How was your Christmas? Ours was just lovely. My girls are now almost 5 and almost 2, and it is such a sweet age. They get excited about the presents but aren’t greedy. The first gifts they opened were Cinderella coloring books, and they sat reading them page by page before moving on to another gift.
And Girl 1 was so excited to see Baby Jesus in the manger scene here at home, and in the one at church.

I have a few tips on having a classy Christmas:
Send out Christmas cards emblazoned with the logo of your favorite retailer:
— 3 —
Cut down a tree with a skinny trunk, so you can use guy wire to hold it up.
— 4 —
Show your daughter the movie Cinderella, shortly before hanging up your favorite glass slipper tree ornament.
Leave other breakable ornaments in her reach. A decapitated ballerina mouse is a nice touch.

Keep your decorations simple.
— 6 —
Don’t worry about the rest of the house.
— 7 —
Come down with a cold. Sit around the house sniffling for two days after Christmas, red-nosed and bedraggled, sharing germs with your visiting brother.
Do not–under any circumstance–pick up any toys.
Stay classy y’all!
