We always celebrate big at Christmas with lots of decorations. But this year with Anna staying with us we have decided to pull out all the stops. With that being said, we needed to get started before we got past Thanksgiving. Since our house looks like the Mayflower exploded in it ... we do not pull out the Christmas decorations until the dishes are cleared from our Thanksgiving meal. But Regina and I have emptied the attic into the upstairs room and it is full of all things Christmas ... its prepped and ready to go on Friday morning. Kaden and I started with the Christmas lights on the fence then the rest of the family helped out and we got the first of many Christmas decorating tasks completed! HoHoHo!
