Our Home at Christmas

I wanted to share with you a few of my Christmas decorations.  Some you have seen and some you haven’t……Enjoy! 

I’ll start in our family room.

Two of my favorite Christmas ornaments…the Silent Night Christmas ball has been in our family for many many years.  My Mom had it on her tree as a little girl.  It’s the only one left and I’ve had it for about 25 years.  The second is the heart.  It is our  first Christmas ornament together as husband and wife.  I also have Christmas balls with all of our children’s and grandson’s names on them. 




Our grandsons’ stockings are hung with care in hopes that Santa will be coming here. 


I love my old world Santas.  047

This too has been in our family for a very long time.  It was my grandparents and I was the blessed one to have received it.
