Tour My Christmas Home

I've finally finished with the inside Christmas decorations. Marty is planning to put the lights up outside tomorrow. I didn't put out everything this year, but I did manage to put out most of it. I was tempted to only put up the trees, but decided the Nativities and Santas needed to be set up as well.




Hung on the front door is this wreath I made a few years ago. (There's a funny story of the day I made this wreath and each year I hang it I'm reminded of the attack of the bees attracted to the cinnamon scented pine cones I used. Now I only hang the wreath INSIDE, not outside)

In the living room you'll find many Christmas decorations, including this Nativity displayed on the entertainment center. I used to sell Home Interiors and purchased this set then.

At the end of the entertainment center I always perch this Santa on one of the candle holders and wrap both in more blush poinsettias.

This is an old window my grandpa gave me that I painted a snowman scene on, accompanied by our stockings (I still haven't located Marty's stocking so an extra was put in its place until I figure out where I put it!)

The dining room is where I put my red decorations, including most of my santas. I put another tree in here with all my apples and gingerbread man ornaments. My kitchen and dining room are decorated with apples and gingerbread men year round so there are always plenty of things to put on that tree! The giant santa was a gag gift from my mom a couple of years ago. He fits in quite nicely with all the other santas and red decorations!

You are all so sweet. Yes, Jaimie, that's the San Antonio Riverwalk. There's nothing like the Riverwalk at Christmas!

WOW!, I saw the window that you had painted in your home with all the snowy Christmas scenery. It is beautiful. I wish I had one. I wonder if someone would do that for me if I found an old window?;=) LOL. Just kidding. We love you and are always praying for you and your family. I won't see u again until after Christmas, so have a Merry and safe Christmas. God Bless

Happy Birthday, Jesus

I assure you I haven't forgotten you, Richard. I still have your window. I hope to get some painting done on some of my upcoming days off....including a light bulb santa for someone who broke his.....
