We opted out of going and cutting down our own family tree this year. Although we still made it a family event. I think this was the first year that I actually did not put on a single ornament. Eric and the boys worked on it as I set other Christmas decorations in place.
I just love this month! The sound of jingle bells, the scent of cinnamon, the warmth of a fireplace, the shinning lights, wonderful family time, and BEST of all, the Perfect gift given for us to embrace.
