Holiday Home Tour
Come on in! I've been waiting for you...Here is your hot chocolate...let's take the tour! I know you think you've see all this before..but not so fast...I got some new balls on my Xmas tree! and I am desperate for a new blog post.
Let's start in the living room with my tree....no one lays a finger on this tree. I don't even like my kids looking at this tree. Buster already broke one of the ornaments this year.
A close up:
And if you turn to the left you will see my entry decor.. My mom bought these knitted stockings for me last year. I love them:
Now, into the family room where we have the...wait for it...family tree! My kids help me decorate it. Don't look too close. I had to appease my children with the PBK stockings.
Check out these big balls...hehe. I found them at Taipan. I obviously have a thing for red and white polka dots. These balls were sold out and I had to drive to Orem to get them. Truth be known, I would have driven a lot further..I love them so much.
And turn around. What is that? My hutch. Probably my favorite piece of furniture. I try to cluster my Santa stuff here:
In the kitchen, I have my Xmas plates:
And candy jars (these are my only claim to fame..they have been pinned thousands of times on pinterest:
One of my favorite things about this season is displaying the cards from family and friends:
Let's go back to Sammie's room. Remember this candy tree? I am anal about it because it is flocked and it loses more flocking each year. I used my lamanze breathing and let her help decorate it.
Back to my bedroom..this is where the magic happens.. (I hate how they always always say that on MTV cribs...get a new line!) Just kidding. We're not going in my messy bedroom.
Let's go into the boy's room. The sports tree. Ryan decorated this one:
And finally out front. You saw my elaborate Halloween display (wink wink) I decided to keep it simple for Christmas. My sole piece of outside decor:
And my new star wreath..waiting for my friend Heidi to come adorn it with ribbon..hint hint.
And of course, my favorite thing in my house...these four! Their excitement about Christmas is palpable. Ryan talks non stop about reindeer, Santa, and elves. I love it.
Now I am coming over for a tour of your house. Don't stress, I will let myself in. Just leave the Fernwood mints out on the table!
