Haley Estes  #LDS-Police Wife-Mother of 5❤️ 💕- Lover of all things home and decorating 🏡

I got the cutest little hand lettered name tags for our stockings from a girl at my church tonight and I love them so much! I’ll share them with you tomorrow in the daylight!! Hope everyone had an awesome Monday and if you missed it I asked a question in my stories and I’d love to know your responses👆🏻👆🏻

“Christmas is a piece of one’s home that one carries in their heart.” -Freya Stark

“But first and forever there was a little family without toys or trees or tinsel. With a baby. That’s how Christmas began.” -Jeffery R. Holland

As I mentioned in my Christmas home tour video, Christ being present in our decor was at the top of my list this year! That little nativity and the sign I made using this quote by Jefferey R Holland definitely helped bring in the spirit I was hoping to portray! Hope you all had a wonderful Monday!!! I finished editing a Christmas DIY that will hit the blog Friday! 🌲❤️

I snagged this and 3 other tin Christmas trees from hobby lobby last year and I just love them!!! They still had them this year too! Hope everyone is having a great start to their Monday! I’ll be busily editing a few Christmas DIYS for you today that will be posted later in the week!! Happy Monday!!

I hope your Sunday is fantastic, cozy, warm and all the magical wonderful things!!!! Thankful to have this family of mine to love on during the weekends! I won’t lie I’m not a weekend kind of gal😬 nope I kinda dread the chaos of the weekend but this weekend we got out of the house did some fun things as a family and it made all the difference!!! What have you been up to this weekend?!

I thought that I would really struggle with being a a rental this year. Turns out when you’re stripped of all the “extras” somehow it’s that much easier to recognize the true meaning of the season! How many of you are in a rental this year?! Just another reminder that sometimes less is more! Off to go do my Saturday chores and get ready for a date with my favorite man!!!! What you you all up to this Saturday?!

And just like that my 2018 Christmas decor is live on the blog! This home tour is special for several reasons! Being in a rental home has made me reflect on what Christmas really means to me and how I want to portray that to my kids! Christ, he is the center of this season and I wanted that to be present in our decor! I also have some new thoughts on decorating that I think many of you will find refreshing! More on that when you hop over! I’m also sharing my home with my dream line up of bloggers in a tour set up by my two wonderful friends Lisa @farmhouseonboone and Sheila @maisondecinq ! You will also find @somuchbetterwithage , @lizmariegalvan, @missmustardseed @laurmcbrideblog , @camitidbits @lizlovegrowswild @boxwoodavenue @roomsforrent @thistlewood & @maisondepax *
These ladies homes are beyond beautiful and I hope they bring the spirit of Christmas into your home as you get to virtually walk through each space!

Yesterday we had the sweetest Birthday celebration for Hudson! We have pretty much eliminated big Birthday parties opting for just immediate family! It’s been the best decision ever! We get to really focus on the birthday kid and Mom isn’t stressed about throwing a party!! and the elements of the day become a lot more about them! Than decor, the perfect cake and all the other details! That’s a big win in my book!

FLASH BACK to exactly one year ago! The night before I delivered our 5th surprise baby boy!!! It’s been such a wonderful year with Hudson! I can hardly believe life ever existed with out him!! I can’t lie a year ago I was sincerely terrified!!! I was about to have my 4th preemie baby and was just so nervous for all the stressful variables of my particular pregnancy! You guys God is good! And I am so thankful for what was honestly one of the harder seasons of my life! Makes times like now of peace so much sweeter! #pregnancy #placentaprevia #5thbaby #lifestyle #homedecor #christmasdecor

Who else feels like they’re still recovering from thanksgiving?!🖐🏻 ha ha I am still so excited for Christmas though and Friday I will be sharing me 2018 home tour!!! Can’t wait to share with you how I decorated our rental space this year and made it special for the holidays! Who already has their tree up?!! #christmasdecor #chrisrmasdecorating

Starting to feel the Christmas magic at our house! I spent all day and into then night decking our halls!!!! This is last years neutral decor. This year I went very classic red and greens! Also I can’t wait to show you my DIY flocked tree all dressed up! No regrets about doing the flocking myself at all! It really fits the style of our home so much better and for just 40$ I flocked our 9!ft tree! Here it is pre-flocked last year!
