I have finally finished all the house decorations, tree decorating and the outside lights are all up and burning brightly. If you can't tell...I love this time of year. Now I am ready to start baking and wrapping presents.
As I have been promising for a week now....pictures of our home decorated for CHRISTmas. Let me warn some of you ahead of time...I am and have been for 28+ years...a Santa collector. They are displayed all over my house during CHRISTmas.
We celebrate the birth of Jesus, teach it to our children and instill in them the true meaning of CHRISTmas because without the birth of Jesus...what would there be to celebrate...not Santa, but Jesus Christ, who was born in a manager and died for our sins on an old rugged cross.
However, we also did the Santa Claus "thing" with our children, just like our parents did with us. Hopefully, you won't think any less of me...but this is the "real" me and that is what my blog is all about...being completely transparent.
I hope you enjoy the pictures and welcome to our home for CHRISTMAS! Come on in and make yourself at home.
This is my favorite tree except for our big tree. It has blown glass nativity scenes, angels and over 50 crosses on it. This nativity scene is also my favorite.
I didn't realize until this morning that these pictures got their heads cut off. It was after 1 AM when I finished and I didn't notice. The police Santa is for my hubby, who is a part-time police officer.
