Christmas Decorations 2013!

It’s Christmas time again and that means bringing out all the Christmas decorations and lights, you all. Growing up in the Philippines, my family usually has decorations around late October till January. Here in the U.S there’s still Thanksgiving to celebrate before we can go all out on the Christmas stuff (though some families will have their Christmas decorations up before Thanksgiving). We hosted Thanksgiving this year so I had to wait till it was over before I could put out decors. The same fake Christmas tree (my husband wants a real tree next year) and ornaments and some hand me down Poinsettias  flowers from my MIL( I try to make use of what we already have in the house). The only new ornament we got this year is the one from Sea World (from our vacation last month) as well as a few Christmas decorations from Target. I plan to buy decorations after Christmas when they will be on sale and get a good deal for next years decorations.  I hope you had fun decorating your home as Christmas is just around the corner, always remember the reason why we are celebrating! Jesus Birth!
