Lazy Decor

When it comes to holidays, any holiday, I’m not much for decorating.  I don’t know whether I’m lazy and don’t want to drag things out and then have to put them away or if it’s just not as much fun as it used to be when kids were around to get excited.  In any case, my efforts are fairly minimal.
