My birthday was Monday and a few years ago we started a new birthday/Christmas tradition where we get out our tree and officially begin the Christmas season by decorating the house, drinking hot cocoa and blasting the Christmas music! Its always only a couple days before Thanksgiving, and I like getting a head start on it! This year we have a white tree (thank you christmas clearance!) and decorated it with all vintage glass balls. After decorating we took a walk around our (still very fall-ish) neighborhood.. and later went out to dinner with the whole family. It was perfect!
