"If you want a thing well done, do it yourself."

We finally put our tree up (last night)! :)

Micheal got the tree out of the garage last night and put the lights on it. I got out the ornaments and was excited to get them on when I realized.. We have no hooks! Darnit.. Not much you can do about that at 9:30 at night (aside from going out for some, which I was not willing to do..ha!). So, today I went and got the hooks and the girls and I decorated. Definitely could not have done the ribbon without Abby! She stood on one side of the tree and I was on the other and we got it done. She was so excited to help, too! :)

I wasn’t too sure about the ribbon at first, but it is growing on me. :)

So now that the tree is up and decorated, all I have to do is start (and finish) shopping, take pictures for family members and bake until I can’t bake anymore! ;) Ha..What do you still have to do before Christmas?
