The kids helped pick out the tree, aren't they festive?
Here, a little better?
We've never had a window we could put the tree in so I was glad it fit here. You can see it right when you walk in the front door and I can enjoy it from the couch while I catch up on my mid season finales.
I love everything about sitting in the room. The light, the tree, the fireplace...
My mom made these stockings for the kids. It took her almost a year on each of them, but I am so glad she did it. They'll have them forever now and its pretty special.
Even the couch got a little Christmas cheer this year, and I'm not talking about the wine I drink there when the kids go down for the night.
Our dining room and my home coffee bar
Several of my windows have snowflakes hanging in them for some added sparkle.
I found these mercury glass snowflake lights and had to have them.
Leaving the dining room and heading into the kitchen
The dish washing window got in on the festivities. Snowflakes make washing dishes not as bad and occasionally little bubbles will float up from the dish soap, then its a real party.
My small collection of Santa pics are on the sill. Now that I have space to put them out I am going to have to round up the rest -minus last year because the kids were terrified of the jolly fella and refused pictures with him.
What's the limit on strands of garland inside your home? I may be pushing it...it takes about 10 min to unplug everything before bed at night.
Some people make Christmas cookies, this year I made Christmas pillows.
I walk by the tree a thousand times a day and never tire of looking at it.
That about rounds it out folks. Thanks for stopping by.
