Merry Christmas from Our House to Yours

We're having a family "get together" with my husband's family this Sunday, and expect around 30 people. I'm going to be busy with party preparations the next few days, and thought I would share my Christmas decorations in this slideshow. If you'd like to hear the music, be sure your sound is turned up before you click on "Play."

OH, Janie!!

This is just lovely---I knew before I started it that you'd choose that song. There's just something about the tones of Randy's voice that's one of the special things in life.

One year when I lived down there, we had relatives visiting from all over the place---Pennsylvania, New Orleans, Florida, Texas---and Sis and I, along with her very talented guitar-playing BIL, arranged that song to include all the hometowns of all the ones present.

We sang it sitting on my big wide brick hearth, in front of the tree, and I remember it as being one of the loveliest moments---everyone was sitting there in the candlelight around the dinner tables, with the same tones and glow as your pictures, and it is a wonderful memory.

Our Girl is going to love this one, too.

I feel as though I have just been on a tiny vacation sitting here on the daybed with the laptop on my knees! How beautiful all the areas of your home are! I think it is the kind of home that you could just walk in and feel comfortable right away. It is also nice to see that others like to decorate over the whole house, too. Thanks for sharing!

What a wonderful Christmas home you created!
Thank you for the images,
true inspiration.

Your house reminds me a bit of ours, back in the States. I am always a bit nostalgic about our good old home.
