Christmas DecoratingKids often have a different decorating sensibility than parents. Kids' Christmas decorating ideas may include giant snowmen and blinking lights, while parents may prefer holly and silver beads.

I used to love silver beads as a kid! My son seems to enjoy them too, so I guess our taste is quite similar :-)
I really donīt mind the house resembling more of a toy store than a shiny classy penthouse, I was not so fond of Christmas decorations before I became a mother so I think itīs mostly about the fun that my child has decorating (or better, that WE have decorating together) than anything else. So far no requests for foam reindeers though :-)
Nice tips on the safety, thatīs something we all should take special care of.
