Funny thing is…I am never all that motivated to decorate for the holidays. I think it’s because I know that whatever I put up…must come down within a month. So, if I am being honest with you all…I will admit…I don’t decorate for ANY holiday EXCEPT Christmas.
Sorry, but it’s true.
I absolutely LOVE Christmas time though and I am all about getting the decorations out early! It seems like every year gets better and better as the boys get older (and we keep adding boys-ha!)This year I let daddy and the boys decorate the tree. I am usually very anal about how it “needs” to look, but something happened in me this year because I honestly haven’t touched it once since the boys did the hanging of ornaments. Unless you count picking up ornaments off the floor and putting them back on the tree. You know, after Bents attacks the tree every other day.We also kept the ornaments to a minimum this year. Not sure why, but nonetheless I’m at peace with it.We have a small tree at our front entrance, along with our awesome new card holder from Callie! I have never owned a card holder before and I am telling you now…if you don’t have one. Get one. Make one. Find one.
One of the easiest ways to add some Christmas spirit to any table is to use a clear glass vase…and throw some Christmas ornaments in it!
…reindeer look like toys!
One of the boys favorite things? The advent calendar that hangs in the kitchen. P tries to move the candycane to the 25th every morning. Ha!
