Christmas Tour of Homes 2009

Here is my Christmas House tour. Hope you like it. Wish I could have done more but with a baby due any day now, it makes it really hard to get to creative!


Christmas Tree in our entry way

Family Christmas Tree in our dining room

With lights on

Garland around our back door

Just a display in our dining room. It's usually more of a beach theme, with shells etc.

Mantel. The wording on the mirror says
"Because Someone We Love Is In Heaven there's a little bit of HEAVEN in our home." This is in honor of our baby that we lost last year. Makes me smile every time I see it.

Just another picture of our mantel along with the actual fireplace, that we don't even use for firewood, we put candles in it and light them up...so pretty

Close up of my daughter's stocking with whom she wants to share with her soon to be little brother. I love her spirit!

Join me in the Christmas Tour of Homes. I would love to see yours.

I love it all...don't understand the shells as I live in Canada but maybe I should decorate with them to help me feel warmer?
