WW- Christmas At Our House

The countdown begins,
and you are greeted with a tree,
garland on the window and out the window,
special drinking cups,
snowmen in front of the tables,
and on the tables,
and on the shelves,
a second tree in the family room,
and the most important part:

How beautiful! It's so fun to have Christmas in a new house and decide where to put everything for the first time. I love the view of that snow through the window.

I love the Santa count down idea, might have to remember that one for my daycare kids next year. Your house looks beautiful. I've got all my deco up also and we might be getting snow this weekend, I'm sort of looking forward to it as it will be the first snow of the season.

I just noticed the new leaf pictures including Grace on your side bar...very cute!

I'm jealous of all the tree action! I think I'd have a dozen Christmas trees if I had the room. :)

Oh! The new house looks LOVELY!! Love the entry way!!

Kristen said...

Beautiful friend! Just plain Beautiful!!

Glad to see that we aren't the only house counting down.

Seems to me that 15 days can't come fast enough. Pretty sure my 3 and 4 year olds would agree!

That Santa is a great idea, I'll have to remember that for next year. Beautiful decorations.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. :)

Scrappy said...

So pretty. I wish I had the energy for all of that decorating, maybe next year.
So, is all of this making your house feel a lot more like home?

happy Holidays Kat and family. I may be kind of absent myself. I broke my left foot today while cleaning house after shoveling early this morning..

Beautiful!!! You have been busy!

Beautiful trees and decorations!! I really liked the advent calendar too though -very cute. We had been putting greens in the front (baw window) window sill the past couple of years and tried it this year but, two bad kittens (still left, waiting to find homes) and one bad little dog this year put an end to that trim work! The cats like to play with the greens (imitation stuff) and the lights interwined in that also appeals to them. The dog, on the other hand, thinks that particular window sill is his private resting place so if the cats don't knock it down playing with it, he knocks it down as he jumps up there to watch the world go by!
Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Your house looks beautiful...and I'm realizing how much of a slacker I am. You have 4 kids, you just moved and your hubby was gone for like 4 days!

I have none of those excuses and no decorations up.

Want to come and do my house?

Lisa said...

I love it all! I love how our house is at Christmas too!

Lindsay said...

Beautiful home - I am impressed that you got decorations up with four litte one....I thought I was doing good with just the tree!! :-) I LOVE the advent Santa - that's easy and the kids I bet love it.

What a beautiful Christmas home you've made for your beautiful family, Kat~

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
