Thanksgiving was late in the month this year and we will busy through out the week of Christmas with John's family. So we aren't doing a tree this year. It's kind of weird but also kind of nice. I put some Christmas decorations up around the house and our window wreaths are up. I also put greenery in the pots on the front porch. Stockings and garland are hung as well. The most important things aren't things- it's family. And being with them is what really matters.
