Finally she posts the pictures....


Okay bloggy people, I am finally going to post my pictures for BooMama's Home lurking Tour. Sorry, I have taken so long, I seem to been chasing my tail a good bit lately, and there's a lot o' tail to chase, therefore it's keepin' me busy. I hate to ask for comments, it makes me feel so needy. But in keeping with the "Tour of Homes" etiquette, please drop me a line, doesn't have to be big, anything will do, "great job", "looks nice", you suck", just sumpin. M'kay? Thanks.

We'll start with the outside and work our way in since that's the way we would do it if you were really here unless, of course, you have the ability to just appear in my kitchen, in which case you scare me and you're not invited.


This is my foyer....
The kids love this train, they call it the Polar Express train.

This is my Christmas card tree. I LOVE this thing. I used to hunt for ways to display my cards and never found one that satisfied me. My hair dressing diva Joann had one of these in her house. I admired it every year, but could never find one of my own. Finally I borrowed hers, and had my wood working neighbor make one for both me and his wife. I painted them in return. It has little holes on each 'branch' where I can tie on my cards. LOVE IT!!

Moving on to the Dining room....



The breakfast room.....



Now we'll go into the kitchen where I spend most of my time, I just finished washing the Thanksgiving dishes yesterday.
Not so much in the decoration department for the kitchen, just the places I look at most of the time, the window above the kitchen sink, and the back of the stove.....Thank you very much.

On to the living room ....







There are several other smaller things, like I forgot the bathrooms where I have greenery and candles, but I don't think ya'll need a picture of the bowels of our home.....pun intended.....I may get around to putting a few more on here. I had every intention of putting up a tree in the classroom upstairs, but I never got around to it. I didn't have time to dig through the junk to get to the trees in the girls rooms, so no pic's of those either.

I actually had refreshments available earlier and I meant to take a picture of them to put on here, for your virtual grazing, but my Bible Study group came over for snacks and nothing can desolate a snack table faster than a group of Baptist women with forks. So, no pic's of that either.

I do hope you all have a lot of fun stuff planned for this weekend. We are going to have Christmas with my family, and hopefully get to lay around a bit. I will post some pictures of the various programs we've been in/to in the next day or so. Have a great day, and thanks for lookin'.

Okay. The Santa by the fireplace is the best! I haven't seen anything like it on the Tour, and I love it! Maybe it's just me, but it kind of looks like he's getting ready to bust a move.... Of course, I've taken Tylenol PM and am half asleep. So if I'm mistaken, please forgive me. I'm under the influence...

Everything looks beautiful, and nothing "sucks." You crack me up.

I agree with the comment above. I had an ornament exchange the other night at my house and the ladies just devoured the food and yes, I am Baptist. lol

I love the santa hats on the backs of the chair. That is adorable. I joined this tour too too but very late I might add. Feel free to take a peek at my house.

LOL I am with what LL said....also, I HEART that card tree. When Hubs wakes up I am going to have him look at it and see how motivated he is for next year. This year we are in a hotel!

very "festivous"...I know not a real word but we use it all the time at our house!

You have done a great job of decorating, and you're funny to boot LOL. The train under the tree is awesome. Wouldn't last 3 min at my place, maybe someday ;)

Thanks for the tour. Love the card tree -- I want one -- and the Santa hats on the chairs.

Merry Christmas.
