Hello! I hope everyone had a great weekend. We did a lot of cleaning, and preparing for Thanksgiving. I had to keep pushing away the urge to put the tree up. The Christmasy spirit feeling never hits me until after Thanksgiving, so it was kind of unexpected. There was no time to get the tree up, so I settled on some Christmas music. Maybe next year I will consider getting the tree up the weekend before Thanksgiving, instead of the weekend after. When do you put your tree up?
