The first sign of the season around our house is when the Christmas music starts....the day after Thanksgiving! That's all I listen to. This year my favorite new CD is Susan Boyle's Christmas album. She is also wonderful in the movie, The Christmas Candle.
The next sign of the season is breaking out the Christmas purse! My children love this tradition...NOT! Last year someone hid it from me!
First, we start with the live tree! The weekend after Thanksgiving we go out to find the perfect tree. This is one of several trees in the house! Almost every room has a tree of its own!
There's my Susan Branch tea pot that I've had for years! Now I have a matching tea towel!
There in the middle of the table is the Amaryllis I planted last month!
You will always find crab and raviolis on our Christmas table!
