We started our Christmas decorating the weekend after Thanksgiving, and put the tree up when Mom was here. Ella found the Santa hat we got her when she was a baby in one of the boxes and squeezed it on her head ...perfect fit :)

Decorating the tree
Setting up her nativity with Grammy
Steve put up lights out back by the pool and it looked so pretty between all the lights from the tree and the backyard lights!
And our lights out front
There is something so beautiful about Christmas lights - I love them so much, I wish we could leave them up all year long :)
