I have loved every second of it!

1.  go to the post office
2.  put up Christmas tree
3.  make paper chains and snowflakes
4.  hang stockings and advent calendar
5.  put together the nativity 
6.  go see Harry Potter!!!
7.  make holiday wreath
8.  get pink yarn
9. finish the afghan 
10.  put scrapbook pages together for Aunt Sue
11.  paint my mom's bedroom 
12. check out Letterboxing

Pretty close to getting it all done.
Here are some photos of my lovely lovely Christmas tree this year <3

My mom passed our family vintage aluminum tree and color wheel to Adam and I this year! I decided to fill it with only vintage and antique ornaments.  I used a vintage crocheted tablecloth as the tree skirt too.
I love it and I can't stop looking at it.  I've been working on all of my projects while sitting on the floor right next to the tree :)
When I have better lighting tomorrow, I will take some more photos of the other decorations and holiday collections that are displayed in the house.
This week is a three day work week!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
