My husband and I had put our tree up right before Thanksgiving because we knew we would be out of town later.While I was sick at home, that was the only Christmas decoration we had in the house. I was a little sad and frustrated every time I passed our dinning area and saw the boxes of decorations there waiting for me to put them up, but I couldn't!
|Our only Christmas decoration|
I was in the hospital the last week and my mom came out to stay with us for a few days. It was such a blessing to have her here to keep me company in the hospital and keep my husband's stress level down. I had mentioned to her a few weeks ago how I wished our home was decorated for Christmas. So when I came home from the hospital yesterday, this is what I found (please ignore the clutter, as it's a result of my prolonged absence from home!):
|My aunt made that handmade stocking for me when I was a baby:)|
|Even our porch table got a decoration|
Quick note: All of these Christmas decorations were donations or gifts to us from friends and family, as we are trying to be frugal and pay down our debts (step by step working to become debt-free!).
