Christmas Around Our House

I've been snapping pictures just so I could participate in this fun day!

This was Boomama's great idea! And guess what? She loves Diet Coke. :)





Welcome! Come on in!



These are new this year. I bought them at Gold Canyon Candle Co. I can't wait to light them.



I love Costco! Even their Poinsettias are BIG!



This Nativity is very special to our family. It was given to our parents in 1972 and Nancy gave it to me several years ago. I think my Dad's parents gave it to them and I still have the original box from Marshall Fields. Dave is very kind to allow me to keep the box as it is in terrible shape and should be replaced. He understands.

I'll post more later but I must go now.

UPDATE I have time to add a few more.
Enjoy. And thanks for the comments.















Now I usually don't have fresh flowers around my house but I bought these to have for my dinner party on Saturday night. They are sitting on my kitchen table, can you see the white board in the background? :)

Oooh! I really like those candles. I bet they will cast some pretty shadows when you light them.

That nativity is precious.

I love how you showed special things not just room pictures. I think I will try that.

I recognized the purple robe from the nativity scene. How lovely to see it again. Thank you for showing us your home!

you are clearly Nancy's favorite twin for getting the Nativity...remember getting baby Jesus stuck in the loft, I'm sure that hasn't happened with your children!!!
I love seeing it at your house every year, but mostly I love the smell!!! Do you sisters remeber how it smells?

Donna Boucher said...

I do not know how it smells. I'll bet one wiff would bring it back tho :o)
