Going back to an old tradition, we put up our Christmas tree on the day after Thanksgiving. We haven't had a real tree in several years, and I couldn't bear to stand thinking about putting up our old fake tree (it was one that Kevin's grandparents left behind when they moved out of the house 11 years ago). We found a beautiful tree right away at Laphams, and Kevin had it in the stand and into the living room in a flash. This one area of the living room is the ONLY area that has any kind of decoration (there's not even furniture in the room yet), so it's kind of fun to be able to look in that direction and feel like it's homey. On another note, I couldn't bear to have Kevin put any screws or hooks into the new mantle for the stockings and he came up with a brilliant alternative. He wrapped 30lb fishing line around each of the two posts that hold the mantle. On each end of the fishing line is a snap swivle that the stocking is clipped to. I must admit, this was genius!
