While most families go camping or have a picnic or just spend the day relaxing, Jake decided it was time to get his Christmas tree out of the attic and put it up in his room. He's beaten the retail stores by at least a month (let's hope at least two). If it were up to him it would have been up in July already. We tried to put it off as long as possible, but really, what is it going to hurt having it up now? Hopefully, he will think more about the birth of Christ than the idea of presents throughout the holiday season - which in our house starts now.
