Welcome to my home! I wish I could say that if you walked in the door you would smell mulling spices and sugar cookies baking. What you would actually smell is our rapidly drying-out Christmas tree. At least it's pretty.
I'm in no shape to go to bunco tonight, so while my girlfriends are tossing the dice and eating Becca's homemade chili, I'm joining BooMama's Christmas Tour of Homes. It's a little late in the day, but better late than never. So I'm sitting here with a tub of butterscotch haystacks to give me the mental discipline I need to focus. Brain food, if you will.
Here are my hubby and my son beginning the search for our tree.
It didn't take long for hide and seek to begin.
Later that day we went to our city's Christmas parade. Every parade needs two Santa's, right?
Here's my dining room.
You may notice that...
-There are no balls on the tree. That is because of the toddler. They are in a glass thing on the table and in a bowl on the bookshelf.
-The stockings are hung from the window. We have a chimney, but no fireplace. It's hidden in the walls somewhere.
-We have no tree topper. I'm not sure what happened to our last one. Thankfully, Jackson made one at school out of paper and it is perched happily at the top of our tree. I think he brought it home after I took this picture. I guess you couldn't see it anyway because of the light thing.
These are some of my favorite ornaments. Every year when we go to Jackson Hole for Thanksgiving, I buy a few new ones at Moose Be Christmas. One day I'd like to have a mountain-themed tree.
These three were from our first Christmas.
This is from our second Christmas and it's my fave.
This is our Compassion child, Marlon.
Curt picked out this ornament the Thanksgiving before Jackson was born. It's a daddy bear with a baby bear on his shoulders.
This one's from that same year, when I couldn't snowmobile because I was expecting Jackson.
Baby's First Christmas. That picture was actually taken in the summer. You can see that he had a little too much sun that day.
Jackson's new ornament for this year.
My door is so beautiful and festive that I couldn't bear to put a wreath on it. It looks so great with our Christmas lights. I'm obsessed.
If you were here in my home, I'd serve you spiced hazelnut croissants and some hot tea. I don't have a recipe for the croissants, but you can't get them here. They're amazing. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a merry Christmas!
