It's that time again... the time of year when I feel intimidated by the beautiful Christmas trees and tastefully decorated homes of my friends. The time of year when I have resigned myself to putting up our lousy fake Christmas tree again because I am a cheapskate.
Since Charlie is walking this year and spreading "Christmas Joy" (ornaments) around the house, I'm past wasting money on shatterproof ornaments for him to lose in the backyard. Let me introduce our tree this year, brought to you by The Dollar Tree -
Ah, ain't she lovely? I let the kids decorate it and since neither of them can reach the top, there isn't anything up there. Okay, truthfully, I lost our angel, so I'm going to have to go out and buy a new one. The kids really did decorate the tree though.
Despite being able to have a lovely tree, I do love Christmas with little kids. They are so easy to please. No requests for iPods or computers to satisfy. I know they will be thrilled when Santa fills their stockings with cheap dollar store toys and candy. If only adults and teenagers were that easy to please!
