Oh Tannenbaum

For those of you that haven't known me for very long, you probably don't know that I spent 3 1/2 years of my high school in Germany. We moved over there December of my freshman year and I left the July after I graduated. You also probably don't know that I minored in German language in college and can still speak it pretty good although it is fading fast! Now that random fact hour is over we'll move on to our Christmas tree decorating (or Tannenbaum in German)
The day after Thanksgiving is our traditional throw the tree up and decorate the house festivities day but since all of my boys were sick the festivites had to wait until Sunday night. That poor tree sat naked in our garage from Friday to Sunday! Once we were able to decorate we had a really fun time. I made a homemade BBQ Chicken pizza in my cute apron my bff Mary sent me for my birthday
The boys helped hang ornaments
we all ate pizza and sugar cookies
and watched Frosty the Snowman
And Jackson was more than thrilled that he got to put the star on top. He only asked if it was time about 300 times!
I'm so thankful for my family and our sweet, fun memories!
