*Be sure to check out my Tour of Christmas Crafts. You'll find chocolate cherry mice, gingerbread houses, and my nifty Christmas tree skirt there.
If you are here for the first time, welcome to my home! The old timers already know me, but allow me to introduce myself.
I am a homeschooling mom of seven and a half who believes in allowing children to be self reliant. This has created a "Meh... It'll do" attitude in me, and may I just say that the more children you have the more your "Meh..." attitude will bloom.
I allow the children to do the Christmas decorating mostly themselves and I love to see the pride they take in their work! I must admit this takes quite a bit of turning a blind eye to their, shall we say, creative design.
*None of the following photos were staged. All were taken as is.
Here we have the front door wreath. It welcomes visitors with a "Children live here!" message.
This is Delbert. The children take turns hiding him in various places for the others to find each morning. Legend has it that he returns to the North Pole each night while everyone is sleeping to report to Santa all the deeds of good and naughty children.
Here we have a decoration hand made and placed by one of the children. We like to keep things simple around here.
A closer look at the tree reveals some interesting spacing issues. This is where the restraint on my part comes in.
And this is what happens when the Mom o' Many is still working on the Christmas tree skirt in mid December.
Thanks for visiting! I hope you enjoyed the tour and will come back soon.
