Nothing major, but necessary.
I know I didn't say anything, but...it's ok. I promise.
In knowing this was going to happen, I did simple for decoration this year.
The tree went up Thanksgiving weekend. Just enough to sparkle.
The girls learned quick not to touch...so we hear a lot of "wow!" and "ooh's!"
Our tree is topped with the star we had on our very first tree. I love it.
It doesn't light up, but it's special.
We hung our ornaments with care. No, literally.
The snowmen are corralled on our green dresser in the living room alongside the bottles from last years Christmas mantle setup.
The girls added their own sparkle to the walls. Look hard and you might see the crayon markings.
Coloring...it's a work in progress.
Our elves our placed on the mantle, or shelf, per say. Waiting for some girls to keep an eye on.
The garland is something I whipped up one day during recess. *smile* A tutorial will follow.
and the only other thing you might see that resembles Christmas decor is the amazing lady wrapping up some presents...she's here helping with my recovery and all. She's precious, ya'll, for real!
She's quick. *giggle*
It's not much this year, but it's enough. It helps to remember the focus of the season. The girls can ooh and awh over the real reason for such a wonderful celebration.
Sweet Luvins to everyone.
