I did WHAT??!!! on November 4????


I put up my Christmas tree. That's right. You heard me. Don't judge me Earl! Spencer has begged for a week to put up the tree-- it is very important to him this year. I pick and choose my battles and this one I decided not to push back-- if it was this important to him, then I could put the tree up a few weeks earlier than normal. He was SO EXCITED. He orchestrated the entire evening-- he picked out new ornaments, he chose dinner (Papa Johns Pizza), he invited the family over--- my little guy had already made up his mind and there was no stopping him!
I have always LOVED Christmas, so I am thrilled that he has inherited this appreciation for the season. Getting ready for bed tonight, he reminded me that we need to get book presents for him to win playing "hide the pickle ornament" and he wants to make Christmas cookies with me for my Mobile Meals route folks... he is really in the Spirit! I love this little guy so much-- he can make you totally decorate the house a month early--while you are still snacking on Halloween candy-- and actually feel good about it!

I LOVE it. It's never too early to get in the spirit. And time flies this time of year. Spencer may be starting a new trend!

You're so right in needing to pick your battle and letting this slide definately isn't going to do anyone any harm. I know heaps of girls that have their trees up already :) Enjoy your extended holiday season!
