Deck the Halls!

Since we're planning (hoping and a praying!) to get to Kaz before Christmas, we have decided to move Christmas up a couple of weeks this year. We'll be celebrating on December 13th, making today the eleventh day of Advent! Needless to say, the boys are loving the idea of Early Christmas, especially because they're already almost halfway through their Lego advent calendars.

I have to admit, this is the first time we've gone Christmas tree shopping while wearing our pilgrim thanksgiving hats! The tree was purchased and erected on Wednesday, so we got to enjoy its majesty and piney smell during Thanksgiving dinner. The only problem with Early Christmas is the shortage of trees available the Wednesday before Thanksgiving - as usual we went to Sun River Gardens to get our tree and Steve bought this one sight unseen because most of them were still bundled up from the truck! Maybe we should make getting a mystery tree a tradition, Steve sure picked out a beautiful tree this year!

OK... sorry I have not been posting. I have been out of town and before that out of commission!
I hope you all had a WONDEFUl Thanksgiving. We all have so much to be thankful for this year.

Sestra's room is lovely. I love her bedding. I can't wait to get busy on Asher's room.

I hope you all have a great Christmas. Wahoo about maybe being in Kaz for Christmas. That will be a blast! So where will santa leave the gifts? IS he coming early too? If so do not tell April... LOL

I love your tree and the smell of pine is great. Though the clean up is not much fun. We go with two large artificial trees and little ones in the kids rooms.
I just light a lot of pine scent candles!!!
