Our Festive Weekend…

This weekend my in-laws brought me my Christmas tree!
I have officially upgraded from a 4.5 foot tree to a 7.5 foot tree, wahoo.
The tree was looking awfully lonely just sitting in the box, I couldn’t help myself.
So, I decided I would ONLY put it together.
Once is was up, my urge to put the lights on was too strong.
And then I needed to take an inventory of my decorations, so I thought I would put 50% of them on, logical right?
Before I knew it my tree was 75% decorated. Yes, I need help.
I did save the rest of the decorations to up as a family.
I made a cute little video of our festivities.
I got this idea from YHL, expect theirs is way cooler 🙂

I need to buy a couple more decorations to finish it off but it is almost there.
And even though I know it is super early, I can’t help but smile every time I look at it.
There is something so magical about a Christmas tree.

Are you fighting the urge to get your tree up?
Or am I the only crazy one?

    Such a cute family!

    Love your tree. Gorgeous! I can’t wait to put mine up – you definately aren’t the only one.

    Very cute! I love the music too – I am already thinking about a tree and buying a new one or real one but it is a TAD early! Not even Thanksgiving, so I think I’ll wait!! ;-0

    And I thought I was the only one getting a Christmas tree up this early! We are actually getting our today! ..i’m so glad i won’t be the only one…great video and music by the way.

    Danielle, I am totally laughing because my post on my blog today is also about putting up my tree this weekend! We always put our tree up before Thanksgiving! I just love Christmas! Super fun video!

    We won’t be getting ours up til after Thanksgiving. But, ONLY because we have a tradition to go cut one down in the mountains with some of our best friends. Considering I am already listening to Christmas carols, I think this tradition is the only thing keeping me from enjoying mine right now!

    What a cute video! I would love to have mine up because I feel like the season is too short but we too have a tradition to go cut ours down with family friends right after Thanksgiving! I have busted out some Christmas CDs and my daughter begged me for eggnog!

    I’ve been wanting to put mine up all month! My husband said not until the day after Thanksgiving but I think he is about to give in! YAY! Christmas tree might be up sometime this week!

    We are actually deciding if we are even going to have a tree this year…I am leaving early to go visit family for x-mas and my husband doesn’t see the need to buy a tree for like 10 days. But, If I put ours up early like you…there will still be time to enjoy it!

    Love your video and I’m curious to see all of your cute ornaments up close! (I need ideas 🙂

    That is the cutest video ever! What a precious family. I have put up one of my trees already (I have two), so you’re not alone. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, so we might as well enjoy it as long as possible!!

    I’ve started putting up our Christmas decorations… I feel crazy, like I have to make excuses to get them up, so I totally laughed at your post today! Love it. Embrace the Christmas!

    Such a cute video! Yes–I am ready to put our tree up NOW. 🙂 My husband has convinced me to wait until after Thanksgiving. Can’t wait.

    By the way–love your painting–it look so good!
