I used to love decorating for Christmas. I'm trying to love it now! It required one full morning with no one else here. I spread everything out and then it is sort of like Tetris as I figure out where it all goes. I turned on the Christmas tunes and had a little stash of chocolate. In the end, it was a great morning...and I love the feeling of magic after it's all done! The best was when Hannah walked in the door from school and said, "It looks so beautiful in here!" A good mom moment!
