Winter 14 Bucketlist Update // Trimmin' the tree, Deckin the Halls & lights}

Last week I posted our Hall Family Winter 2014 Bucketlist {here} and we have already made a big dent in it. We just love this time of year and all the fun events that come along with it!!!! We are already starting to knock things off our bucketlist. I am not sure if we will get to do everything this year, but we are sure going to try. There are just not enough weekends in December. And we lost one due to Mason being sick with the flu. is a little bit of what we have been up to!

We actually put our tree up the Saturday before Thanksgiving! It was a cool and rainy Saturday what better time to do it? Nathan was kind of against putting it up before Thanksgiving, but Mason and I couldn't wait. Nathan worked out in the shop on some Christmas gifts while Mason and I trimmed the tree and decked the Halls. Mason loves going through our Christmas buckets each year! And withing 10 minutes our floor is covered!!
