Our 10 foot $5 dollar Christmas tree. (Lowe's had a $5 section in the back). I purchased the ornaments and topper for less than $20 last year after Christmas. All ornaments are shatterproof and kid-friendly. = )
Damon's first Christmas ornament
Our mantle with four stockings.
Our front door...Boxwood wreath from Target last year for $10.
The back door. I just added some leftover ornaments to a plain wreath.
And we are counting down till Christmas with the advent calender that I made last year!
It's feeling very merry, and we spent next to nothing (I think only the tree...) We try to keep the holidays simple, inexpensive, stress-free, and fun, and I think it really does make it the most wonderful time of the year.
