I love Christmas. It's my favorite time of year. This year, even though it is not yet December, I managed to convince hubby that we should get our tree yesterday. We did have a great day. It was a really pretty one here in Northern CA. We went over to Half Moon Bay, cut down the tree, had a picnic with the kids on the beach and then walked to the harbor to watch the crab boats come in a picked out a yummy one for dinner! After dinner we drank hot chocolate and decorated the tree and house. Hubby will do the outdoor lights next weekend but I am officially in the holiday spirit!
