Welcome to our Home for Christmas . . . . . .

This week I'm sharing our home for Christmas. 
We just returned from celebrating Christmas with our kids and granddaughter in Boise, Idaho. Is there anything better than that?!

Now, hubs and I are going to relax and enjoy the beauty of Christmas. Gifts have been bought, wrapped and delivered. How about some homemade cookies and hot cocoa by the fire . . . okay, we'll need to do some more baking . . . and I should send out some Christmas cards . . .  but, for now . . . 

Welcome to our home for Christmas. We are so glad you came by for a visit. 
Today I'm sharing our outdoor decorations.

The Front Porch



 Greeted by toy soldiers and cedar garland







[Learn how to make this wreath at upcoming wreath tutorial next week]



Caught our angel in her evergreen bird bath this morning covered with frost


A few pics from our White Christmas in 2008





Next week, come inside for a Victorian Cottage Christmas.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.
