We are on day eight of the 12 Days of Christmas I had no clue how I was going to write about for the Christmas decor in my home. I live in a very small town home and I am not an interior designer by any means. My house is usually a total disaster and not something I would ever want to showcase. When we put our tree up it looked nice for all of two minutes, strike that 2 seconds. Between our kids, cats, and a Christmas tree I have nothing gorgeous to showcase.
A Decor Disaster!
What I do to showcase is beautiful festive ribbon hanging off the tree like a wet limp noodle, Christmas lights in the shape of pine cones that my cats are thrilled with and are systematically pulling off our tree. Dirty socks, plastic lunch bags, and a tree skirt that was dragged off somewhere by someone. To count we have lost eight ornaments and counting and even when you think the ornaments up high are safe think again. Our two male kittens of around six months old think our Christmas tree was put up just for them to climb and look down on us lowly creatures they call humans.
Not only is my Christmas tree attacked, but the rest of my decor is a train wreck, but I am okay with that because Christmas is more to me than a perfect Christmas tree, it is a time of year to give more to others, to put up pretty lights that make your kids scream with laughter and clap with joy. It is for cats to climb and look in amazement at how cool that ornament is as it rolls down the tree and shatters on the wooden floor below.
This is nothing new for me, well maybe the cats part in the tree is, but as you can read in this post one of my very first on Inspired-Housewife our Christmas tree has been more about exploration than decoration.
