Christmas Decorations

Welcome to our home!!  I wanted to share pictures to show our home as it is decorated for the Christmas season.  I was in a "less is more" mood this year..... Sweet and simple was the overall theme! Thanks for visiting!
Seth loves the Snow Village in our foyer!  

My first piece was given to me by my mother about 12 years ago - The Starbucks coffee shop!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care.....


One of my favorite Radko ornaments. 

Presents!! My sister, Anita, laughs at me because I wrap all of my presents in similar paper.  I have been "theme" wrapping for years!  This year it is red and white with a little bit of green.  I've had silver themes, black and white with red accents, brown paper with brightly colored chiffon ribbon......

This nativity scene is on the display cabinet in our breakfast room.
I think I have ornaments displayed in a bowl or vase in at least three rooms in the house. 
This sweet tree is in the guest bedroom. This little bedroom is pink and green and very prissy!
Happy little snowmen!  

Love, love, love this whimsical picture!  It was a gift for me from my dear friend and "unofficial sister", Lynda, for Christmas this year. 
Precious memories - Seth made this darling plate in preschool!
 May we always remember the true reason we celebrate Christmas - Happy Birthday, Jesus!

A glimpse into the dining room - the china is "Hollylujah" by Gail Pittman.  

A beaded garland was secured to make the centerpiece.

I hope you have enjoyed our home.  I will try to post a picture of the entire tree - so far the light has not been cooperating, or perhaps I need a new camera!  Sounds like a wonderful  Christmas present idea..... Oh, Jon....!


  1. Love the pictures! I think there were alot of people in the "less is more" category and I was one of them. Your table is beautiful! Tell your sister you are not the only one who coordinates her gift wraping paper. Tell her I have been doing it for years. It is always red, white and lime green. However, next year I think I want to do craft paper with different colored ribbons...maybe. Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas!

  2. Lisa I love reading your blog! I can see the thought and love you put into every single ornament, decoration, and even the gift wrapping! LOVE is the theme of your home no matter the color. Your family is so lucky :)
    Have a very Merry Christmas! Keep Blogging!
