|reindeer antler shed from Anais' trip to Quesnel|
What has changed is that I definitely put up less "stuff".
I like greenery in select places, the white tree was relegated to the front porch with the little white lights and white kid-made wreathe. And the scent of evergreen permeates the main floor. We top our hand-selected fir tree with a red tin star and decorate with silver and red Christmas ornaments. Deer heads seem to be a reoccurring theme. They've found their way on our walls, on our art, in our display of succulents and in our tree. We may have over-done it.
But I did let the kids use a controlled amount of tinsel - a previously banned substance - for the tree for the first time. I consider that progress.
