“You can put decorations around the house if you want,” I told the boys, opening our plastic tote of Christmas-y things. “I might not keep everything like you do it though.”
It was Monday night and I was worried that we would not have much energy after Thanksgiving vacation. So why not get the house Christmas-y before we leave?
The olive wood nativity scene was arranged decently on top for the fireplace. I found a candle wreath perched on a nail above the doorway. The snowflakes randomly posted throughout the house. And an olive wood candle from Bethlehem balanced on top of the wooden dice.
But I will say I actually like the plastic holly on my favorite lions!
And I’ll excuse the red ball at his feet, because it’s the year of the boys.
