Christmas has already begun for "Today Show" co-host Jenna Bush Hager and her family, as her fans got to see that in a recent post on her Instagram Story. Hager shared a picture of her daughters, Mila, 7, and Poppy, 5, seated on the floor and in front of a decorated Christmas tree in their house.
The sisters looked delighted in the photo, which their mom captioned, "Too soon?" Hager shared a second snapshot that showed a closer view of the Christmas tree with its lighted bulbs and other beautiful decorations.

While the mother of three wondered if it was too soon to put up the Christmas tree in the caption to the first picture, she explained her thinking behind putting it up now in the caption to the second snapshot, writing:
"I say no! Let's move onto 2021 and have some holiday cheer while we at it."
On Thursday's edition of "Today" with Hager and her co-host, Hoda Kotb, the former revealed she had already put up a Christmas tree and shared a photo of the tree on the show.
Hager revealed she and her daughters put up the tree and said she was unsure if it was too soon to do so. Kotb said it was not too early, to which Hager immediately agreed.
Poppy told Sully she wanted to hug him, while Mila asked the service dog if he could remember their late great-grandfather.

She went on to reveal that her family always put up Christmas trees. Hager also said she continued a tradition, which her mom practiced with her twin sister Barbara Pierce Bush when they were kids, with her daughters Mila and Poppy.
Hager's post on her Instagram Story showed she and her daughters could hardly wait for Christmas. However, the trio had a long-awaited reunion with the service dog who served the co-host's late grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush.

To honor Veteran's Day, Hager, Mila, and Poppy reunited with Sully the Service dog, who was with President H.W. Bush in the last months of his life, via a sweet Zoom call.
During the call, Poppy told Sully she wanted to hug him, while Mila asked the service dog if he could remember their late great-grandfather. The girls also introduced Sully to their baby brother, Hal, before waving it goodbye.
Sully struck up a beautiful friendship with the late H.W. Bush, which lasted six months. The special friendship left an impression on the dog, as seen in a now-famous picture that showed him loyally staying beside his late owner's coffin.
