Oh Christmas Tree

We have a wonderful christmas tree family tradition. We usually go to get our tree the Sunday after Thanksgiving (had to be delayed until Monday this year bc of a little throw up bug). We stop and get egg nog then come home, put on Willie Nelson Christmas drink our egg nog and decorate the tree! This year Ella stayed for all of the decorating. I think we put up all the decorations in record time this year (one time through Willie Nelson Christmas and two times through Bing Crosby's Christmas). I think it is because we did not have many strands of lights and we were not going back out to the store. I have been known to put 20 strands on the tree. This year I think it was only 8 or 9.

Miller was not left out of all the festivities, he and Ella had a good game of chase/wrestle in christmas pj's.

Cheers!

Oh, Ella loves Egg Nog!

Ella did a great job putting on the ornaments this year. Although she kept wanting to put them on and then take them off again.
