This is a $25 already lit tree that we picked up a few years ago on one of our black Friday escapades.
We usually get a real tree, but this sure came in handy this year.
The ornaments are a combination of walmart cheapies and a 25 cent bag of old school ball ornaments I got at the thrift store.

I did break out our real stockings because they were expensive, and I want to get as many years out of them as I can.
I didn't, however, think to bring our stocking hangers.
I looked a few places to buy some cheap ones, but the cheapest was 20 bucks.
That totally goes against what I am going for here.
So hanging them on the window treatments it was.
It was Tim's idea . . . and it looked good with the even four stockings we started with.
Until we had to add Lexi's stocking which came in the mail this week.
How cute is that?
I just love the extra girliness next to the snowman and train ones we have for the boys.
I also brought this quilt that my mom bought me a few years ago.
It is so soft and warm.
I love having it on the couch for those cold, 75 degree days we get here in December.
I also decorated our table a bit with a walmart-snowman-plastic tablecloth.
But you don't need to see that because it is currently full of crap that I have no where else to put.
There you have it . . .
Bettelli Decorations 2012.
It isn't much, but I know it will be a year we will remember.
