Christmas Tour of Homes

This is my first Christmas Tour of Homes.
Let us start with our front door.

Coming in from the front door,
you come across the first of our Christmas trees.
Keeping the candy canes on has been
much of a challenge.

Also, in the foyer is this Nativity scene
that has been in my husband's family
a long time.
I think it is beautiful.

Here is our mantel in our family room
with another one of our trees.
I know all the tunes to the Hallmark santas.
The twins love them.
Last year we were unable to decorate the trees,
the twins had too much fun stripping them.
We just put lights on them,LOL!
This year also has been a challenge,
but funny too.

This is our tree by our kitchen table.
This is my favorite tree.
It has all of our handmade ornaments
and ornaments handed down from
our families.
Our kitchen table is simply decorated
with a table runner and our advent candles.
This is our work horse table.
And with toddlers I mean work horse table.

Well, just a little glance into our Christmas home.
This picture is from one of our porch doors.
I hope all have a Merry Christmas.
Thank you for stopping by.
Many blessings.

Your house is gorgeous! I love the trees. Ours is in our living room and I love to get up early and sit by the lights to read the Bible and journal.
