Chistmas in November:)

Well, last night we caved. We put our Christmas tree up. We were sitting here bored, so we just decided to do it. While we always put it up early, I think this is the earliest ever!!!
I absolutely love Christmas!!! My family always goes all out with decorations. Since we didn't have a Christmas tree in Canada, we always put out a ton of decorations. We put the big lights (the ones that are on the Time Machine at Church now) around the windows and roofline of our house, hung tinsel with lights around every archway and doorway, replaced all our flowers with Christmas stuff, and set out all our Christmas nick-nacks.
I love opening each box, cause everything I pull out has some special meaning or memory. So far, all we have is our tree, but hopefully I'll be able to post some of the other stuff.
We do our tree very traditional. With multi coloured lights, icicles, ornaments, and these foil icicle things.
Here's some pics.

Here's one of the plastic icicles we put on. They look so pretty when the lights shine through them!!!

Every year we put these on. We have two for everyone in the family. One with their favourite Scripture verse, and one with their favourite song. The one below is my favourite Scripture.

Here are a few of my favourite ornaments (there's a bunch of other ones that I love too!!!). I love pulling out each one and remembering the story or person behind it.

Well, hope y'all have a very Merry Christmas!~!~!~!~
