Decking the Halls

Our new tree is out of the box, decorated and dazzling!  Seriously though, we couldn't be more thrilled.  We went with a bargain-priced internet-only tree from a national home improvement store (free shipping) after our in-person shopping was a bit of a bust.  I was so apprehensive, but the tree is really nice...a little thinner than our old one, but super tall (and having the lights on already was really nice).

Decorating was a family effort and everything went smoothly until we got to the star.  All three of them wanted to put that star up and everyone had a reason as to why they were worthy of the honor.  We told them we needed to think about it overnight and when they got up the next day...someone had already done the job for them!

This weekend also brought a visit to our village tree lighting, some gift crafting and shopping for our giving tree gifts.  In full disclosure, we also spent a good amount of time removing cabinet hardware & doors and working with Jack on his science presentation prep, but overall this weekend was about building Christmas spirit.  I'd say we're ready for St. Nick to pop by tonight!
