Shoot and Edit: Holiday traditions (SOOC)


There are only five days to go before Christmas and I still haven't decorated our tree; at this rate, I think I'll finally get around to tackling it some time next year. At first I was beating myself up a bit for not being more holly jolly about everything for Sammy's sake, but I have finally come to the realization that it's more important that Captain Husband, Sammy and I enjoy our very first Christmas together as a family without staying up all night decorating the house and stressing over whether everything "looks" right.  After all, as far as Sammy's concerned, the lights on the tree are the best thing since sliced bread--why fix something if it's not broken?  Now, hopefully our undecorated tree won't become a holiday tradition, but with any luck, this Christmas will be the first of many happy holiday memories that we make together as a family and that's a tradition that I'll embrace wholeheartedly. 


Oh--one more thing: our Christmas card made it to the top thirty in the Paper Mama's Holiday Photo Challenge!  You can vote once a day until Wednesday this week so I'd really appreciate it if you could click here and give us a vote--we're #28 (just look for the little Christmas cowpoke below).  Thanks!

L, the holiday is so much more than the decorations! Enjoy each other, nurture your little family, spend quiet time together. We all tend to get too wrapped up in the trappings of perfection (myself included! I still have decorations in our attic that I haven't taken down yet!)

I agree. We only have lights and a star on our tree, and our son thinks it's the best thing ever. Ornaments will only be something he can pull off and cause more headaches for you. Save them for when he's old enough to help you decorate the house, then it'll be really fun and stress-less.

FWIW, I remember I didn't get the tree decorated for Ricky's second Christmas either. He could have cared less, the lights were plenty enough.
