Grand Christmas Tour of My Home

Thank you to Kimba over at A Soft Place To Land for having a party today. Check out her blog for some great Open House fun.http://asoftplacetoland-kimba.blogspot.com/2008/12/kimbas-open-house-party.html
How do you like my tree? I never did get the lights in the middle working. Know what my mom did? She put another set of lights in the middle but after we put the ornaments on they stopped working too, along with the other dead set of lights still on the tree. Oh well, it still is lit so that's okay right? Now, the garland I let my 2 middle children do. They really really wanted to do it. They didn't do too bad, normally we have more garland & it's straighter but I think they did a good job. So this is our grand tree. Yippee, it's up finally at least. I think it's beautiful.

A beautiful Angel ornament one of my suppliers sent me as a thank you for buying from them. I love it, I opened it this morning.

I know what you're thinking...... Jennifer, let's see the rest of this gorgeous Christmas Decor Galore!!!!!!!!! Okay, I don't want to torture from seeing my beautiful Christmas gala.

See how tricky I am? The first picture I cut off the bottom of the tree. Ha, tricked you!!!!!

Braxton has found much fun pulling the lights off the tree and all of the ornaments he can pull off too. Like my ladder? I'm wondering how long we will leave it there.... humm.... Do you like how all of my presents are scattered abroad. Bet you thought that was some great creative Christmas genius right? nope, just the 2 year old playing with the presents & making piles. He's unstoppable!!!

Okay, I need an intervention. Help me please. My tubs are sitting in the middle of my living room STILL. And they are full of stuff!!! At least I managed to get my mantle somewhat Christmased up. Does it count as Christmas decor if the stuff in the boxes falling out is Christmas stuff?

Braxton didn't want the hallway to feel left out on the whole Walkerpolozza Christmas Extravaganza so he decided to unwrap some presents & sprinkle wrapping paper on the floor. My boy is so thoughtful? Thinking out of the box he is, decorating the floor like that for us. Sweetie.

These are everywhere too!!!! Braxton is so clever to pull off ornaments from the tree and leave them all over our floor. Now even the floor is full of holiday cheer!!

Now I know what you're thinking? How can I ever achieve this great Holiday look. Well, because all of you are such great bloggy friends. Just leave me a comment & I will bring Braxton over to your home & you too can have this great look in your home. Hey, I'm not selfish. I want every one's home to look THIS GOOD.

But first I have to be able to get out the front door. Oh, Braxton.

Merry Christmas!!

Oh I remember when my kids were that age. Having to redecorate the tree everyday and rewrap the presents. My kids are past that age and I still have boxes laying around. You're doing good. Have fun with Braxton!

OH I remember those times that we spent more time chasing little ones and re-decorating than we did decorating! So funny...the tree looks beautiful!

I left you a video over at my blog...but wanted to say WOW!

You blessed my socks off girl! That was too much. :)

Oh girl! I can relate so much! I usually only show the pretty pictures on my blog but there are plenty of real life going on here too.

I love your tree...lighting issues and all.

Merry Christmas,

Your tree is so pretty and you are so funny! :-) You should be getting your cookie making package soon! I mailed it a little later than I planned, but it's on the way! :-)

Nothing like a two year old at christmas to keep you on your toes! Merry christmas :)

Arleen @ Seasons for All at Home said...

Oh my gosh! I store all my Christmas decor in tubs just like yours. So the transition before and after Christmas is not a pretty one at all! Your tree is beautiful, and I never would have guessed you had a challenge with the lights if you'd not said anything! Merry Christmas! ~Arleen
