We may go overboard with decorating for Christmas but it is so much fun! I think the best part of it all is experiencing it with children. I wish my desires were as simple as theirs. It is a shame we lose the excitement which little things bring as we grow up!
Since the artificial tree we purchased after Christmas last year was of the pre-lit variety, we have quite a few extra strands of light. The hallway, as you can see here, is decorated with garland and lights. They work well as night lights but are a bit too bright. So, we unplug them for bedtime.
