Getting Closer to Merry Merry.....




Welcome to our home.....getting so excited for the days to come.




As you walk by the picket fence....




.....into the garden



.....you are welcome to our front porch.  



As you come inside, you wander by the entry and.....



...please make yourself comfortable in our living room.



Of course you are welcome to come rest in our family room too. 


Please enjoy a peek at our mantle....with a collection of Santa's from over the years. 


I am off to the kitchen to make you some tea and cookies.

Did you spy my new "mixmaster" on the kitchen tree.  
A great help in the kitchen!!!!


While you wait, you can look at our bookcase....
full of photos of the ones I hold dear. 



We try so hard to keep the MERRY in Merry Christmas !!!!



The dining room is ready for special dinners. 


Our Snowmen family will watch you enjoy each bite!!!


We can enjoy our Dutch Chocolate Letter for dessert....a very Dutch Tradition. 


Speaking of Dutch....St. Nicholas guides you to the top of the stairs. 




At Christmas time we hold close so many traditions....


....but always remembering the sweetest gift ever shared. 


As we get closer to Christmas Day, I want to wish you all a joyous holiday season.

I hope it is blessed with love and family....the greatest gift of all.
