We started the day at the church re-stringing the lights on the garland for tomorrow's Hanging of the Green production. It was quite a mess, but with the help of some of the students, we were able to get it done in a couple of hours. We then all headed out for lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant- Little Rosie's.
We finally began decorating for Christmas today. Oh how I am LOVING decorating our new house! I got the mantle almost finished and we put together the 4 ft & 6.5 ft trees. We are opting to decorate them later this week. We decided to run to Home Depot to look at getting some lights and othe misc. items. We came out with a beautiful 9 ft 1 in real Christmas tree. It's SOOOO beautiful and smells SOOOOO good. We got a great deal on it too. Originally, I wanted the experience of going to the Christmas tree farm and cutting one ourselves, but time was just getting away from us and it wasn't looking like it was happening. The trees at Home Depot were already cut and ready to go. We were able to get it in the trunk of Matt's car with the seats folded down & the trunk partially open. :)

Definitely a 9 foot tree!
Our favorite moment of the day was driving home from lunch when we looked in the truck next to us and found Santa & Mrs. Claus. Santa was chatting away on his cell phone. He looked just like every picture of Santa we'd ever seen. We must have been staring too long, because he turned and gave us a glaring look. Hope that doesn't mean we get coal for Christmas this year!
