Day 23: Video: Belated Christmas Decorations



Two days ’til Christmas! Wow! Make sure you don’t let Christmas become a burden instead of a celebration! If you are getting stressed, then CUT STUFF OUT OF YOUR PLANS OR SCHEDULE (Just make sure Christmas Eve at Northway is in there though). Don’t let Christmas with your family suffer because of your focus on “Christmas traditions” or “getting everything done”.

Leah and I had to just say “NO” to some stuff we wanted to do. Even after we made a video about it, we had to decide to NOT send out our Christmas cards this year. Sorry, but something had to go! haha Maybe we’ll do Christmas in July… Naaaaahhhhh!


We made a video way back in late November, but totally forgot to post it. It was the one about Christmas decorating, which should have come right after the Christmas Tree video. It’s a little late, but we figured we would go ahead and post a shorter version of it.

I think we have over 100 “things” on our tree. There are pine cones, clear bulbs, colored bulbs, disco balls, bows, stick things,  small things, big things and more!

I am not allowed to touch any of the ornaments except for one. You will see it in the video, but each year I have one ornament that I am allowed to put on the tree as long as Leah decides the placement (she always picks the back of the tree for some reason). It’s a Red Sox World Series Championship ornament. I love that thing! Leah says that it messes up her “arrangement”, but I just remind her that it’s not my fault if the tree “accidentally” falls over, crushing her precious ornaments.

Anyway, what was I saying? Oh…you need to watch our very late Christmas tree decorating video!

What are some of the things you do to decorate for Christmas? Any secrets? Any time-saving / money-saving ideas?

Here it is:

    Is that the Red Sox ornament I got you a couple of years ago??? Glad you like it! No cards, huh…except I’m sure you are sending one to your favorite sister, right??? I sent our “picture” Christmas card out to you & Leah yesterday…might get there a little late but at least you already have your Christmas present! :) Merry almost Christmas Eve!

  • Lori – Hmmmm…maybe you got it for us. Nope…no card for you either! Sorry…This blog can act as a card. I officially dedicate this post to you…
