There was some debate whether or not we should decorate for Christmas this year, and if so, what decorating should entail.
The biggest decision was about the tree. With an active eleven month old and a small-ish space, we just didn't know if it made sense to put up a tree. In the end, Jen ended up making the decision --she put up the tree while I was at work. I was happy to come home and see it twinkling with multi-coloured lights. It does feel more like Christmas with a tree up.
Over the weekend we hung ornaments on the tree. This year we opted only to put our non-breakable ornaments on. We also put up our stockings and displayed our Santas (one from each year that we have lived together). Our delicious pine scented candle is out on the buffet and there are also some lights in the window. I would still like to hang up a bunting that holds Christmas cards, but I need to get some of those removable hook things to do that, so maybe this weekend.
We could definitely do more, but for our space and the point we are at in our lives right now, this feels like enough.
I'll try to update with photos later in the week.
What do you do in terms of decorating for the holiday?
