My Grown Up Christmas List

Now that Thanksgiving is over, Christmas decorations can go up at our house. We like to celebrate each holiday at it's appropriate time. I mean, if you like to put Christmas decorations in July, I don't judge...haha! Anyways, at the Barker house, we put our Christmas tree on Thanksgiving day.

Our first year having a plastic tree
While putting the tree up, decorating, and cooking for Thanksgiving dinner, we watch Plane, Trains, and Automobiles. We started this tradition 3 years ago and it's one of my favorites to do with my hubs.
Our tree, all done!
I had to laugh because our ornaments consist of football, penguins (of course! I love penguins), flip flops (my favorite foot accessory) and wine haha. I love our Christmas ornaments. 
The pups think it's their tree
The next day, we decorated the outside of our house. Let me tell you, it is a lot of work! My hubs isn't a visual person; he gets frustrated because he doesn't understand my plan and I get frustrated as well. This year, we actually did a good job of not yelling at each other, haha!

What's your favorite tradition with your family? I am all about tradition and hopefully instilling our tradition to our future kids. You all have a wonderful day! God bless!

  1. There is many traditions I love! But one that I've carried over from my Xmas traditions. We always eat donuts and have got coca when we decorate the tree!!

    1. What an awesome tradition, Sandra! I wish I liked donuts and hot cocoa. I'm not a big fan. I know I'm weird haha!
