Trim up the Tree and all that stuff!

Just as we do every year, the day after Thanksgiving, we begin decorating for Christmas.  The tree is always the first to go up and the boys were a big help in fluffing the tree this year.

This really is my most favorite time of year and we have already crossed off a bunch of bucket list items; including lists to Santa, watching Christmas movies and going to the Christmas parade!  I am looking forward to adding to our list as well as continuing our other Christmas traditions!

Christmas lists for Santa!

I love the glow of our home when the Christmas tree is up and the garland is wrapped around the staircase!  And the outside decorations make the early darkness much more inviting!

Tree is up and decorated!
That night we accidentially found ourselves at the city tree lighting.  We had planned to get ice cream for dinner (since we had a big lunch) and realized when we saw the crowds what was happening!  After our ice cream treat we walked over to help with the count down and checking out the tree, before heading home!

Meeting my family at the Christmas parade is one of my favorite traditions!
