I hope each and every one of you has a terrific holiday--and that it brings you what you need and want.
Today will be a bevy of activity: cleaning up, making tortiere and wrapping things last minute: but it will all be OK.
So, without further ado, this is the house all decked out for Christmas. Remember, my children took it upon themselves to almost every bit of it and I'm very grateful to them for getting it all done.
What you don't still have your pumpkins out on your front porch?
Immediately to your right as you enter are the cards on the wall.
The living room is on the left, of course.
Most of everything is concentrated at the far end.
the faux fireplace:
A few treasures on the mantle:
Ben/Caius made this in kindergarten, I believe.
and to the far right of the mantle, on the shelf, our creche:
My husband built the stable years ago when the kids used to put their plastic animals inside.
This is our only set.
My Mom has eleven.
On your way out of the living room, tucked in the corner, is this message:
The dining room is quite minimal.
I cleared out a cubby for this prize.
Emma/Aurelia won it in a draw at school.
The kitchen is quite low-key this year with just this garland.
I think it's a nice touch.
And that is that.
Thanks so much for dropping by.
