Open House and Merry Christmas!


It's here :)

Thought you may like to see
a little Christmas sprinkled through our home...




The entry - I made those sequined balls one year, and they always add a little sparkle somewhere.




We set up the nativity scene in the living room, and have been reading the story of Christmas nightly..




A few amaryllis brighten up this corner.




Onward to the kitchen - where the goodies are...




It's cookie heaven around here! 
Hopefully the neighbours will clean us out this evening,
 I have to stop eating them!




Then down to the family room, the greenery on the mantle smells fantastic :)
I gathered a few boughs from the forest out back, and tucked in some of our feathered friends.





This is the first year we have had such a traditional tree.
I began collecting angel ornaments in white, silver and gold when Natasha was born,
 and there's quite a few.. but this year they stayed packed.
The kids wanted to put all their Christmas crafts from years past on the tree, so we got out all the red decorations, and added some candy canes and balls to our collection...









The wrapping has a homespun feel, to go along with the tree.
Craft paper, bits of twine, and the paper D. bought with the kids :)
Since we usually do not add much red, this is a really festive departure.
I am actually feeling a bit of red overload!




 None of the presents from D. are here yet, of course, he always wraps his on Christmas Eve, LOL.

Tonight we are off to Mass, and then the kids each receive one present to open
(it's always new pj's and slippers!)

Tomorrow we will have a huge brunch with Mimosas,
 a little afternoon skate at the outdoor ice down the street
 and then a wonderful dinner with family...
what could be better?

I hope tomorrow finds you with friends and family...
Merry Christmas :)


til next time..

Merry Christmas, Anne-Marie. Sounds like you all had a lovely Christmas day. Love all the Christmas around your beautiful home, and it's fun to see all the crafty ornaments on the tree.
