The holiday season has begun! Have you put up a Christmas tree yet? We put our tree up every year on the weekend after Thanksgiving and decorating becomes a family affair. My husband assembles our huge pre-lit tree and the boys and I decorate it. It’s one of my favorite family days out of the whole year!
