Today I had a great helper in putting up the Christmas tree! I am thankful that Melanie was so into decorating the tree this year - it gave me time to get some of the other decorations up! I didn't get everything up yet, but at least the tree is done! I know, I know it's only November 23rd, but we're not going to be around too much over hte next few weeks, so it's good to get it done! Besides, this is my favorite holiday and I love to watch the twinkling lights in the dark!!! Sorry it''s a daylight picture, but if I don't post now, I probably won't get to it later in the evening!!!
