Let the kids decorate the tree, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.
Actually, it was fun! They loved it!
After they hung 90% of the ornaments in the lowest three branches of the old van Hulst family tree, we finished up our Christmas cards.
And after they were in bed, 80% of the ornaments were redistributed throughout the empty tree. They were none the wiser. Phew! OCD meltdown averted!
I love decorating for the Holidays! I am guilty of playing Christmas music in October and leaving out things that would be classified as Christmas decorations – in other homes – all year long. While it is by far the most stressful time of year, it is also the most fun!
