Our Holiday Home

Okay....
prepare yourself for a
llooonnnggg post!

Que the
eggnog,
Christmas music,
and
good cheer....

Here from
front door
to
back yard
is our
Holiday
Home


Our front door


The very tiny entry way



My favorite Christmas guys..I forget how big they actually are...
we had a little boy walk through the front door this weekend and
he almost didn't come in...the big nutcracker is a little scary I guess.
Maybe he needs to not be right in the front door next year! Poor Harold


The living room and part of the breakfast/dining area
The Mantle



Top left is our family tree..i've been collecting those ornaments for 13 years now..
bottom left is the two trees you see when you first walk in the house.
I decided long ago that the meaning of decadence wasn't diamonds
and chocolate to me...
but two matching trees....how positively decadent.





Four trees in one view...
well sorta...one just got cropped out of the picture

The new addition this year is the Department 56 Dickens's Village..
my Uncle and Aunt passed it down to me. 
I'm pretty sure it's going to be our new obsession..i'm already looking for new houses.
The kids and I had so much fun putting it up.  It already feels like a yearly tradition.
Love you so very much
Uncle Donnie and Aunt Janie..
thank you for letting us carry on the tradition


Dining room/breakfast area tree and Candy Garland in Kitchen

Clockwise...our daughter's tree..
didn't she do a good job putting all the ornaments on herself
Our son's room..
another view of her tree
The bathroom/tiki bar tree....
it resides in the bathroom for now because
 our puppy/moose doesn't know how to not destroy it yet



Views from the master bedroom...believe it or not
there are actually a LOT of ornaments on that tree..
it just doesn't look like it in this picture.
Perhaps I need more ornaments...
Target here I come



And finally
Night and Day pictures
from the glass house.



Thank you all for taking a tour of our house this Christmas....
now I must be off for there are

cookies to be baked
babies to be kissed
presents to be wrapped
birthdays to be celebrated
and
friends and family to be
held dear and close to our hearts

From my family
to yours
Merry Christmas
