Decorating for Christmas

I try to wait until the day after Thanksgiving to start decorating.  I won't say that Christmas music and movies aren't on before then, but decorations are not out until the day after.  Today, while having nothing to do, I got down a few boxes, and put some stuff up.  I have been scanning Pinterest to find some banners, and I found a few I liked.  I made it my own, with Ruthie's help, and I love the way it turned out!  It's not "Christmasy" but I like the fact that it can work year round, and it's a good motto to live by.  We shouldn't just praise Him during Christmas, but all year.

Here are a few photos of my decorating for the day!

I like to put what we are thankful for on my scrabble tiles.  For some reason I didn't get a pic of Randy's.  His says "food." This is mine-
 This is Ruthie's. 
 This is Randall's.  (No, I didn't tell him to put that!)

I am looking forward to getting our tree on Tuesday and decorating it together as a family!

You can see my previous post on my scrabble tiles here and here.

I'm just sitting down after putting up decorations! We put up the tree yesterday, and then had all sorts of lighting problems. I worked today, and stopped to pick up more lights on my way home. Bob was working too, so after supper we finished the tree and I put out the rest of the decorations. It's tiring but it sure looks nice!
I really like your banner and I love the scrabble tile idea. That Randall is a smart guy. :)
