On to the next holiday

The weekend after Thanksgiving we had a little holiday change-up. I’m very strict about not putting one holiday up before the current one is over (i.e. Christmas decor before Thanksgiving), so we decorated the weekend after Thanksgiving. I was eager to get it up early since we’ll be leaving town for Christmas pretty early this year (me on the 15th, and Phil on the 17th). 
The artificial tree looks so sad and pathetic when you set it up, but it cleans up nicely with lights and ornaments. Even Margo likes it. 
Our Christmas cards are also on their way right now. I was a little unsure about sending Christmas cards, but I decided to send them with a picture and update from us. I think they’re so cute. Here’s the front:


  1. Love the cards! Who needs kids?
