Decking the Halls

We have decked the halls with wreaths, trees, ornaments, garlands, lights, nativity scenes, and holy...fa la la la la, la la la BLAH! It takes so much time to decorate. I don't know if I have accumulated too many decorations or too many kids...but it sure took a lot longer this year.

The stockings have been hung by Kaylee and I with care,
In hopes that little toddler hands won't destroy what is there.
The boxes have been carried in, unloaded, and put away.
The decorations are in their proper places to stay.
But I know that it won't last. That's too good to be true.
The nativity scene will soon be missing a wise man and Mary too.
The bottom of the tree will be void of any ornaments and light strands.
To keep them out of reach of Nathan and Izy's little hands.
It looks great for now. I will enjoy it while it lasts.
Because I know that Christmas will go by way too fast!

Stacey, you clever little poet, you! I'm quite impressed with your poetic abilities as I have little to none.
Cute decorations!
