Last year, my mom sent us a "Christmas in a Box" craft to do. We saved it until this year and got it out last week.
The kids decorated it and put it on the mantle.
They were able to do most of it themselves. The little ornaments hung on the ends of the little cardboard branches.
Then we got our tree on Thursday (adopted it from a nice Jewish family...) and had to put that up this weekend.
We have been house bound due to the Chicken Pox, so it has been great getting stuff done for the holidays.
We're gonna try and decorate the house this week also. Thanksgiving is now just 1 days away! Spending it with friends!
Have a happy!!
