I decided this year i wanted to put the tree up ready for the 1st of December so when the boys came down stairs to open there advent calenders all the decorations where up and they could understand what the calender was about a bit more. So my plan was to get everything ready go shopping for a few extra bits and but all the decorations up after the boys went to bed....
We ended up also fully re decoration the living room, we painted three of the walls over and then on the main back Jason wall papered :) then finally after all that was finished i got to put the tree up :) i was probably up until around 2am but i was determined to have it all finished for when they got up.
This year i wanted everything to be red and white. I love the tree this year, definitely our best so far :)
