Decking the Halls + Cherry Christmas Braid

Normally, Collin makes me wait until closer to Thanksgiving to put up our tree and decorate for Christmas. But, this year we are going to be taking a little trip around Thanksgiving so my wonderful hubby compromised!

We spent Monday (Collin’s new day off), decking the halls! We have a tradition of staying in our jammies, getting the house all decorated, eating a yummy dinner, then I make a Cherry Christmas Braid for dessert! So much fun! Of course I got some pictures to share with you all!

We recreated some pictures we took last year and boy did it put things in perspective. Time flies!

Next year when we decorate we will have a 9 month old and an almost three year old! Crazy!
