I love the month of December! In times past I have always wanted to put up my Christmas tree Thanksgiving weekend. I love the smell of the fresh pine leaves. I have many wonderful memories of driving up to the Santa Cruz mountains with my 4 kids and cutting down our Christmas tree! What special memories do you have with your Christmas traditions? It is great to spend an afternoon reflecting on memories of our childhood and past times during the holiday season! Make each day special this month!
