Ornaments and Story Telling

While it was nice taking a trip to Georgia and helping the relatives move,
it's also great to be back home in Chicago and spending holiday time with Charles.

I think we've started a new tradition!
A few nights ago we went over to his place where Charles had a basket filled and waiting
with all the ornaments he kept while he was growing up.

The two of us turned on some Lady Antebellum and of course some Frank and Bing!

My little box of ornaments was added to the collection.
We took turns pulling ornaments from our box and basket and told the story behind each ornament as we placed it on the tree!
It was a sweet way to learn more about each other and relish in our time decorating the tree together.
A little old fashioned tinsel and a pretty tree skirt and this tree will be complete!
And did I mention that it's almost time for some Christmas baking and and some classic Christmas movies. 
What a joyous time of the year as we await Baby Jesus' Birthday!

A blessed and happy Advent =)
