Technically, according to Amanda, it was actually time to decorate about 3 weeks ago! But I held her off (sort of) until the week before Thanksgiving. Then over Thanksgiving Weekend, we went out and got our Christmas Tree. What an adventure that turned out to be! We had alot of fun going to a tree farm, walking around and picking out the "perfect" tree. We tied it on top of the car with twine - which turned out to be alot easier than I thought it would be. On the way home, Sam would stick her head out the window every once in awhile to make sure it wasn't flopping around....and it wasn't! We made it all the way home with it moving at all!! I was going to take a picture before we took the tree off the car and then I forgot! Anyway - that night we decorated it....which is my favorite part. I love looking at all the ornaments from previous years. The ones the girls have made are always my favorite.
