This year I VOW that my Christmas will NOT suck!

For those of you who've been around long enough, you may remember last year, when I wrote about how my Christmas was kind of a train wreck. It was so bad I never even set up a Christmas tree, which is one of my favorite things to do! I felt so bad for the kids, because even though they didn't complain, I felt like I let them down. After the holidays were over, I made a promise to myself that I would not let it happen again this year.

So far, we're off to a great start!

Handmade paper garland and "star". Fortunately, I already had all the paper I needed for it, so it was a free project to make! YAY

All done decorating! The girls are THRILLED, since neither of them remembers a Christmas WITH a tree...

The finished tree

It might be somewhat small, but I like my little tree. (However, I will hopefully be able to get a new, taller tree on sale this year after Christmas!)

I love it Jul...and I love the homemade touches. We have several handmade (by the boys) ornaments on our tree, and I think it just makes it!

Glad the girls (and Mommy) are so thrilled :).

I have also had completely crappy years and the same guilt. I hope your Christmas is much better this year.
