My Christmas Home

T'was the night before Christmas
When all through the house... :)

Oh I LOVE a decorated Christmas home!
I am missing it now as we packed it all up last week and now everything feels so naked!
I wouldn't mind having Christmas up all year long!
Jolyn, these pics are for you since I packed it up before your visit :)

This little Christmas village is Luke's favorite. He loves to run the train around and
around it and rearrange the people all day long.

We love to choose a new ornament for our tree whenever we go on a trip.
It is really fun to unwrap them each year and reflect on all of the fun memories we have made over the years.

This year: We bought this glass bell in Valletta, Malta. A small island in the Mediterranean, south of Italy.

This was from a wonderful week long visit to Disney World over Spring Break with Grandma & Grandpa Osborne.

Gotta love a mistletoe - one more excuse to steal a kiss!
With all of the construction going on in our home last year, we were not able to even put up a tree until
the week of Christmas. ( I tried to make up for this by leaving it up almost until Valentine's :)
I promised Ashley that THIS year she could have her very own tree in the playroom.

Isn't this a fun advent calendar? My sis-in-law Pepper gave this to us when we visited them at Thanksgiving.
It had candy in each space that we ate each day and replaced with these cute little ornaments as we
counted down the days until Christmas. I love the vintage Coca-Cola crate! Way cool!
