Welcome to Boomama’s 2nd annual Christmas tour of homes. This was fun to do last year so I thought I’d jump in again. We love to celebrate the birth of Jesus here and have fun decorating. I think I’m mostly through with what I’m doing before all the family gets home. So come on in and visit for a while….

This is the front of our home

Straight into the den is our fireplace and mantle where the stockings are…..we haven’t built a fire yet this year!

Our Christmas tree is also in this room over to the side, with a variety of ornaments.

A couple of years ago I started hanging Christmas cards in the doorway to this room; I’m sure there’s a better way to display them but I like seeing them as I come in and out and actually lots of other people end up looking at them too.

Our nativity set… kids used to like to come behind me and set it up their own way. I’m sure this will get changed around when they get here because I probably didn’t get it the way they like it! I love this set because it was a gift from my mother in law, and the kids could play with it without breaking anything.

I hung some Christmas balls from the lights over the breakfast room table

And put garland in the front hallway

Thanks for dropping by! Be sure to visit here to see the other participants and all their great decorations too.
Merry Christmas y’all!

    I have never seen the Christmas balls hung from the light fixtures until today … and now I have seen it everywhere. I love that idea and I am going to see if I can find some balls tomorrow and some ribbon and do that at my house. I have always wondered what to do with the light fixture. I hang balloons on birthdays!

    Your home is so pretty. Just the way I pictured it would be. It matches you — lovely and classy. Really!

    We put all of our cards in a basket but I love the idea of taping them to the doorways. I might have to steal that too. This home tour stuff is great!

    It looks good, but then again, it always does. I’ll see it soon! Oh, and you should have LOTS more stockings on that mantle 🙂

  9. Susan Says:

    Great decorations and beautiful home! I’ve seen the balls hanging from light fixtures on several blogs, and I want to try it, too. My husband will think I’ve finally lost my mind! 😉

  10. Robin Says:

    You have such a beautiful tree! And I love the idea of a Nativity that the kids can handle. My kids do the same as yours – rearrange it to their ideas of how it should look!
    Thanks for sharing your lovely home!

  12. Lauren@Baseballs&Bows Says:

    I love the balls hanging over the table! That is a very festive idea! We haven’t used our fireplace yet this year either, but I always try to remember to do that on Christmas Eve!

  13. Lauren@Baseballs&Bows Says:

    By the way, I am also jealous of your built-in shelves and cabinets on either side of your mantle. That is one thing I really wish I had!

  14. Kim Says:
