For a couple of weeks now, The Big Sis has been begging us to put up the Christmas tree and all of the decorations. I generally hesitate to put them up too early — and outright refuse to do so before Thanksgiving — but we did agree to put the stuff up this weekend, mostly because we’ll be out of town next weekend when we’d be more likely to put it up. We didn’t get everything done, but we did get the tree up and mostly decorated and also bought some lights to put up outside (for the first time ever). I have to admit that I do enjoy looking over in the evenings and seeing the glow of the lights on the tree; it is instantly relaxing.
‘Tis the season!
