Tradition: A Costco tree...a bit different from our former tradition of going to William's Tree Farm, but getting our tree from Costco has become our new tradition!
Tradition: Decorating the tree and each kiddo choosing a new ornament for that year...they love opening their personal ornament bins every year and looking through the ones they picked for prior Christmases!
Tradition: Decking the Halls
|Wreath I bought from a local Boy Scout...reminds me of my mom, who always bought Christmas wreaths from boy scouts!|
|I tried to get crafty with the branches we cut from the bottom of the tree.|
Tradition: Hot chocolate & The Very First Noel
New Tradition: Sleepover in the living room...Norah ended up requesting her bed. ;)
Tradition: St. Charles Electric Parade
Shenanigans while waiting for the parade to start...
|Jennie McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg...Grand Marshals!|
