The decorating of the tree took a little over a week. I knew with a couple of crawling babies in the house it is gonna be quite a chore for everyone to keep them away from the ornaments. But for the kids' sake I pulled out the ornaments just as the got home from school to make some wonderful, lasting memories of tree decorating.
And I finally finished my nativity. I would've loved to do it a lot sooner because I enjoy painting, but it's the mess that keeps me from it. If I didn't have to clean up I would have a lot more projects going on.
