We are ready for Christmas!

Our week after Thanksgiving this year will be crazy busy with much of it spent for Sean and I in New York City. We knew that if we didn't set up the Christmas tree before Thanksgiving this year, it wouldn't go up until mid December. So last night was the night! We got all the decorations out and set up and decorated the tree!

Tate was SO EXCITED! Each year we do this gets more and more fun!

He wanted to put the angel on the tree this year...

And he carried this ornament around for about 45 minutes before we were ready to start decorating the tree. He said, "I want this to be the FIRST ornament that goes on the tree and I want to hang it up all by myself!" Okay, no problem!

He took the job very seriously...

So proud...

And I have to admit, he chose an excellent first ornament!

We have trained him well! :)

Then we put the other ornaments on. This year, we didn't put all of our ornaments on. We stuck with only bulbs and a few others (like the Hawkeye ornaments we get Tate each year).

We listened to Christmas music and hung the wreath on our front door too.

We are ready for Christmas now...just in time for Thanksgiving! :)
