Christmas 2007....

Christmas Tour of Homes

Hello!! Welcome to our home!! I do not profess to be any type of homemaker, decorator or Martha Stewart protoge, but here is our humble abode. It serves us well and I do a little with the Christmas decor--but nothing too special.

P.S. Please leave comments!! I love 'em so...

This is our house in the dark ---my husband loves to hang lights. He does a good job!!
And here it is with some light----Come on in!!
Our tree....in our den. I love our indoor brick walls--
Christmas card holder....I love Christmas CARDS!!
Mine and BJ's stockings...I am still in search of the perfect one for Jordan--
We have a gas fireplace insert...here's my little snow village on top of the fireplace... more fireplace...
up close snow village people....
Some of my favorite ornaments.... Bowling Santa, for BJ....

Jordan's 1st Christmas....so precious!



Us, our 1st Christmas as a married couple....this is the picture we had printed our on wedding invitations, which makes the ornament so special!

Our kitties used to give us heck with our tree!! They're older now and they don't really bother it anymore...thanks goodness!!


Just a pretty ball that I like. I used to have a whole set of these, but those cats...

Another pretty....

Just a tree on a side table...

I have three of these in my den window---I love them so much!!!

Nativity tea light holder---it's another favorite piece!


Just a plate on my entertainment center....

more of my entertainment center...

some lights in the swag---you can see the tops of the santa's in the window too...

And just because I can....Jordan and Santa!!!

Thank you for stopping by to take a peek into my home. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Please take time to enjoy those you love this season!

How did you get the lights in the swag like that? It's beautiful. I'm going to have to borrow that idea. I like your village too. Thanks for the tour!

Cute decor; I especially like your village! :)

Kimberly said...

Absolutely beautiful and your photography skills makes everything look even better. I love your indoor brick as well. Its a shame that Christmas decorations can't stay up all year long.

You home is so nice, & looks great all decorated for Christmas. Little Jordon is so lucky to have you & B.J as her parents. You can see how much she is loved, & I just laugh myself silly when I see the pictures you have taken of her getting mad & crying. I know she soon forgets what she got mad about but you captured the moment on film, it just makes me laugh. Keep taking the photos, she will grow up so fast.

i LOVE your Christmas card holder and your village! very nice!

The Holloway Family said...

Your house looks great! I need one of those Christmas card holders--mine just end up piled up on a table, even though I have all intentions of displaying them neatly. My husband also enjoys hanging lights--they were up a week before Thanksgiving this year!!

Mandy said...

I love your baby's and your wedding picture ornaments...how sweet! You have a lovely home and a lovely family! Thanks for sharing with us! Blessings to you all!

Dawn said...

Ooooo what a nice and Christmas-y home!!! I had fun taking a tour...thank you!!!

I too have a little village set going...no little trees though...guess I will get those next year. Most of my villages are from the Dollar Tree and I am content with that.

I thought about saving some money and start collecting the villages from Hallmark, we'll see...still got 12 months till next Christmas...LOL.

Love the tree too!

Merry Christmas from Dawn in Germany!

Everything is lovely! Merry Christmas!

Dianne said...

Merry Christmas! Lights in the swag-great idea. I like your special ornaments too.

BJ said...

Very nice! I really like the village on the fireplace. Merry Christmas! (P.S. how sad is it that I'm commenting on Christmas Eve...we're all sick, and kids are in bed. Baby's not feeling well, and nursing a lot. So I'm nursing and surfing on Christmas Eve.)

The decorations are probably down and I'm still touring! LOL Thanks for sharing. I like the scrapbook page of your daughter.
