How to decorate "simply"


 
This is how I decorate for Christmas.

  I'm not doing much this year...keeping it simple.

 Well I guess I better at least put up the tree...a few lights...a few ornaments...try to keep a simple theme....maybe just red.

  Up the stairs..go through boxes....down the stairs.....up the stairs

.....can't find my lights....I know they are in one of these boxes.....

why not just take ALL the boxes down the stairs.

  Oh look at this cute Santa....maybe I'll put himmmmmm......................here.

  Okay...the lights....hmmmm........well here's the outside icicle lights

 I'll just throw them on the tree...all the dangly parts will look cute!

....oh and here's some blue lights....I've never put blue lights on the tree.....

throw them on there too!

  Aww...look here's the gigantic Christmas frame with Matt and Tanner's picture

 let's just put ittttttt.....ummmm.......here!...on the end table...

.just skooch the lamp over and move this tray....hmmm..where can I put this tray?....

wait......rumble rumble....here's a bunch of old ornaments......plunk...tumble...tumble....

throw them all on the tray....now hmmm.....where to put the tray......

let's just sit it on the coffee table...not bad......now the tree........
 
just red ornaments....keeping it simple......oh here's the ornament we bought on our family trip....

but it's green and has ducks on it.....oh well...just put it on......
 
might as well put all of these different random ornaments on the tree......
 
what about the mantle....I don't want to move the stuff that's on the mantle....
 
just too tired for that so let's just go outside and cut some branches and throw some more ornaments
 
 and hey here's an angel...will......she.....fit........on.....top.......of.....this........candle.......(propped it up).
 
.(stepped back and looked).....no that looks stupid.......I'll take it down later.
 
  I like these natural branches from the cedar tree from outside
 
 let's just stick them behind EVERYTHING on the wall......
 
YOU get a branch....and YOU get a branch...and You get a branch.....
 
now what about the tree....hmmmm....maybe I should stick some branches IN the tree!!!
 
  Stick, stick, stick.........(stand back and look).....hmmm....no that looks dumb.....
 
start pulling branches out and pull all those dangly lights out and half the ornaments
 
 and about this time Matt and Tanner and Shannon walk through the door....
 
and the look of horror on their faces.....one of them said
 
 "it looks like Christmas threw up in here"..........hmmmpf....
 
they just don't know what a "simple" Christmas looks like.

My dad had hundreds of Santas....placed them in every room, every corner, every nook in the house. The grandkids cherish those memories now that he is gone. Your boys will, too, someday.
