Christmas Prep in the Year of the Boys

“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.

  1. Well, lions need something fun to play with too. I think the red ball is perfectly set up for a try for an extra point!
