My House- Part Six- A Christmas Tour!

Welcome to my home, dressed up for the holidays!  I'm posting this as part of the Nester's Christmas Tour of Homes!  Before you proceed I have to let you know... I have a five month old and a potty training 2 and a half year old.  I LOVE decorating for the holidays, so that was a priority... but in my mind, twinkle lights camouflage a multitude of messes, as do close up pictures, hahaha...






This little guy never knows where he may find himself, but this year he's ended up on this chair.  I'm enjoying him alongside this pillow!


These are hand made by my mother-in-law and are replicas of the original family heirlooms (made of out toilet paper rolls- yes I said heirlooms!) that reside at Paul's childhood home.  Aren't they sweet??  You have to watch them, though, sometimes I find them in some compromising positions, but I'll keep it family friendly for the blog...

Even the kitchen gets in on the fun!


Love this little Santa door hanger...

Charlie's room!

He's even made a few of his own decorations this year...

I bought this little candle tree several years ago at Target... I like it, but just never know where to put it!  This year it finds itself in the bathroom.  Not sure how I feel about it there...

There's a fun little penguin rug for the winter in here too right now, which, along with the tree, makes all our hours spent in the bathroom lately (potty training, remember?), just a little more cheery.


Here's our room... just a simple wreath hung over the bed with a push pin... so easy, but so merry!

Merry Christmas!  Hope you enjoyed the tour!  

Want to see more of my house?
