I love Thanksgiving.
I also love the day after Thanksgiving, because that's when it's officially acceptable to start obsessing about Christmas! yay!! I'd like to say that we set up our Christmas decorations on Friday, but truthfully, we set it up a couple of weeks ago. I was trying to hide it from everyone, turning the lights off before it gets dark so that people couldn't see them through the window from the streets. :O) It was kind of fun knowing that I was living a secret life of holly jolliness. Heh heh heh...
But now it's after Thanksgiving and all bets are off, so they lights are staying on. I thought I'd share a few photos from the evening that we set everything up. It's one of my favorite family traditions that we have. We make sure that we're all there, we put on Christmas music and drink hot chocolate (the dairy free, agave nectar kind) and bring out all the sparklies! Our christmas decor is pretty traditional, mostly golds, whites and silvers. I like Christmas to look fancy like that. Although I have to admit, when I see all the trendy Christmas trees and home decor that some of the bloggers out there are doing, I get so excited! I love the hipster Christmas. (I'm just not sure I want it in all my photos years later...)
Anyway. Have you decorated yet? Are you planning too?
Have a great weekend! I hope your stomach is recovering nicely from turkey day. :o)
P.S. Did you go shopping on Friday? The only store we have in town for black friday shopping is Walmart. (boo) It was a hut house, you guys. Nut. House. We didn't really get anything, we just like walking around and getting excited about Christmas. :o) It was kinda fun.
