the most wonderful time of the year is here! we decorated for christmas the day after thanksgiving this year and made a little video, too! it was very sweet to see how excited all three of the kids were for our little christmas trees and i just love getting a chance to create traditions together based around the season.
i introduced eleanor and samson to the movie home alone after we decorated the trees while conrad napped, and that is hopefully going to remain tradition from here on out. it was something we did at my home growing up on thanksgiving night so it was fun to introduce the movie this year. my kids love their slap stick comedy as much as their mama and it makes me very very proud. i forgot how much bad language there is in that movie (not the worst, but words they hadn’t heard yet that i was hoping they wouldn’t hear for a few more years still like “jerk,” “crap,” “hell,” etc. etc. gosh! the worst was when samson said later in the day, “merry christmas, you filthy animal!” and i was like, “WHOOPS.”) so we had to have a little chat about all of that afterwards, but anyway, i still love that movie so much and we maybe even watched home alone 2 the following day before bed.

what are some of the traditions you guys do to get into the holiday spirit? also, can i end every single post for the next few weeks with MERRY CHRISTMAS and get away with it?! ;)
