Christmas Decorations

The Christmas decorations may have gone up very early in my house, but our lives got nearly chaotic immediately following. My grandma became very weak and went into the nursing home for rehab/strength building, I started working an hour from home and Cam started working holiday hours. The nursing home was between me and the school where I'm working until mid-February, so I would stop every day, and then run the errands I needed to do like Christmas shopping.  On average, we were both away for our house for 60+ hours during the work week. I was lucky to get home, get some dinner, unwind and get to bed by 8 or 9pm. I didn't want to do much of anything else..... and sadly, blogging took a back seat.

Here are some of my Christmas decorations around the house...
Let me preface with--- I am not a photographer, nor a decorator...
Just a poor girl with a love of Christmas decorations!
