Getting Ready for the Holidays!

My little reindeer
I have always had a "rule" that you cannot take out Christmas decorations or put up the tree prior to Thanksgiving. Well, I changed my mind this year. As Ryder started to recognize all the Christmas decorations in store and neighboring houses, he questioned where our Christmas stuff was! Then my Aunt Mary mailed us some new Christmas ornaments and Ryder begged for the tree to go up. Soooo... early Sunday morning we pulled everything from storage and put the tree together! A full 5 days before Thanksgiving. I cannot beleive I did that!

Ryder playing Scrabble (or at least what he thinks is playing it!):
