Christmas Trees & Williamsburg

And just like that, Thanksgiving is over. I feel like I just blinked and here we are on the brink of Christmas! Nevertheless, Thanksgiving break was such a great time for my family and me. I feel like I was sprinting from one activity to the next, but it was all worth it. Here are some pictures from the first part of Thanksgiving break, along with a day by day recap on what I was up to. Enjoy!

As a Thanksgiving tradition, we always pick out our Christmas tree the day before Thanksgiving. Since my sister is in college, we like to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving, including decorating the tree. So it’s best if the tree has already been put up and has had time to fall before decorating!

Another family tradition is visiting colonial Williamsburg the day before Thanksgiving. So after picking a tree on Wednesday morning, we ran home and got pretty for an evening in Williamsburg, which is only about an hour from where we live.Ā Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I sadly have absolutely no pictures from Thanksgiving day! As always, my family and I watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. Then we finished making mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, and a gluten free pumpkin pie and headed over to our good friends’ house for dinner!

My sister and I always decorate tiny trees that stand in our bedroom’s during Christmas. Bonus: our dachshund Holly lovingly supervised the Christmas decorating process (as seen in yellow burrito blanket).

And this is my cute, lil’ tree.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving!
