Christmas Tree on Black Friday

Thanksgiving morning was filled with football and putting up the tree before we left for dinner. 
I wanted this part done so it would be ready for decorating on Black Friday. 

Miles was pretty excited to see the tree come to life. 
He wanted to be in the action and help with anything and everything.

Miles is really into helping with EVERYTHING right now.
Or....he demands "I can do it myself!"
But any excuse to be on a ladder with daddy...he'll take it!

The next day (black friday) Miles and I started to haul out Thanksgiving decorations and brought in Christmas.
He loved putting up the ornaments!

He even said to himself
"I'm really good at this" as he was hanging them up!
It was crackin me up.

As we were decorating our tree, we got a phone call from daddy saying that he was stationed for the day at a big Downtown Lighting Ceremony where he works and wanted us to come out for it.

So Miles and I quickly cleaned up and drove out to see our dad.

It only took us 40 minutes to get off the freeway exit and 45 minutes to find parking.
So we missed the firework show....
Thats okay though, Romney had to be on roof and we wouldn't have been able to see him anyway.
 After the fireworks the city turns on the millions of Christmas lights and the night begins.
It was crazy, there were so many people.
Miles and I made our way looking at the lights and found our dad!

It really was a unexpected fun night.

 Miles asked so many questions, pointed at so many things, and begged for dinner.

So we said bye to daddy, bought a cheesy light up toy (that broke in the car), and grabbed some dinner.

That was a fun Black Friday....and I didn't even go out shopping!
