All Decked Out

We are starting a whole slew of new traditions this year. 

Sunday night we did one that I hope will be recreated every year.  It was the most perfect night and I loved every second of it.  I am now full on in the Christmas Spirit!

Usually I'm the one that comes up with our traditions and then I make Andrew participate.  But this one was all him!

We decided to set an entire afternoon and evening aside and decorate the tree and the house and bake cookies and have hot cocoa.

Josie was counting down the seconds until we could start and when we decided to let her skip her nap she was even more excited!

So we blared the Christmas music and got to work.  The night was perfectly Christmassy!

Pure Magic.

Our star did the same thing when we put it on top!
