Our Tree is Up!

The kids just could not wait. And honestly, it seems like we just get the tree up, and then it is time to take it down. Plus, we are going home next week for Thanksgiving. The children and I are staying an additional week. So I'm glad we've gotten it done.

We had a great time together listening to Christmas music, and trimming the tree. Jordan and I put the tree together, and then afterwards Josh came to help Jordan decorate. I've got some pictures of them that I will post later.

Here is one shot I loved. This was taken after they trimmed the small tree in their bedroom. Oh, our trees are artificial...but we burn pine scented candles to give the Christmas Tree smell. Even Josh thought he was smelling a real tree. =) I do prefer real ones, but I got this pencil tree for my birthday, and it is working great for apartment living. ;)

That is the cutest picture!! So creative and adorable. I am going to put our tree up this weekend, too. I figure- I might as well. I like get it down ASAP after Xmas, so might as well get it up early and make the most of it!
