Elvis Tree (the video)


For several years now, it has been a tradition at our house to put up two trees, a normal one and my Elvis tree. This year I was able to introduce my daughter to the tradition and she loved it. So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen...

THE ELVIS TREE!

your daughter is adorable! what a great, eccentric family tradition to pass along - you can be sure she'll have fun memories of it!

Gotto love the Elvis tree. I'm sure this will be your best Christmas to date. There's nothing like experiencing it through the eyes of your children.

Wow, you let EM touch the sacred ornaments without even freaking out. I'm so proud of you!

It's GORGEOUS!

This year i decided to have a traditional tree and a "florida" tree ... complete with flamingo lights & ornaments, lizards, palm trees and flip-flops. i added some shells too .... for garland.

My son LOVES the Florida tree ... and that is the one I have in my house ... the traditional one is on the porch.

EM will ADORE having 2 trees!
I know I wish i had done it sooner!

Gypsy,
Elvis lives everywhere, but especially at Dizgraceland. Thanks!

Hayden,
Thanks, EM is the best gift we could have this holiday. But what do you mean "eccentric family tradition?" Don't you have an Elvis tree?

Shandi,
It gets better every year...well...eventually I'm going to have to find a new artificial tree, but the sentiment gets better. Plus eBay continues to be a great supply of Elvis ornaments.

We are enjoying Christmas through EM's eyes, though. They are much brighter than mine :)

Kristy,
She was sneaky about touching the ornaments as you can see from the video. But she essentially calls the shots around dad.

Blazngfyre,
The Florida tree sounds great. I'm suprised Elvis didn't hang out in Florida. You should post a video.
