Welcome to our Home for Christmas

Christmas Greetings My Friends and Welcome to our home for Christmas.  It’s warm and cozy inside, so come on in and join us as I share our home with you for Christmas.  You may have already seen some of our home but I thought I would share everything in one post and I’ll start in the family room.

The Christmas apron was my Mom’s and she would wear this apron every Christmas.   011

The tobacco stick sled I made last year is still part of the Christmas decor in the front entry way.

The Nativity is a family heirloom that was my parents and I can remember it being placed under our Christmas tree when I was living at home.  Although I don’t place it under my tree, it is still a part of my Christmas.  001

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed seeing our home for Christmas. 

Christmas is God’s gift to us.  May its blessing bring you joy and peace the whole year through.
