This year I am sticking to a few Christmas decorations that 1) do not cost much 2) I will not want to take with me when we move (disposable Christmas, anyone?) 3) Katherine and Nathaniel can help make 4) will not take up much room in our tiny, low-ceilinged house and 5) are either indestructible or up high (Nathaniel can help make, but then we put them beyond his reach). So we’ve come up with this:
Best of all, though, my parents will be spending Christmas with us, and that really will make everything feel like a holiday, even if Sydney and I will each disappear for a couple of days during their visit to fly to the US for job interviews. So it’s not just Katherine who is counting down the days to Christmas!
