Getting in the Holiday Mood a Bit Early

We got a little crazy this year and put up our tree, decorations, and house lights before we left to go out of town for Thanksgiving. Maybe that makes us as bad as all the stores, but I just couldn't help it! I love seeing all the Christmas decorations and wanted to enjoy them as long as possible. Anyway, the kids had a great time putting up their ornaments. Here they are holding the new ornaments they picked out this year at Disneyland as their souveniers.
Finley was especially cute, because she got so excited by each ornament. Each time she would pull one out, she would exclaim about it, "Look! I got Winnie the Pooh!" and want to show everyone. Isaac, in typical fashion, put up a few of his ornaments, and then told me, "You can do the rest of mine." Not so into it, apparently. Sareny loved finding all of her old favorite ornaments and finding a special spot for them on the tree.
We also got a lovely new garland from Costco this year, that looked really gorgeous draped on our banister.
It's kind of fun having a railing for garland, and fireplace to hang stockings by. Sadly, December was really warm and we didn't get to use our fireplace too much, but it looked really pretty.
