Welcome to the Happy Homemaker's Holiday Home Tour! Thank you to BooMama for arranging this fun event. If you haven't been reading BooMama, you're life is just not as fun as it could be.
Let's start with the Santa in the driveway:
Here is a little photo of last year's tree. Of course, it looked much more colorful in person.
Sometimes we decorate the tree completely in snowflakes. Here's that. If I can get someone to come over and take a digital photo of this year's snowflake tree, I believe you would find it even more impressive.One of our yearly traditions is a "gingerbread" house decorating "contest." Everyone wins, we just all win different categories. For instance, Spencer's is usually Most Delicious since he eats more than he decorates. James often wins Most Unusual or Most Bizarre. In the lower photo, you can see the winner for Most Alphabetical. I say everyone wins...but look at this kitchen!
Another yearly tradition is decorating a tree in the woods for the wildlife. Our outing is based on the book Night Tree. Here are the boys preparing the treats.
Here is a Christmas dinner from 2001. We usually have friends join us for dinner. Look at little Spencer over there in his high chair.
Merry Christmas, y'all!
