Thanksmas!

We were planning on surprising my Granny with a visit the week of Thanksgiving. I like to get my tree up as soon as possible and 4 days after Thanksgiving (when we would get back) was too late for me.

I also am never opposed to getting things done ahead of time these days.

So, on a Saturday morning early in November, we put our tree up.

The kids were very into it and loved helping.

They even had to help fix the chord underneath…Of course, I had to get Greer out of his seat because he wanted to help too!christmas 022

At this point, everyone napped while I put the finishing touches on! Of course you have your avid Thanksmas decorators and your serious about “only after Thanksgiving” decorators! I am no set on either, just whatever works each year. I do have to say that I enjoy having the decorations out for a good while so I lean towards before Thanksgiving! Smile
