My tree is my least favorite decor this year.  Between the dog and my sweet curious 1 year old maintaining a tree is hopeless.  They continue to remove and eat all my my ornaments daily.  Thankfully, I only put out the non-breakable balls and ornaments that were not as sentimentally as most.

My afghan that I made for our new family tradition.  I plan on making a new Christmas afghan each year.  It’s the  primary reason I learned the art of crochet this year.

I made all of us an unique stocking last year.

Our Jesse Tree

This is my very favorite Christmas decoration that is very dear to my heart.  My mom hand painted this  nativity set back in the 70’s.  I have always adored it and she gave it to me last year as a surprise.

Pictures do not do this detailed beautiful gift justice that my sweet Mom gave to me

Our Christmas dinner plates that we enjoy each season

Thank you stopping by our home here in the South.  I thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality I was able to provide ~ the best part of the whole visit is that I didn’t have to clean my house.  LOL!

Enjoy this special season!

Now go continue Christmas caroling over at Tour of Homes.
