In lieu of putting up other decorations, like the tree (which we have not have time for, unfortunately), we settled for a simpler solution in case we didn’t get around to the bigger stuff. And it’s one that Namine could help with: painting the window with a tree and nativity scene, then decorating it with lights and homemade ornaments. Out of everything we did, Namine really got into making her own ornaments.
