Show Us Your Life - Christmas Tour of Homes!!!!!!

So that I can participate in Kelly's "Show Us Your Life - Christmas Tour of Homes" tonight - this post is going up a few hours early - I hope you enjoy!

HAPPY TGIF my friends and welcome to the weekend!! WOOT WOOT!!! I don't know about you, but this has been such a LONG week for me and it has just drug out so much that I am just plain pooped! HA!  Hard to believe that a week from today is Christmas Eve, isn't it?!  WHERE has the time gone?  Sheesh.  I am SO far behind on my Christmas shopping this year that we are having Christmas early as a family THIS SUNDAY and I have STILL not finished  - ACK!!!

Anyway - on to the reason you stopped by!  We've never been in THIS house ever for Christmas because we were always living out of state.  So... this year, I went a little crazy with the decorations - but I love how they turned out.  We were disappointed because we couldn't decorate our outside with lights due to the high ceilings and slippery slopes.  I always LOVE to play along with Kelly's "Show Us Your Life - Christmas Tour of Homes" each year and love to see how everyone else decorates so I can get ideas from them for next year!  Also this year, I'm linking up at the "Nesters" as well - so be sure and check all of the great home tours out and post yours too so we can all see!  Okay....without further adieu - please pull up a chair, your favorite snack and favorite beverage and come inside where it's warm......

 Come on in, won't you......

Another new piece that I just HAD to have this year: - yep, it's a wine bottle holder (those of you who know me - know this is NO surprise - ha)
Well, that's the end of the tour - thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed yourself!  Now I'm off to check out the other cool Christmas decorations and "borrow" some of your ideas! :)  SO.... Merry Christmas and.....
Lots of love and hugs,
