Christmas before Thanksgiving?

Last Sunday night even before Thanksgiving Andy was sooo ready to set up the Christmas decorations. We did realize that Andy has not had a Christmas at home since 2005 so Andy and Alyson brought up the Christmas boxes from the basement. It was so much fun to see him remember and reminisce about each ornament and item he pulled out of each box. I got the idea that Christmas in the West Indies is nothing like Christmas at home with your family. The tree got decorated, the stockings were hung, the lighted snowman on the front porch and they still wanted to do more. They decided on the Christmas village and everyone had a blast making the sledding hill, the skating rink and putting up the little light posts that really light up! It is so good to have all of my children together this year for the holidays. I definately have so much to be thankful for this year.
