I've been doing a bit of holiday decorating around our home. Since we'll be spending the entire season here in Portland I was so excited to get a real Christmas tree. We bought ours down the street and the boy carried it the whole way home. Luckily it's only about 5 feet tall. It lived in a bucket in our dining room for a day until we could get a tree stand. Sunday evening I made dinner and cookies and we drank egg nog, listened to Christmas carols and decorated our tree. It was the perfect holiday activity. I'm so excited for Christmas now!
