We got our Christmas decor up this year with relative ease. Only one sibling fight and one broken bulb! I know I should jump on the shatterproof bulb bandwagon, but I really love glass bulbs.
Usually Dan ends up putting the tree up mostly by himself (because most of the time we start too late at night and all the kids crash out), but we all hung in there this year.
Danielle decided we should have a red, green, silver tree this year. Here's the finished project sans silver ribbon that I went out and bought the next day.
I can only hope the rest of the holiday season goes so smoothly! It gives me a lot of encouragement that I can respond to any of my kids missteps by singing "you better watch out, you better not cry...", if only we had something that possessed this leverage all year long!
