Our normal tradition after cutting down a tree is to go to our favorite Local Cajun Restaurant but, it was late and we were all just hungry (and that favorite place tends to run a little slow when busy) so we took the boys to their new favorite place - a Chinese Buffet that is actually pretty good (and the boys eat free so we can eat for less than $20.00). The boys really enjoy being able to go up and pick out their own food including things like finger jell-o, and fruit. Plus they get ice cream :-)
It was pretty late by the time we got home so we got the boys into bed and decided to finish the tree on Saturday.
We figured since all of our normal traditions were thrown out the window concerning the tree, we would just continue with that plan. Normally, we watch Home Alone while decorating the tree - we only had about 40 minutes before bedtime so we tossed that idea out. Plus we usually have some fun food - Darryl picked up a pizza on his way home. I figured at this point, our tree is up and beautifully decorated so now, we can get back to our traditions :-)
