Decking the Halls....Christmas House Tour


Christmas preparations are under way at our house.  
I usually try to get an early start decorating so I can pace myself through the hustle and bustle of the holiday season
(so as not to get too stressed out.)

Our house is totally 
decked out.  
I'd like to tell you that there is a lot of glitter and sparkle here.
But the truth is....
Our Christmas decor is best described as

This little sleigh always adorned my grandma's
kitchen table.  For me, it holds a treasure trove
of memories.

....with hints of BURLAP....



Our tree is the 
Centerpiece of our home.  

I don't know about you, 
but I love all Christmas trees!

Our tree top is a bit unusual.  
But that's okay,
'cause we're a bit unusual, too!

Our grandkids enjoy the 
Little People Nativity
that's under the tree.

It gets rearranged every time they visit :)

Hot chocolate anyone?  
Vintage mugs and a jar full of  marshmallows..

                                               The old  "spring wreath"
is now a Christmas wreath.

And we can't forget to go outside to see the outdoor decorations....

More burlap and antlers!

Well, there you have it.  I hope you enjoyed the tour.

But more than anything, I hope you take time to consider the reason for this beautiful season.  
It's more than
presents and bows... 
more than decorations and trees,
or cookies,
or parties....

It's about a baby-
born to save the world.

“Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews?
We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
