Trimming the Tree

Every year we decorate our tree the day after Thanksgiving. We are very blessed this year to be able to buy a 7 1/2 foot tree. We had our 5 foot tree since we got married. Wow! The big one sure makes a difference. We let the kids decorate the entire tree this year again. I don't even care if it's not perfect because it is their art! Growing up my mom also let us kids decorate the tree every year. What a fun tradition!!

Last night at the store I bought ingredients to make gingerbread houses. We are going to start a new tradition this year of making them. I know Bryan's family made those growing up but we never followed suit until now.

Have a great day everyone! I have a lot to work on for Christmas presents. I got my Christmas cards ordered on Thursday so hopefully they will arrive next week so I can get them in the mail.
