Look What We Did Tonight!

Every year I always feel that things are rushed around this time of the year. I feel that the most important activities get done just to get done. This year I have decided to try and make some changes so that this doesn't happen. We decided that tonight would be a good time to put up our Christmas tree even though it is not December 1st. The kids were so excited to put up the tree - they have been bugging me for a couple of weeks. I love how they get excited about doing these activities - their enthusiasm is addictive. They had so much fun putting on the decorations and listening to the Christmas songs. Avery said that this is the best time of year - being with family and doing things together. These traditions mean so much to the kids. I am always learning from them.

Okay I love white lights, much to the dismay of my kids. They want coloured lights. Maybe when these lights burn out. With over 1200 lights on my tree, I put it away with all the lights on. The white lights are not coming off until they burn out. Maybe next year guys!

Gorgeous tree Michelle!!!!!!!!!!!!
You're smart to put it up early...part of me wants to put ours up but the most part of me can't - it's been too nice outside and I just can't get into the tree decorating spirit yet! Love yours though!!
