Along with it being the most wonderful time of the year, I know it can also be the most busy time of the year. I'm so happy you're here and hope that this little tour will give you a five minute reprieve from your holiday "to do" list.
Feel free to linger, I'll get the coffee (tea? hot chocolate?) started.
Please come in!
Welcome to the living room, where we've added
just a couple pops of green in this mostly white room...
Our front porch wraps around the living room...
The rest of our Christmas porch can be seen here.
Back inside, a wreath has been placed around the antlers in the entryway and angel wings have been hung from the old farmhouse door in the hallway.
We're going simpler this year.
This is the first year we've hung stockings from the stairway. I added a touch of eucalyptus to the fresh garland and couldn't resist a light dusting of spray snow. (Sometimes we can do more than just sit around "dreaming of a white Christmas!" :)
We recently created a family gallery wall along the stairway.
You can see more pictures of the gallery wall here.
Just a few Christmas decorations in the dining room for now.
I don't know about you, but our house tends to turn into a workshop of sorts leading up to Christmas...wrapping gifts, baking and finishing school projects.
And then there are the daily tasks like cooking and laundry.
(Is it just me or does it feel like some days, leading up to Christmas, dinner should be optional? I mean, every night?! Thank goodness for Costco pizza.)
Given the December "workshop" effect, I wanted to keep this room light and airy, without too much clutter.
The dining room will become more festive once the table
is set for our family Christmas Eve dinner.
More pictures of the dining room can be found here.
Small tin advent buckets are hung from the chicken nesting boxes. Each morning (except the first because I forgot ;), our three sons check for a little surprise as we count down the days till Christmas.
See more family room pictures here.
A couple weeks ago, I shared these DIY boxwood wreaths in our kitchen.
It was also fun adding some "merry" to the coop...

Our kids had a
More pictures of the cookie garland and hot chocolate station can be seen here.
Merry Christmas from our home to yours!
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn...
(O Holy Night)
Hope you have a wonderful day!
