This is the first time in my life as far back as I can remember that our tree is up before Thanksgiving. I have always been a firm believer that Christmas follows Thanksgiving. We do not hurry through Thanksgiving. This is our family time and we really are very thankful for our blessings. So, I have the entire family amazed that our tree went up early. I am only home a week and I wanted Thanksgiving weekend to be family time spent together. I was worried I would spend more time with the decorations and tree trimming than my family. I can now say I am happy that Thanksgiving day will be spent enjoying family time.
I am happy with the tree even though I did not put on any of my favorite ornaments. My grandchildren will be playing with and taking apart the tree so no glass or keepsakes are on the tree this year.
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving.
