These are a few of my favorite things...

BooMama, Tip Junkie, AND Kimba are all having Christmas tour of homes.


Welcome friends!


I don't have much horizontal space for decorating so my TV hutch gets most of the attention. I love putting up previous Christmas pictures (I'm always searching for red frames).


Love these blocks that I got from Lillian Vernon. (Six sides: six different holiday messages)

My Willow Tree nativity. It's taken me several years to collect all the pieces.



How cute is Mr. fuzzy reindeer (and cautious 3 year old with Santa)?

My mom made this wall hanging for me. I no sew :-).
And what would a party be without some yummy cookies? Enjoy!



  • Peanut butter cookie dough (in the cold section of Publix)
  • Chocolate chips for eyes
  • Red m&m's for nose
  • Chocolate covered pretzels (Snyder's brand, in the chip aisle) for antlers. A little bit of white icing to help them stick.

I have just the first section of the Willow Creek nativity and it is among my favorite things. In fact, I leave it out all year.
Those cookies are darling. I think I'll have two!
Come on over when you get a chance!
