Deocrating the Tree
We pulled out our Christmas decorations the day before Thanksgiving. Sounds odd, I know. Matt took the day off and smoked 2 pork butts for us to eat the next day, and we were all home with nothing we had to do... so it was our chance to decorate :) I like to enjoy things for the entire month of December. The kids absolutely loved helping and I let them hang ornaments on the tree. While it was a tad frustrating and the control freak in me wanted things to be perfect, it was fun to have them help and enjoy it :)
Don't mind her uncombed hair :) Just keepin' it real here.
The kids have been loving the Christmas books (which are only set out at Christmas time). They love to sit next to the tree and "read" them. So cute :)
