This year, it was so hard for me to want to decorate our home for the holidays including Christmas. I felt so frustrated with our little 700 square foot cell, and the lack of room it provides for anything, especially decorations, that I refused to put anything up. After a couple days passed in the month of December, I gave in to the kids complaints and put up our nativity set.
A couple of days later my parents surprise me by decorating our two leafed tree with lights, bows, and ornaments. They also put a wreath which Kim sent us on our front door. My dad actually made it. I thought he did a fantastic job. I must admit, our home did look a lot more festive after that.
