Turkey goes out, tree comes in

Well not the case this year since we didn't cook a turkey or even eat turkey on Thanksgiving. It's pretty sad that this Thanksgiving was probably the first I have not had turkey.
Any who now that Thanksgiving is over we started our holiday tradition of decorating the house. On Saturday we put up our tree, hung our stockings and got the Christmas season started. Our day started just like it does every year. We get out all of the Christmas boxes, light all the smell good candles and put on some Christmas music. This really gets our family into the holiday spirit.
On Sunday we went to brunch with our Houston friends then to downtown to the Santa parade. It was surprisingly long, lots of floats, bands and high school cheerleaders and dance teams. We had to bundle up a little but it was really fun!
