Getting ready for Christmas

We have a tradition here that the weekend after Thanksgiving, we put up the Christmas tree. Since I was off work and Emily didn't have school, today was the day. The tree is now up and the living room is decorated. We don't really do much, but we did do a few more things this year than normal.


One of my favorite decorations is this set of Santa wooden spools. I really love them! :0)


And to reward ourselves for a job well done, Emily and I went to the movies tonight and saw Mockingjay. We loved it and can't wait for the next movie in the series to come out, in November of 2015. We're marking our calendar now! LOL

  4. I gave my tree to my Mom - she can't find hers - and I don't set it up anymore. I plan to get to my mantel (only decor) this weekend. I do adore your spool Santas.
