So, I was late for officially getting in on Boomama’s Christmas Tour of Homes, but I have had fun looking through all of the homes. You should definitely check them out.

Here’s the wreath that hangs on the front door. Sorry it’s at an angle, I wasn’t about to go outside this morning in my pj’s in the freezing cold! Plus we live in the parsonage.. so I’m not sure it’s appropriate to go outside in my pj’s anyways. It needs a bow or something at the top but I don’t do bows.. my mom makes all of mine!

And here is our ‘skinny’ tree. In our previous house we didn’t have much room so we bought this skinny little thing. I would love to upgrade one day.. but not this year.

Yep, my mom made that bow….

Here are a few of my favorite ornaments:

This one is from Christmas 2005. I was about 3 months pregnant around Christmastime and my mom and dad gave us this “Parent’s-to-Be” ornament.

This little sweet ornament is from last year, Luke’s first Christmas. A very talented woman at the church where R and I met made it. It has Luke’s name hand painted and his little handprint on it.

Here is the hutch in the dining room. I am not one to take down everything and replace it with all Christmas things. I just don’t have that kind of decorations, I’ve only been decorating my house for 4 seasons… so I’ve got some years of decorations to collect! The stocking is my hubby’s stocking from his childhood.

Here is a little closer look….

This is the other corner of the dining room with my mini tree. I hope to one day have enough gingerbread/candy ornaments to fill a large tree. And that little fellow in the mismatched pj’s (and notice the black rain boots that he wore with his fireman Halloween costume, on the wrong feet mind you) is the reason why there are limited decorations at hands reach.

And here is an up close pic of some of the gingerbread/candy ornaments on the small tree, I just LOVE them!

I have a few other things out but these are my favorites. Thanks for stopping by.. and I’m so glad that it was a virtual visit. Because today my house is a mess!! I’ve got to shake this cold so I can do some cleaning! Hope you didn’t catch anything while you were here! πŸ˜‰
