We put our tree up over the weekend, and the decorating is primarily dictated by my kids. In fact, I was seeing all white, silver and gold ornaments but my 7-year-old son insisted that red would show up better. Okay.
Since we don’t have a tree topper, I brought in more branches and sprayed them white.
And, I had the kids make ornaments with their name, year and something that described them. I’m hoping this will be a yearly tradition:
Our tree “skirt” cost me a whopping $9 for 3 yards of burlap:
We also did some furniture rearranging to make room for the tree, and I’m really liking the changes. And, I’ll show you as soon as I get the rest of the room picked up :)
