At the tail end of November, I put up our mitten advent calendar and worked on filling the mittens with different activities and prompts for the kids. This is our second year doing the advent and we're super excited for our month long fun!
December 1st, Day 1: Deck the halls and decorate the tree!
We love decorating the tree with the kids! It's a process, as it always is with children, but ohh how awesome it is to see the kids so excited! Deciding which ornament is their favorite (it changes multiple times) and picking the perfect spot on the tree for it (they always seem to get clustered in one area) always make us laugh. The good ones go up high! This is our first Christmas having cats in the house and they're already driving me nuts. Though I must admit, I'm loving the photo I got of Oreo napping under the tree.
After getting the tree decorated, we got to work decorating the house. We have 8 Santas. 8. That's not including all the other Santa things we have....like plates, ornaments, and little odds and ends. You think Sam is a little obsessed? LOL
I love our home at Christmas time!
