Delicious, warm and toasty........
And ended with the house fully decorated for Christmas.
I know what your thinking. Because I thought the exact same thing. But I have an honest excuse.
I thought Thanksgiving was a week earlier than it actually is and I told the kids we could put up the tree the week before Thanksgiving. Since we are hosting a dinner, I wanted to have the house decorated and done with so that I could focus on cleaning and cooking.
When I realized I was wrong (and my husband was right, of course) my children were heartbroken and didn't really accept my excuse.
They said, "But Mom, we've put up our tree on November 1st before!" (And they are right about that.)
So...I gave in. And now I have a nicely decorated home for the holidays and a happy family.
