But this year we broke tradition. Carl is head over heels for Christmas decorations. He has been begging me to put up our Christmas tree since November 1. I have declined his request, and told him we will wait until after Thanksgiving. He then asked for me to decorate as his "birthday present" on November 10. I also declined, as that was a busy weekend for us. I finally caved in to his begging (nagging? Yes, I will call it that. Ha!) last weekend. The weekend before Thanksgiving.
The strange thing about this year's decorating early was; I was ready! I was ready to pack my Fall decorations away, and for a change of scenery in our house. Fall is my favorite Season of the year, so it only makes sense that my Fall decorations are my favorite. But as I was digging through my Christmas totes, and now that our halls are decked---I feel like my Christmas decorations are giving my favorite Season's a run for their money.
Carson is to the age this year that he was interested in helping me decorate. It was so much fun for me to have a little helper. Then there is little W. Ohhhh, our dearest Weston. He has trouble written all over him---seriously. Our tree was not up for a total of 5 minutes, and our little busy body was tugging on a branch already! Carson showed absolute no interest in the Christmas tree---at any age....but Weston, on the other hand, is proving himself to be completely different.
I am going to have to thank my husband for the push to deck our halls a little earlier than normal this year. I sometimes forget what a great feeling it is to have a change of scenery in our home. And with the Holidays brings great joy to everyone.
Christmas decorating is in the books for the year, but we have a lot of fun to be had yet! I am looking forward to the many fun activities and events we have planned for this wonderful time of year.
