Christmas Tour of Homes 2009

I love this Christmas carnival. It is one of my favorites!!

You get a small peak at the inside of some of your favorite bloggers homes during the holiday season and you also get the chance to check out some new site as well.

Another great perk...getting new fresh ideas for next year. I had never thought about decorating the light fixture in my dinning room until a few years ago I saw one and it looked awesome. So the next year I did a variation of it, it turned out fabulous.

Last year we had just gotten back in our house one week before Christmas from Hurricane Ike damage. I down scaled our decorating that year. We only did the tree and the mantle. I loved the simplicity of it. So this year I kept it simple again and only added a few other elements.

OK lets get this party I mean tour started.

Here is my Christmas tree.

Usually the only thing I do is the ribbon, garland, and the angel. The boys do all the ornaments. And if I do say so my self they do a great job. I wish I had a better picture of my tree skirt. I have a snowflake theme and the skirt has white flakes on red fabric. It matches our stockings.

Here is the fire place. It is one of my favorite areas. Just very simple, but I love it.

Next is my china cabinet. I just love the glitter boxes. I found them a Christmas store and wish I had bought more.

Here is the wreath I made to hang on the back door. It is the door we use the most and I wanted to some Christmas cheer as I entered my house.

And here is the other wreath I made to hang on the front door.

I hope you had great time wandering around my house and maybe even a got a few new ideas.

I pray you and your family have a Merry Christmas!
