Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Welcome to a Christmas Tour of Homes!

BooMamaChristmasTour

Come on in!




After-Christmas Deals from Target

Our "old" tree in the dining room this year

The staircase

The Dining Room Tree, aka The Kids' Tree

A few of my favorites from the kids' tree

The Pink Pig- it's an Atlanta tradition

Another Pink Pig- Priscilla

The Dining Room Table- keeping things simple

IKEA bird clip

The Butler's Pantry


Kitchen Chandelier

The "real" tree by day


And by night


Santa from The Biltmore

I'm loving rustic/glitter ornaments right now


Tribute to Park City, Utah- see you soon!

More rustic/glitter


Might be my most favorite!


The built-in decorating nightmare

The other built-in decorating nightmare

I love this "chocolate" Santa!

My gardening angel

The Daddy's stocking


H.J.'s stocking


The Mama's stocking- with A.E.'s on the right


The crazy dog- his first Christmas


Suggestions for this guy? He needs a face? A hat? What???

And the one picture I'm missing is our nativity. It's a Little People nativity. We need a big, ol' set that's got a baby Jesus who can come out of the manger until Christmas morning. Any ideas?
Want to see more homes decked out in their Christmas splendor? Go see Rhoda at Southern Hospitality, We are THAT Family, Kimba at A Soft Place to Land and Julia at Hooked on Houses. And don't forget BooMama!
MERRY CHRISTMAS, YA'LL!

I love your pumpkin snowman!! What a great idea! I collect snowmen, so I will have to copy your idea next year : ) As far as what to do with him, you could just paint a face on him and he would be totally cute!

Love that chocolate santa too! Somewhere I shop has them and I always I need to buy that.

Phidippides, Fleet Feet or Big Peach Running Co are all good places to get shoes. I just started following Jeff Galloway's training plan that incorporates walking breaks ~ suppose to help build your endurance and prevent injury. I am hoping to do a half in 2009 but March is too early for me =)

Loving the trans-seasonal pumpkin snowman! Maybe use red heart shapes for his facial features and you can carry him into Valentine's? Your decorations are lovely, fun and thanks for letting us all come by to visit! Merry Christmas

Keetha said...

I simply adore your "entrance" photos. I knew - - - even before I came in, that I would LOVE your home.

The "narrow" perspective of the first picture gives the impression of a brownstone.

Merry Christmas

Mindy said...

Your home is very welcoming.

PS I have a chocolate lab...that only a momma could love!

Shellee said...

love the simple centerpiece...it is gorgeous!

Aspiemom said...

You must enjoy your home so much at Christmastime because it is just so beautiful. You did a great job decorating it and also on the pictures!

I live near the TN border and spend a lot of time there, so I am familiar with many UT fans!

I'm a Christian, also.

JudyBug said...

I love all of the pictures. The one of the dog with Santa was just too cute. I was afraid Boudreaux, our cockapoo, might not like Santa too much so we didn't try.

Your daughters are just precious and I love those little blue dresses.

Many Blessings for a wonderful Christmas to you and your family!

Everything just kept getting more beautiful! Thank you for sharing your home with us! I loved the glitter ornaments too but I'm afraid I have no suggestions for your snowman. I think just a hat? Beautiful!

Merry Christmas!

I love your home. I especially got a kick out of the pink pigs...maybe because I love Atlanta. Merry Christmas!

We were recently in Atlanta for a quick trip and my girls both enjoyed riding the Pink Pig for the first time.
