This is my favorite time of year! I know I’m not the only one but the lights and Christmas socks and food and music are always magical for me. Since my grandparents came to stay with my parents for a month, I had the excuse to put my Christmas decorations up early…like before Thanksgiving. My grandparents have never seen our new house, so I decided to make it nice and festive when they came. Plus, I’m never going to pass on an excuse to set up everything early!
