And here I am amidst the beauty of blogging, inviting you inside our townhouse! No need for neck craning here! :)
(It drives me crazy that there is nothing on my coffee table. But keeping it real, the boys sit on it more than they do the couch, so there's no point. But it looks so empty in this picture! I should have put the boys on it.)
The extent of the Christmas decor that we brought with us to Pennsylvania was ornaments. That's it. Oh, and our nativity from Bethlehem. We didn't feel like dragging everything up here just to lug it back. So, we went the simple route with a real tree (though that wasn't real simple....), ornaments, and then I picked up a few things here and there to brighten up the place and make it exciting for the boys.
The one thing that I miss SO much this year is our Christmas village. It's my favorite part of our decor every year and it makes me smile each time I glance at it. I'll be extra excited to bust it back out next year!
We didn't have a good spot for the tree, so it's in the middle of our dining room. Haha! I love it! :)
Seriously, is there anything more wonderful than a Christmas tree? I could stare at it all day ... and sometimes I do. But the top bugs me. I'm not good at just having a star. I like giant sparkly things shooting out every which way. The boys love the star.
Do you spy that cute pillow?
I fell in love with these two pillows this year and had to have them.
And I found these little trinkets at Hobby Lobby that the boys love to look at.
We didn't bring our stockings so I picked these cuties up for the boys. And we don't have a fireplace, so we hung them on the staircase with care.
I popped a few things in the kitchen too, for festivities sake.
There you have it, friends. Our simple, easy, cozy tinsel townhouse.
