Good morning to youuuuu!
I hope your weekend was a great one! Ours was a pretty festive one if I do say so myself. Christmas shopping? Check. Decorating for Christmas? Check. Hanging Christmas lights? Check. Listening to lots of Christmas music? Check.
We usually try to decorate the weekend of Thanksgiving, but it just didn’t happen this year since we had family in town. Fortunately we were busy little elves this weekend and got most of our Christmas shopping done and all of our decorating finished!
Saturday morning began with a trip to Kneaders Bakery where we got egg sandwiches, coffee, and split a cinnamon roll. It definitely started our day out on the right note!
Afterward we hit up a few stores and crossed off several of the items on our family’s Christmas lists – woo hoo! The rest of the day was spent decking the halls! Cody worked on putting lights up outside while I decorated the inside, and then we spent the evening together hanging ornaments on the tree while rockin’ out to Trans Siberian Orchestra Holiday Pandora Radio.
Decorating for Christmas has always held a special meaning to me, particularly as I’ve gotten older. It brings back memories of growing up when we would listen to Christmas music and decorate the tree as a family, and it’s a tradition I’d like to continue as we have our own children.
Last week I was struggling to get in the “Christmas spirit”, but I’m already feeling it more now that we have our tree up and our house decorated. I love the holidays!
- When do you usually decorate for Christmas?
- Do/did you have any Christmas family traditions growing up?
