Hi, friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Ours was really nice – lots of family, fun, and food! 🙂
As soon as Turkey Day was over, we were right into the “official” holiday season with all things Christmas. Of course, we couldn’t wait to get our Christmas tree. With Thanksgiving falling so late this year, we were MORE than ready! I actually think November 29th is the earliest we’ve ever gotten our tree – so much for our December 1st rule!
We shopped at our usual place, and Quinn picked out a beauty of a tree. It was actually one of the first ones he saw!
As always, before we left, we stopped to snap our annual family photo.
Back at home, we continued our “get a Christmas tree” tradition with Lime Leaf (for lunch) and decorating.
Decorating was a lot of fun – even more so now that Quinn is older. We had a great time reminiscing about ornaments and their memories from previous years with him.
After lunch and decorating, we picked out our activities for 24 Days of Togetherness. It officially starts tomorrow, so if you haven’t downloaded and printed your PDF, you can still get it here!
While selecting our slips of paper, we noticed that we had already completed some of our favorite 24 Days of Togetherness activities. Apparently, we were really excited to get a jumpstart on the holidays! So we pulled them out of our tin and decided to OFFICIALLY start picking activities on December 5th.
DAY 1: GET A CHRISTMAS TREE AND DECORATE IT
DAY 2: BUY A NEW CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENT
Mal and I made ornaments at the Pottery Playce a few weeks ago. Quinn made a lizard named “Lemon.”
DAY 3: BUY A HOLIDAY GIFT FOR YOUR PET
We bought Murphy a doggie advent calendar a few weeks ago at Trader Joe’s. I think I might be more excited to start it tomorrow than he is! 😉
DAY 4: VISIT SANTA CLAUS
Our town had a holiday bazaar a couple of weeks ago, so we stopped by to see Santa.
Question of the Day
Are you participating in 24 Days of Togetherness this year?
Lol we are also SO EXCITED to start the advent calendar tomorrow for our dog, Maple!!! I’m definitely the most excited!
