If you haven’t already, today would be a good day to put up the Christmas tree! Once the tree is up, the Christmas spirit spreads like crazy. Let the festivities begin! Oh, and don’t forget the Christmas music!

And don’t forget the outside! String lights around windows, eaves, doorways, bushes, trees…the more the merrier! After the lights are up drink hot chocolate together to warm your hands and insides.

We always put up the Christmas tree at the beginning of December also. It really gets us in the Christmas spirit. We have an entire Christmas village too (even though it is overrun with army guys and dragons right now…boys are fun!) One of our traditions every year is to buy a special ornament to put on the tree too. It is so fun when we are putting up the tree to put those ornaments up and remember each year that the ornament signifies.

I love this time of year, and I love decorating the Christmas tree!!! This was my first year doing a shabby chic tree and getting the tree flocked, too. It came out even better than I expected!!! If I had a camera I’d take photos to share here, but I don’t. Oh well, I’m looking at the tree right now, all lit up with the only other light coming from my computer screen. It’s beautiful, and yes, I definitely had the Christmas music in the background when my family decorated!! That’s a must. :-)

Thanks so much!!
