Christmas at our Home-- Part III

Our Home all Decorated for Christmas
Well---my Special Blog Friends,  this will be my last post for 2013... I cannot believe the year has passed by so quickly!!!  Time flies when you are having fun I guess.... AND--I certainly have had a great year...

Today,  I'll share with you a little more of our Christmas here in Fairfield Glade, Tennessee.   On Monday,  I talked about our special ornaments.  Then on Wednesday,  I showed you my Angel Collection... Today--I'll share with you more of our Christmas --both inside and outside.

Be sure to click on the photos for enlargements.  The photo above shows you what the outside of our home looks like from the street. We don't do alot of fancy decorating --but love our three lit wreaths especially.

Front Porch and Wreaths

Little tree on the front porch (with lights/bows/candy canes)

The Wreath on the Garage side --plus lights in the windows

Our deck with garland and bows

Looking at our home from the backyard;  You can see the tree inside.

Our Tree inside --full of MEMORIES!!!!

In addition to loving our Christmas tree,  we love our FIREPLACE all winter!!

A wider view of some of our Living Room/Great Room area

The Center of our Lives;  Our Nativity

Some of my Christmas BABIES --which take care of us at Christmas!!!  (Center top is a Christmas COW---Do you have one of these????? ha)

Advent Calendar --made by my sister-in-law many years ago

More decorations -- all with many special memories attached

Dining Room Table ---all ready for a big TURKEY DINNER

More memories scattered around the room

OH---the memories here!!  Read below.
When George and I first got married,  one dream I had (still have) is to own a little cabin on top of a mountain somewhere...   WELL---this is our 'mountain cabin'---which we gave to each other the first year we were married...

The other thing I want to point out in the photo is the HUGE snowball which I got from a friend many years ago when she lived in Colorado... She's in Texas now ---and even though Texas grows BIG STUFF,  they don't have snowballs like this one!!!!!

WELL---this wraps up our Christmas at Home....  As you can tell,  I am one who loves Christmas ---not all of the fancy stuff about Christmas,  but mainly the memories.  Most of the 'stuff' around our home is a gift from someone special... When I decorate,  I can re-live all of these memories...

I thank all of you for your love and faithfulness in following my blog/Facebook/emails this year... You are ALL so very special to me --and I want to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and  a Happy New Year.   I will blog again on JANUARY 6, 2014.
