Here is our Christmas Tree. See Santa on the top? He keeps our spirits bright.
Here are some of my favorite ornaments
a 2003 Adoption ornament
The first year we became a family. I cried at the ornament stand in the mall when saying our new daughter's name. What a weenie! :)
The red bull is DH's Chinese Zodiac from China. I am the Rat and Kelsey is the Rooster
This is our fireplace. We love to light fires in the evening, it make our house feel warm and cozy. I particularly love our stockings. DH's is green, mine is cranberry and our daughter's is the green/cranberry combo. it just felt right to have them. I also love the Baker Santa guarding the room. Can you believe when we bought our house 7 years ago, the bricks were all painted white? I spent 6 weeks removing/scraping the paint down to the antique bricks you see here.
I have a lot of Christmas collections, but two that I MUST put out are my collections of snowmen/women and my Santa collection.
The snowmen/women grace the dining room buffet.
The Santas like to mix it up in my bookcase on the 2nd floor
Here are some close-ups
Don't they look festive hanging out? They greet me every morning as I stumble out of my room
I try to bring a little Christmas to almost every room of the house.
This is my Christmas Card tree. I just got it and love it! I am thinking I might leave it up year 'round because it looks like a sculpture to me (minus the cards of course)
This is my reason for enjoying the holidays!
I even had my own Christmas miracle today, read the previous post to learn what happened!
Thanks for stopping by, I love company!
