They are both pretty short but are hilarious and the songs are great. If you've never seen them, I highly recommend. They're not just for kids! Although I've been enjoying autographed copies of the Berenstain Bear books since I was a kid since my dad taught Stan and Jan's kids. The humans, not the bears.
Black Friday is important in our house, not because of the sales, but because it marks the first official day that we are allowed to listen to Christmas music. We make sure to load up the iPod with a hefty playlist for when we're driving around doing some calm and casual shopping. One of our favorite Christmas classics is the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack. It's so good!
We also have lunch at Chick Fil A and share a black and white milkshake. It's a great tradition.
The Saturday after Thanksgiving is reserved for putting up our Christmas tree. Nick sets up the tree (we have an artificial one since we have a cat) and puts all of the lights on, and then we put the ornaments on together. While Nick is battling with the lights, I bake some cookies and start stringing the popcorn.
We're pretty big into Christmas around here, so I'll be posting about all things Christmas for the next month: homemade decorations, traditions, recipes, and activities. Happy Christmas Season!
