no idea where the time went because it seems just like yesterday he was this little.
Happy Birthday to my Littliest! Mommy cherishes every moment we get to spend together. 

Now on to the party!:)
 What would be a HUGE help and encourage more comments not just from me but others as well would be for everybody to take off their required verification codes for leaving a comment. This seems to take just a few seconds of time but when you have to do it on 30 or more blogs it takes up a TON of time. Last week most everybody had turned off their Word Verification which made it so much easier for me to stop by everybody's links! Thank you!
Now on to this weeks party! 
As with all parties there are the normal rules. You must link back to From My Front Porch To Yours in your THT POST. Just common courtesy. If ya don't link back ya don't get to party. Only link up to your Treasure Hunt Thursday post and NOT your blog homepage. Please No advertising and PLEASE NO MORE than 3 links from the SAME party goer. Also NO MORE linking up to your own link parties. I am seeing more and more link ups of just people promoting their own linky parties. I know it takes time to go back and make a separate post to join the party but it is just the polite thing to do. If you find your post deleted it is not because I am a meany, I just have to make sure the rules are being followed. You can save some of your posts for the following weeks party!Please only link up new posts and not posts that you linked up the week before.

Also be sure to visit at least the link before you and after you to just say Hi! It makes partying all the more fun and remember if your link has had the most visits you will get featured on Tuesdays! If you are new around here I would love it if ya become a follower!:)

Our Christmas Tree 2012

I know I am a little behind on sharing our tree this year and I apologize. I am having hard time getting pics this year for some reason. Anyways, here is our tree.
Normally it takes me about an hour to an hour and half to find the perfect tree. I drive my boys insane literally. This year was a record breaker though. In 15 minutes the perfect tree was tied to the top of Lucy and away we went. 
Our tree sat in the foyer for a day or two till I could get the furniture moved around.Then I moved it into the living room.
Mom says the secret to easily moving a Christmas tree from room to room is to place the tree holder on an old comforter. That makes it super easy to pull around the house if need be.
I wish this tree was a fake because I just love it to pieces. 
One of the reasons I love it so much is because it has the beginnings of little pine cones all over it. At least I think that is what they are. Either way they are cool. We have never had a tree with them before.
This year I retired our old star after 11 years because the lights kept going out. I was excited to have found this pretty one at Lowes.
I kept the decorations simple this year and did not use very many. As matter of fact Oldest kept asking me when we were going to decorate the tree!;)
Another new addition this year is our galvanized bucket. It is my solution to keeping the fur babies out of the tree water and then proceeding to barf on the tree skirt. It has worked like a charm! I can't wait till next year after the bucket has weathered some. 
I retired our old ribbon and used burlap ribbon for a more simple look. Next year I am wanting to add some gold beads.
This is The Hubster who was refusing to move from the sofa so I could take pics for y'all. I threatened to include him in the post and thus here he is!;) 
This is my view while washing dishes!

The kiddos are finally out for the holidays as well as The Hubster off of work so the next almost 3 weeks will be full of family time. I hope that everybody is enjoying their holiday season thus far!
Thanx for stopping by!
