We decorated the house for Christmas! This tradition is usually done the weekend after Thanksgiving but since we will be in KC next weekend we did it yesterday.

We hung lights outside, put up our tree, and put up all of our fun decorations.

While we spread around our holiday cheer I tried out a new appetizer on Luke, ham and cheese Hawaiian rolls. They are SO good, and something new to make for parties this season!

We are stealing a tradition from my sister, getting an ornament each year that symbolizes something from that year, I found the perfect one while shopping at Cabala's, notice how they are marshmallows on chocolate and graham cracker? too cute! We also have some other ornaments that are special to us, one is from my sister, one from my friend Meghan, and of course Boomer has his own ornament he helped to put on!

Here are some pictures of our decorating day!
