A Charlie Brown Christmas

When Chris was little (Can you imagine that?), we always waited until December 1st to start decorating for Christmas. That allowed us to focus on his birthday and Thanksgiving in November. In trying to keep our rapidly accumulating "stuff" to a minimum, I purchased a scrawny table top tree yesterday. By the time we lovingly added garland and ornaments, it looked pretty cute! (Charlie Brown would be so proud of us....) Just for fun, I bought an Advent calendar at Legoland Windsor back in October, so the first box was opened today, and the little Lego character was assembled and added to the tree. Surrounding the tree are crackers - those will be new to us. We'll do our best this month to experience all that a traditional English Christmas has to offer!
