We are a small family only celebrating our second Christmas together, so we have few decorations. Last year the major expenses were spent on our tree. I also received a few decorations from my mom and mother-in-law. This Christmas I went to Target and bought a few more decorations, all under five dollars.

|A little mistletoe at the front door always guarantees a kiss! I bought the mistletoe for |
five dollars and the hook from two dollars at Target.
|In the bathroom I have a snowman hand towel sent by my MIL.|
|In the kitchen are matching snowman potholders and oven mitt from my MIL.|
|Christmas cow kitchen towels from my MIL|
|On the refrigerator is an advent calendar I picked up free from church.|
|On the back sliding glass door are ironic snowflakes from Target for two dollars. Owen loves these.|
|Our 3 foot, pre-lit Christmas tree was bought last year for twenty five dollars from Target. Last year I also bought a silver star tree topper, a three pack of snowflakes for three dollars, a sparkly red tree sham, and three ornaments for three dollars each: a Russian doll for me, a gingerbread man for Clifton, and a blue monkey for Owen. This year Owen picked out a new three dollar ornament for the new baby, a white dove with a red tobagan. I also bought Owen a child's Santa Claus hat from Walmart for five dollars. Underneath the tree are my newspaper wrapped presents,|
because ain't nobody got time fo dat.
My mom sent us a care package through my dad of Christmas presents and nativities. Here are pictures of our newly gifted Christmas tree and a nativity sitting safely on the kitchen counter.
How do you like the decorations? How are you decorating your house for the season? Are you making any of your decor? I love DIY projects, but I am lacking motivation this year.
