We don't decorate too much. Usually, I just string some lighted garland around the top of the piano and set a little 15-inch tree there. Our ornaments are all made of pipe cleaners and take almost no space to store. I usually put up a few small framed pictures of the little one with Santa from when he was younger and hang his stocking on the doorknob. We have a cool, stuffed hippie Santa that sits on the bookshelf. That's about it. Oh, and last year, we put up an activities "advent" calendar - a string of little envelopes, each containing a fun, frugal holiday activity - reading xmas stories, listening to our Dr. Demento xmas tape, baking cookies or vegan Chex mix, star-gazing, going to the town's tree-lighting ceremony, etc. I'll do that this year, as well.
Come visit us on Tangled Hill! One small family in a big, big world.
Peace through homemaking.
