I love holidays, but I’m not one of those people who spends (in my mind) an inordinate amount of money on indoor and outdoor decorations. That’s not to say I don’t have some decorations. I have a few Department 56 houses. And I have static clings for just about every holiday (thanks to my mom).
Side note on the static clings: I had so much fun putting them up this year. They didn’t want to stick at first, so I used my head. Technically, I used the wee ones’ heads, I suppose. I simply took the stubborn clings, rubbed them on their heads like you do with a balloon and then stuck them to the front door. It worked really well.
My heart swells with my pride as a mom. (kidding, kidding)
Anyway, there are some decorations that I am sure to put out every year. And that collection grows each year. This year, I wasn’t allowed to put anything out though. Mister Man decided he was in charge of it ALL (which is why it’s all sitting on our table in the foyer instead of being mroe appropriately distributed throughout the house).
And really? I don’t think I need any more decorations than these.
Every year the wee ones bring home at least one fun decoration per holiday, and I love it. This alone is worth the pain of childbirth, don’t you think?
What are your favorite decorations to put up?
