The Tree is Up!!

Actually the tree has been up since Thanksgiving weekend....I just haven't blogged about it. There really isn't much to say about it. Other than it's a family tradition. We put on some holiday tunes, maybe drink some hot chocolate while putting out the decorations.

I do have to say that we were very minimal with our decorations this year. Since we are selling out house we wanted it to be simple. So there aren't a ton of decorations out. One wreath on the door, one Christmas tree and 5 stockings. That's it. None of the cute decorations that are homemade by the boys- unless they are ornaments on the tree- and even those are few.

Some of us may have been videoing and picturing ourselves while decorating, but that's ok. It is something I want to remember for years to come. Cause Christmas is about enjoying time with your family right?

Now if only I could find the motivation to write out a Christmas letter!


  1. I love the picture of the boys laying under the tree. That's my favorite spot.

  2. The true spirit of Christmas...not all of the complexities but spending time together.
