Fa la la la la... la la la la!

Hello ALL and Merry Christmas to you! I am so happy to be doing the tour of homes this year! I have been wanting to do it ever since last year when I found it and read just about all 800 post! I also got some great ideas from the tour last year, so I thought I would give it a try this year.
As you can see, my style is very modern and as my very traditional husband would say... "festive". I decided to go with all the bright bold colors this year. Plus, anything I could find with glitter was a MUST!
I will start you off with my kitchen table.. probably the most traditional part of the house..
Here is Brady's very first picture with Santa Clause last year... What a difference a year makes.
I love the floor mat here.. found it at Lowe's last year...
Here is a picture of my TREE! Oh, I just loved how this turned out!!! The red mesh and the glittery curly sprigs just make it, don't you think?
Here is a full body shot... no presents yet :( But I just got that tree skirt in last week, it matches the stockings we got last year.
Here are some of my favorite ornaments...
The purple peacock came from Michael's.. it is sorda my inspiration for all the decor. There are several of these hiding through out the house...
Here is our mantel and stockings! Love them! They are pretty traditional too, red and green...
And here is the wreath above the mantle where my husband's Christmas present will be soon :) Bet you can't guess what that will be, huh?
Here is the Garland above the cabinets in the kitchen... I love how every strand of garland looks the same in the house. It really ties it all together...
Here are the dogs stockings...not on the mantle because they don't match... and that would drive me crazy. So we found them a home on the bookshelf...
In Brady's room we have a small tree with special ornaments we have received so far. We got this set from my mom for our first Christmas married...
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you loved it as much as I do...
From my family to yours... Merry CHRISTmas! May you be truly blessed this holiday season.

That is such a fun cookie sheet mat in front of your oven! And your tree looks fantastic! Kelly

You have done such a wonderful job decorating your home.
I am so sorry about your son, I have a friend here who has a daughter with Infantile Spasms. Her blog is http://blessedbentons.blogspot.com/. Sometimes it is good to know you have someone who is going through the same thing as you.
