Decorating the Tree

The holiday season is always a blast at my house. Whether we’re jamming out to “Jingle Bell Rock”, watching our favorite Christmas movies (The Polar Express all the way!), or enjoying a cup of mint hot chocolate, we’re content because we’re making time for each other during the busiest  time of the year.
