Yesterday we put up the Christmas tree and decorations. Our Christmas tree here is pretty small and unimpressive. I think its only a 3 or so foot artificial tree. We never buy anything larger, because our situation here is not permanent. That's okay most of the time, but sometimes I think we use it as an excuse not to buy things that we would probably end up enjoying even if not permanently. Still, the kids had fun decorating, at least until they decided to play and let Tim and I finish.
Its nice that Tim and the kids have a 3 day weekend. The King's birthday was Saturday, so a lot of places are off on Monday. Her office is actually open on Monday because they were closed on Saturday which is a normal work day. Tim's taking Monday off anyway since the kids are off school.
