A Christmas Tour

Just a little tour of the Christmas decorations in our home this year. Last year was a challenging Christmas season for me, with Garrett being born on the 15th and Addison and Bennett being so sick, I had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit. This year I had so much fun decorating the house for all of our parties we hosted and guests we have had.
The garland with lights and the dangling ornaments over the breakfast nook window.
Our cookies for Santa plate.
The mantel, with all 5 stocking holders.

This is one of our favorite pieces of furniture. It is a huge corner cabinet that is now in our living room. I love how the garland and the red star make it feel so festive.
The presents are all wrapped and ready to go.
My little photographer, she was using her Poppa's camera to take pictures of our house, "So he will remember what it looks like." I think she is going to like her very own camera that she is getting in the morning.
A view of the fireplace and corner cabinet. You can also see all of the light up antlers and Santa hats.
This is my favorite decoration this year, and I think it has gotten the most attention from all of our guests. My mother has given me a Swarovski ornament every year for the past 10 years or so. They are beautiful ornaments, too beautiful to be put on the tree. This year my mom found this great display piece and it makes the perfect centerpiece. The ornaments are safely away from the crazies, but out where we can all enjoy their beauty. It is fun to see which design is each person's favorite.

I have had this nativity since I was a little girl. They have gotten a lot of love from my children as well.
More stars!

So many people have walked into our home and commented on this little guy. I love hearing people say that they had one when they were a kid. This is the same one I used when I was young, my mom found a second one to keep at home for my sister so I was able to take this one with me. I used to love moving that little mouse from day to day.
Our entry way, I had to add a second card holder, I LOVE all of the Christmas cards.
Even my craft room got a few decorations this year. My goal for next year is to have a theme for this tree and a little one upstairs. I never thought I would be a person with multiple trees, but it is just so much fun!

Merry Christmas

  1. I really enjoyed touring your home with its Christmas decorations! What a great eye you have for making things look pretty. I must admit, I am partial to stars, so that was my favorite part. Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
