I usually wait until after Thanksgiving to put up Christmas decorations, but Thanksgiving came so late this year, that I decided to do it the weekend before. I felt a little silly putting up the tree before we’d even cooked a turkey, but I’m glad we did it this way. There was plenty to do between the two holidays, and we needed the head-start.
The boys were actually a big help decorating the tree this year. Even Silas chipped in, and much to my delight, he didn’t bother the ornaments or stockings.

Here are a few more random shots from that weekend.
