It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!

It's our family tradition to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving so we can maximize our enjoyment of the tree and lights. So on the 29th we set out to decorate our tree and mantle. (Yes, we have a little tree -- which worked really well when we had a little house, but I think we will have to upgrade at some point.)

After we finished decorating, we watched 101 Dalmatians (the cartoon version) and then we started a new tradition . . . we had a family sleepover in the living room!
Here's Daddy with his boy . . .
. . . and his girl!
Then when we got up on Saturday morning, we went out for breakfast, where we gave the kids the ornaments we had selected for them and talked about why we chose those particular ornaments. Both kids decided that we should do this every year (and Mommy and Daddy agree)!
