Christmas In Our House

Welcome!  Come on in and look around.  I had hoped to have all my Christmas decorating done by now, but life has gotten in the way once again.  And when work, family, and sick kids beckon, all else stands still – waiting for a lull in the storm.  Which is a funny way to say it, considering we had a huge storm here in Minnesota over the weekend.

I’m so glad I got my porch decorations all up when I did, because the next day it looked like this.

And this picture was taken after only about 7″ on snow had fallen.  I think we ended up with around 15″.







Brrr.  Let’s go inside where it’s warm.

I added a little more blue to our main tree in the living room.

 This cute guy is part of a collection that belonged to my mom.  He fits here perfectly.

More touches of Christmas around the house.

I may try to finish this week, but I may wait until my daughter comes home for break.  Then we can finish up the decorating as a family.  In the meantime, I plan on lots of Christmas movies, Christmas songs, and of course, Christmas cookies! :) Thanks for visiting.

    Hi! I am simply hopping around looking for Christmas decorating blogs and happened to see the contest at Nest and found your blog.

    I just wanted to say that your Christmas decor is simply delightful. I really like the pretty ‘NOEL’ sign by your front door and love, love, love the white sweaters on your candle and branches! The white ceramic owl is the perfect finishing touch for your vignette. Your beautiful tree and the way you gussied up your mantle is a pleasure to look at.

    Thanks for submitting your photos. Really lovely… Happy New Year!
