A Christmas First

Alex and I (and assorted kids) decorated for Christmas without fighting. No angry words about how to string lights. No unreasonable demands about no one being allowed to rest on the couch while someone else decorates. No misplaced panic about pieces missing from the advent calendar.

Just cooperation, and the occasional timeout. For the kids. Not for Alex and I.

Our finished product:


It’s not fancy, but it seems to be pretty much kid and pet proof. Our living room is a cozy place to be right now.
