Our 12 foot tree is up and beautiful! We actually put it up two weeks before Thanksgiving this year which is not normal for us. We are usually very traditional and stick with decorating for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. But this year we were going to be in Utah the weekend before Thanksgiving and the week of, and we wouldn't be home until the Sunday after Thanksgiving. So we decided to decorate before we left so when we got home it would be done and we wouldn't have to worry about it.
It was kind of weird to be decorated before Thanksgiving, but oh so nice to come home after Thanksgiving and have the house and tree all ready to go. Love Christmas trees. They just make me happy to see them!
