When I was little, my brother, sister, and I always got to sleep under the Christmas tree the first night it was up in our house. We did not start this tradition right away with our kids, but last year it came up in conversation and my kids wanted to do it. The kids slept under the tree last year; this year, we all slept in the living room last night, even though it was a school night!
Last Friday we joined my brother's family at my parents' in the mountains to cut a Christmas tree down. While we were there, we got some Christmas pillowcases from my mom, a newish tradition she started a few years ago. I had told her that I was trying to stay with red, green, and brown for all my decorations so she found this cute fabric. I love them!
