I made myself wait until now to do a “Christmas Tour”. Mainly because my mom and sister had a fit that my Christmas Decorations went up before Thanksgiving. But now it is December and socially acceptable to be decorated for Christmas! So here is my “Christmas Home Tour”.
Our Christmas Tree
Our Christmas Tree
We purchased this new tree after Christmas last year (I had been using garage-saled trees for the past 11 years and they finally fell apart. Literally fell apart. Limbs coming off and everything). So Nik purchased this beautiful tree for me! One problem…it is 9 feet tall. Our home in Texas had 12 foot ceilings, so not a problem. This home has somewhere close to 9 foot ceilings. In order to get this tree to work, I had to bend the top branch all the way down - so no room for a tree topper! But I made it work with a bow made out of ribbon.
By the tree I have a little Santa Clause
The other side of the tree is a reading basket and some of Jaxen’s stuffed animals in his rocker.
On our trunk I have some snowmen, a Christmas printable, and a wall hanging
Jaxen’s Play Room
He has a little tree in his room too -
on it we will hang the Jesse Tree Christmas Ornaments
And he has his little snowman-drummer - he loves it!
Our Sitting Room
On our mantel I have a lit tree, stockings and our beautiful nativity
Our bookshelves have a village set, pictures and a jar of ornaments
Our door going upstairs has a cute little “Noel” hanging from it
I have an iron tree that was given to me - I love it!
And a fresh pine wreath - it is beautiful and smells so good
This is Jaxen’s Activity Bench
I found a great way to hang cards - wrap foam board in Christmas paper and put your cards on it.
It looks a little slim right now…I’m waiting on Christmas Cards (hint hint)!!
And a few little baskets to keep me organized
Lit garland on our big window
A saying from one of my favorite movies - makes me smile while I cook!
Christmas candle and picture
Above my sink
A cute little Christmas tree (don’t you like my red and green apples?!)
And a snowman cookie jar
And that’s all for our home Christmas Tour!
No - I don’t decorate bathrooms or bedrooms - I think Nik might shoot me if I did! Ha Ha.
Oh, and we were supposed to decorate outside (I have all the stuff even)
but we don’t have a power outlet! Bummer, huh?
I hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit of our house this Christmas Season.
I know I love seeing everyone else’s decorations (hint hint - if you blog!).
