Decked the Halls

As is becoming our family tradition the weekend before Thanksgiving, we put out our Christmas decorations this weekend.  Matthew had a great time 'helping' us string the lights outside.  Saturday night, as Alyssa and I walked in from a birthday party, her first words were "magical".  And Sunday morning, you would have thought it was Christmas morning, as Alyssa and Jackson were over the moon. They looked at the Christmas books we had stored away since last year.  They sung with all of the singing Christmas toys (thanks Mom).  They watched Muppet Family Christmas (one of my favorites) and Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas (one of their favorites).  We aren't forgoing Thanksgiving (we LOVE Thanksgiving), but we are just maximizing the time we have for the joy that Christmas time brings our family.  Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!

Matthew was enamored with the decorations.
