Crying Wolf & A Christmas Tree

What do these 2 things have in common?
 They are the reasons our tree was up and decorated a week before Thanksgiving ;-)

Bless Hallie's heart when she gets the least bit anxious she has an ailment. We have lovingly told her the story of the little boy who cried wolf several times. A few weeks ago we were supposed to go out for dinner on Friday night and Hallie complained of not feeling good-but this time her Dad had lost his patience with her. Fast forward to the next morning Hallie has a fever of 101* and we head to the Doctor with one guilty feeling Dad.
On the ride home Hallie weakly asked her Dad if we could put the Christmas tree up. Let me set the story we have never put our Christmas tree up before Thanksgiving but he jumped at the chance to say yes.  So a week before Thanksgiving for the first time ever in our 21 years of marriage our tree was up.
 With the addition of the Alabama ornament Hallie and I made earlier this year
 The homemade ornaments you see with fabric and beads mean a lot to me my Aunt and I made them when I was newly married and she came to visit.
Hallie also has a small tree in her room-pink of course! We also added Hallie's monogram letters this year that my talented sweet friend Kellie made.
