Christmas Decorating

It has been a long tradition in this family to start decorating the day after Thanksgiving. We always start by purchasing our Christmas tree. The tree is a "BIG" deal to my husband. There are a few rules: 1) It has to be a real tree 2) The bigger the better. It's heresy to even consider a "fake" tree. It's not just my husband...his dad... brothers....everyone feels this way. Honestly, I find it endearing that he is so passionate about the tree every year. This year he had to reconsider rule #2 because we moved to a new house that does not have tall ceilings. He was a little first...until we got home and he realized that he did not have to take out the huge latter to decorate it :)
This is what Corban did before I took the picture above:

This one is probably my favorite...Corban is mesmerized by the lights: Kaylee pointing at the star:

The night ended with Kaylee and Daddy watching the fire:
