Keeping it simple. We finally put up our tree this evening. Cutting it close eh? This year I was reading an article about keeping it simple. I thought, "Hey, I can do that!"! So I did. I actually went out and bought a 4.5 foot tree. (Only $14.75 because it was on sale.) The kids and I decorated it with the decorations that fit then we boxed everything else up and put them away. I did not decorate the doors or the walls but I will put out the Nativity Scene. I have never done this before but I want to actually enjoy Christmas this year and not be stressed out. (What a concept!) After Christmas I don't want to be in the depression that grabs hold of me every year when I have to take everything down.
It looks really pretty and very simple. I have my favourite mementos and decorations out and the wee tree is twinkling. It is nice.
