Christmas Decorations!

I should have written this post a long time ago!  Sorry for the delay but Christmas and New Years were CRAZY!  I was super excited to decorate our apartment for Christmas!  I really enjoyed bringing out all the stuff that have been in boxes for a few years and see them around our apartment.  

I LOVE our stockings!  I searched high and low for stockings that I really liked because we plan on keeping them for a LONG time.  My parents gave me some money for my birthday to get stockings and I finally found some at the Hallmark store!  

This is the only picture I have of our snowman!  Jake was leaving for a hunting trip one day after he got home from work.  He propped his gun up in the living room and when I woke up I sent him a picture text message and said that our snowman was ready for the hunting trip too! The puppy on the corner of our TV stand was given to me by my uncle Jimmy 2 years ago. 

This little reindeer was given to my parents by my Uncle Jimmy.  They no longer put the reindeer out and asked me if I wanted it.  I of course said YES!  (For those of you who do not know, my Uncle Jimmy passed away in July so these items are very special to me!)
 I just love a tree that has presents under it!  Oh how I loved decorating for Christmas this year and look forward to it for many years to come!
