So Woman on a Mission posted some lovely pictures of her home decorated up for Christmas on her "Coffee, God and Me" Blog. (Clicking on the title of this post will take you to her Blog.) She asked readers to do the same. I am posting some photos of my place in return.
The photo to the left isn't one of them. It is of my kids taken on Christmas 14 years ago. (Hard to believe.) Their ages then were 16, 14 and 12.
The tree. It was in the other corner of the room until it fell over. Now it is here.
I put on the lights. My wife does the trimming. That is "Holiday Inn" with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire playing on the TV.
The fireplace from the entry way.
The mantle. My wife collects nutcrackers. The picture is an Andrew Wyeth. We have a yellow lab like in the painting.
More nutcrackers and my wife's ceramic village in the secretary desk cabinet.
Still some more nutcrackers in the hallway.
Top of the entertainment center, another Andrew Wyeth painting.
Hutch across from the dining room table.
The dining room.
The full dining room. The tower sticking up in the lower left corner is a cat scratching post.
The Santa in a hot air balloon hanging from the rafter. My kids high school graduation portraits are on the wall behind.
