My halls are decked

Hi there! Come on in! Would you like some coffee? Coke? Vodka? Chocolate? A taco? Help yourself!



This is my Advent Wreath. It's on a table when you first enter my home. I actually had to make a wreath because I could not find one in a store near me. Not in Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Lowe's or Michael's. Pretty sad, I think.


This is my home from the outside.

This is my most favorite wreath on my front door.
Enjoying your vodka, it's good isn't it?

Even prettier all lit up. You're getting pretty "lit up" yourself drinking that vodka so quickly. Slow down, Lushy, save some for the rest of the visitors.

Our tree. A douglas fir. My first real tree.

During the day.

Our Nativity Set. My MIL bought me the set for our first Christmas after we got married. It had the stable, Mary, Joseph, Jesus and the angel. Every year she gives us another piece for Christmas. I love that. What's that? Where's Jesus? oh, the dog ate him. just kidding. We put him away until Christmas morning. Here, have some popcorn.

Better take a sip of vodka after seeing this picture. This is where I hang my cards. Right below the pretty vent in our hallway.

Front entryway table again.

No mantel for the stockings. Just a wall. And my children.

A wall in our living. You dropped some popcorn. Please pick it up.


Anna made a prayer countdown bell at preschool.


Wording on the bell.


Anna's stocking that she made at preschool, placed on her bedroom door.


Above my TV. Thanks for coming by. The cost of the tour is $7/person, please pay my children at the door!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Beth,
    Your house looks beautiful..inside and out. I think my favorite is that wreath on the front door though...I've never seen one like it. I also envy the fact that your house appears to have very little clutter in it, I can't say the same for mine!

    Beautiful!! Love your decorations - although I have never heard of an Advent wreath. I'm still working on my "tour" (yes, I'm lame)

    $7 isn't a bad price for hot chocolate & a taco, winning combination.
