Thanksgiving is less than one week away and with the holidays just around the corner, families across the state started preparing for their festivities on Sunday.
Many took advantage of the warm weather, spending time outside hanging Christmas lights. Decorating is a tradition that Richard Navarre shares with his daughter Stephanie.
"I'm very happy that he comes over to help me every year," she said.
Stephanie lives along Candy Cane Lane in West Allis and is looking to have her house decorated by Friday before the annual lights display.
"I try to change something up every year and every year I add a penguin," said Stephanie.
Local resident Mitchel Large spent $600 on Christmas lights for his new house. He started decorating his home right after Halloween.
"We got the front decorated and we still have to put lights up," said Mitchel.
Mitchel and his family are celebrating their first year in a new home, making their newly established tradition extra special.
Over at Metcalfe's Grocery Market, Lawanda Dotson stocked up on all the items needs for a Thanksgiving dinner. Dotson is expecting 15 guests this year.
"I have a lot of family and friends coming over so I'm hosting and trying to get the last-minute stuff," she said.
