Last year I was just getting acquainted with the world of blogging and found Boomama's tour. I thought since it was so much fun last year, I'd join in myself this year. I'm a little late in joining... I'm number 746 in the tour! I've had fun checking out some of the other homes on the list. It's so fun to see how everyone is decorating their homes to celebrate our Savior birth. So.... here's our home. Hope you enjoy the tour. In our house Jesus Christ's birth is the "reason for the season." While we celebrate His birth, His death and His resurrection every day, we enjoy the extra focus we have during Christmas. We rejoice in the best gift ever given to us when Christ died on the cross for ME and for You! Without Christ we are nothing but horrible sinners, with Him we are sinners saved by Grace longing to see our Savior's face. What better reason is there to celebrate!
When you walk in our front door the first thing you'll see is our living room sparkling with lights. The tree is "light switch activated" and its the first thing I turn on when I arrive home for work. I love coming home from work during the holidays and having such a greeting waiting for me. The room is filled mostly with a collection of snowmen I've had for years.
To the right when you enter our apartment you'll find our kitchen, which is also sparkling and shining ready for the Christmas festivities. The lights above cabinet give off a wonderful purple hugh. I just love it! Our bathroom is all decked out in sparkling lights too!
At the end of the hall you'll find our bedroom, complete with the "purple tree" a collaboration of ornaments in my favorite color. The tree itself was a purchase from a garage sale a couple of summers ago for $2.50. You never know what wonderful goodies you'll find at a garage sale. Finally our newest room, the hobby room. I really had fun decorating this room this year. The colors just brighten my day. Although the tree is small, we've loaded it with lots of polka dots and bright colors.
Hope you enjoyed the tour. I don't have any goodies created yet...planned on doing that, but spent too much time creating fun pictures on picnik.com! (After visiting all the other homes on the tour you're probably "sweeted out" any way!) Hopefully tonight we'll have some wonderful goodies to share. Come again! We always love visitors.
**Edit: Just in case you got bored with the hundreds of house over at boomama's blog....I'm finding Boomama is not the only one hosting a tour on the 15th. There are several others including this one:
