{Putting up the Christmas tree}

Every year, for as long as i can remember, my family has always put up the christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. When i got married, William & I kept that tradition! 
This year was really exciting for us, because we got to use our Ruffle christmas tree skirt that i made a while back :) & our little Giuliana could be here any day! So this holiday season is very exciting for us :) 
Almost all the ornaments & decorations on our tree have a special meaning to us. Every year, as we pull out the ornaments, we reminisce about where we got the ornament and where we were in life at the time. It is always a blast remembering :)! 

{Even Irwin is exited about Christmas this year!}
{Every year, i  make something for our tree. This year, i made the tree skirt. Last year i made the pom pom garland. The year before that i made the fabric garland.}

Do you have any special Christmas/Holiday Traditions??
