Usually we go buy ours the day after thanksgiving. Probably what we'll do this year.

I'm taking down Halloween today.
And I need to order William's stocking from PBK so it's here to hang when we decorate at the end of the month.

I usually try for the day after thanksgiving too, but DH almost never co-operates... this year I have no idea, I don't even know what house I will be in. I had planned to get one as soon as we got to Oklahoma, but now I don't even know if we are going to OK.

We usually do our Christmas stuff mid-November as well - we love decorating for holidays, so we like to get ours put up and enjoy it as long as possible!

We will be having our first christmas right before Thanksgiving when my mom is coming to visit, so we will have ours up for that, probably the week before Thanksgiving. Normally I would put it up sometime Thanksgiving weekend.

We can't buy a Christmas tree here until the day after Thanksgiving. That is the day we will get it. I love the way the decorations look but I don't love putting it all up.

I don't even know. This will be my first year really having a reason to decorate - up til now I've been all single girl and no reason to have a tree up of just me. I know it'll be mostly symbolic this year, but it'll still be nice.

Pbk had their stockings on sale for $19! Received Brady's the other day in the mail. Super cute! I can't tell if I like it better than Camden's which is from a few years ago.

Traditionally we put it up the day after Thanksgiving. Growing up my mom would start getting everything out that morning and we would spend the day getting things ready, listening to Christmas music, watching Christmas movies, and eating yummy leftovers.

Since we will be in Texas this year I am going to ask the soldier who will be staying at our house if he wants it up. If he does we will put it up the day before Thanksgiving (we fly out that night).
