As is our annual tradition, mom and I left at 5AM for a full day of shopping the day after Thanksgiving. We refuse to shop on Thanksgiving with the mad house of people. Ever since stores have opened on Thanksgiving, our shopping at 6AM the day after has been less crowded and is so nice. We finished most of our shopping and arrived back home that evening around 9:30 with a car full.
The next Saturday we took off to get our tree before we left for Disney the next day. I wanted to get it up before we left so it would all be done – so glad we did.
This is always a big deal picking out our tree – it has to be the perfect tree.
They thought these skinny ones were funny - just haven't been cut open.
We found our tree.
Now getting it in the house and up sure was fun. It might have been a little tall, but it was a perfect tree.
Time to decorate. The boys were so excited to help. Thankfully nothing was broken.
The start of December brought out Dash our elf. The boys were very excited to have their elf back. No telling what all Dash will get into this year.
