The kids' tree in the foyer holds their own ornaments, as well as some of my favorites from years past...
In the den, Steve's tree holds his favorites.
I have new ornaments for the family tree this year.
But I kept the candles I have had for twenty six years. : )
We spend most of our time in the family room, so I like to keep all the Christmas movies, books, and games nearby.
Little wooden tables hold special pieces with different themes...
Like these precious little ones Madison brought me from Denmark.
The kitchen has touches of Christmas sprinkled about...
And across from the kitchen...the coziest spot in our home...
The hearth room is also where our little friend The Brownie lives. : )
Next to the hearth room...
The dining room...
Through the years, I have collected many sweet Santa decorations.
Every time I look at this collection, I smile.
You are never too old to believe in the magic. : )
Something else that makes me smile?
These new Christmas dishes I got this year...
I absolutely love them!
They are so pretty and well made.
And you know where I found them??
If you are looking for some special dishes, check online there.
They are very reasonably priced!
Some other special pieces I keep in my hutch and buffet...
Madison brought me the candle holder from Denmark, and the tins came from Nicolas' sweet mother Kirsten. Each of the past two years, she has sent me some delicious homemade Danish cookies!
Our kitchen table.
The old oak table that our family has gathered around to eat, visit, and play games for years.
So many memories. : )
Christmas touches in our room too...
Just to make cold winter evenings even more cozy.
Lastly, our little mudroom...
With a reminder that this is indeed the most wonderful time of the year.
Thank you for visiting our Christmas home, my friends.
I would love to stop by for a visit with you!
