Christmas 2008

I'm not gonna lie....I haven't done much this year with the decorations--I've been busy with this little stocking stuffer that Santa brought at the end of October...



I'm also not gonna lie, I am using last years pictures, because, well because there's nothing new this year and because I've been busy with this...life with an infant and 2 year old--it's why I'm posting this at 2am. ;-)



Okay, onto the tour--I'm gonna say it again, I am not any type of homemaker, decorator or Martha Stewart protoge, but here is our humble abode.

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

Here is the outside of our house--my hubby LOVES to hang lights, he's almost obsessive about it.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 about to order new stockings from PB--for all four of us!
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!



Just a tree on a side table...



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


And so does Jordan, she plays with these about everyday. They're very lightweight...she shared with Hayden on this day--


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


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!

If you have an extra minute, please read about special friends of mine and their difficult time this Christmas. You can read about it here. Thanks!

You're funny posting last year's pics. Nothing wrong with that. :) I know you have a lot going on these days. ;)I also love your brick walls. Our first apt had a brick wall in the kitchen and it was my favorite thing about the apt. Merry Christmas!

Honey - - - you need not decorate AT ALL for Christmas when you have those two GORGEOUS children in the red and black Christmas outfits - - - just pose them in the living room for all to see. Preferably in that darling sissy kissing brother pose from your header. They may get just a TAD cranky as the holiday season wears on being "frozen" into that pose and all - - -but one simply cannot have EVERYTHING!!!!

Your whole house is adorable.

Thanks for sharing with all of us strangers - - - some stranger than others.

Merry Christmas

Your house looks amazing and your children are gorgeous.. I'm still trying to get through the list at BooMama's but I'm determined to do it before the New Year.

Happy Holidays!!
