...and the stockings were hung by the chimney with care

I was talking with a friend yesterday about how our desire for creating magical moments "sprinkled with fairy dust" for our children around the holidays sometimes gets thwarted with tantrums, fights, broken decorations, spilled hot chocolate, crayons in the fire, and basically a less than ideal outcome.

None of which happened to us while decorating for Christmas.  (wink, wink)

But in the end, don't you think we will all remember the magic over the meltdowns?




(we are going sans ornaments on the tree this year and I think I LOVE it.)

They don't call it Christ-mess for nothing. You place looks great and the kids do too-gone to bed. That is when your mommy elf decorated our house...as so the tradition continues.
