Couldn't wait any longer!

I tried to wait until after Thanksgiving but couldn't resist any longer. I did better than last year though! I think I convinced my mom to put the tree up the first week of November then. The Germans are all about Christmas!  Perhaps it's because they don't celebrate Thanksgiving so they just dive right in? It's already snowing so why not? 
Miles just woke up from his nap and is checking it all out. 

We ordered a fiber-optic tree this year. My poor parents are the meditator to all things that don't ship APO, including the tree. It was worth it though! Miles surprisingly hasn't shown much interest in it. It is the cats that are constantly destroying it. They like to get in there an bat the ornaments around. Glass at the top! Plastic at the bottom!

Growing up my family had the same monogrammed stockings so we decided to start that tradition in our family too. I fell in love with these the second I saw them. In case you want to snag one of your own they are at Do you see how Miles stocking is a little elf one? So cute! 

Of all the pics we tried to take tonight this is the only one that turned decent. Like my giant pink leg?
