It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

We have a family tradition to decorate for Christmas the weekend after Thanksgiving. You guessed it...that's what we have been doing at the Chapman's. Hudson and Kevin decorated outside today placing the spotlights and wreaths in the right place (so much easier than lights and classier if you ask me!) We got this idea from driving around in the in-law's neighborhood in TN. Everyone had spotlights and wreaths and it looked simply beautiful to me so we have been doing it ever since. Hudson is such a big help this year with decorating the tree. He would have decorated the whole thing, but I had to help so the ornaments were evenly placed!
Little pants helped too, although she wanted to take the ornaments off rather than place them on the tree. We are going to have a looooong holiday season in this house!

This morning we had a special part in the first Sunday of Advent service. So of course we had to all be color coordinated (I know I am don't have to remind me!) I made Avery that cute ribbon pin on her coat. It was so easy and is perfect if you have scrap ribbon.

Here's to kicking off the holiday season!
