That's right. Our Christmas tree is up before Thanksgiving. Not that long ago, I would have said that's an abomination. But Thanksgiving weekend has gotten busy enough and I'd rather just relax (plus we're usually out of town). So the past two years, we've done it the weekend before Thanksgiving. And I like it.
The girls "helped" this year - Ri more so than Kaylee. I'm sure there will be several times when we will have to remind Kaylee that the ornaments are not toys (at least they're not fragile).
Notice that most of the ornaments are on the same branch. We are gonna leave it that way. :)
My prayer is that our girls will come to realize what's truly important during this season: Christ and His sacrifice for us - and that it really is better to give than to receive.
