Christmas Decorations 2014!

Hello Family and friends! I hope you’re all having a good day! I wanted to share my Christmas decorations this year.  Although I decorated our home the usual way and the only new Christmas decors I have are my Holiday pillows from target. I still wanted to put it here because it’s fun for me look back through the years on how our home looked during the Christmas season. I’ve been really intentional this year about not stressing about my Christmas decorations, we have no Christmas lights outside our house (I think we are one of the few who didn’t put any lights out and I’m fine with that). We live in a community where our neighbors hire people for that kind of thing. I’d rather see all the lights inside the house:) This might also be the last time we will have our Christmas tree in our living room because we plan to get a new one for next year (we are waiting for the after Christmas day sale). The Hubs just can’t wait for a nicer tree, he doesn’t like the current one (we’ve used it for the last 4 years) and I “sort of” agree with him that it’s time to get a nicer tree for next year. I apologize in advance because some of the pictures are blurry.
