Come on in! Care for some eggnog?
There’s no place like home for the holidays. And we’d like to welcome you to ours this holiday season for our holiday tour.
Having only been in this home a year and a half, we don’t have a lot of experience decking these halls,
But little by little, it’s feeling more like home, and we’re figuring out where things seem like they want to situate themselves over the holiday season.
Since we have little ones at home, we really do almost everything for Christmas in all the most traditional ways. Lots of RED, lots of GREEN. Even down to the colored lights. We try and keep it looking like we remember our parents’ homes looking when we were young.
I adore homes with less traditional takes on holiday decorating, and someday, once the nest is a little less full, I have visions of ours going that same direction…
But not yet…and trust me, I’m trying to cherish the Christmas seasons we have while they are still young. Not always easy when the “gimmees” work their way into our December-dialect, but I do my best to carpe these diems.
Once in a while, I’ll give a little Christmas craft a go. Our “carolers” above were made by the kiddos out of toilet paper and paper towel rolls. I love them.
Peanuts Christmas has always been a favorite in my family. I grew up in an era when we all got excited for the “Christmas special” to come on network television so we could get our annual fix of Snoopy and the gang singing “loo loo loo” around the little scrawny Charlie Brown tree.
Some brilliant bloggers turned me onto this idea for falling snow with the cotton balls and fishing line, so I gave it a try this year to spruce up our Peanuts Dept. 56 display.
Even our guest room got a little holly and jolly.
Bessie appears happy with the seasonal flair.
There are lots of fantastic holiday decorators in the blogging world. I’m certainly not of that calibur, but the kids are happy with the changes and are eagerly anticipating all the holidays bring.
Hope that things are well in your own nest, and your brood is also anxious to enjoy the holiday season. Thanks for joining us for our little holiday tour.
