Delightful Decorations

 
 For me, decorating begins and ends in the kitchen.

That's the heart of the home, after all.

 
 (Although the dining room gets a fair amount of play, too.)

 
 Of course, the whole gang loves to hang out in the family room as well.

 
 It's the perfect place to soak up that old Christmas feeling.

 That being said, I suppose our very best Christmas moments...

 the ones that warm the heart and lift the soul...

 are probably spent in this cozy spot, the living room.

 
 Our family does some pretty good living here.

 Not because our tree is both ridiculous and spectacular.

But because of the best decorations of all...
 the ones we welcome in most gladly.

 
 Our dear young adult friends, adorning the room with love and joy.

{beyond measure}

Sue your home is always so warm and filled with love. I can see that so clearly and always in these pictures when you open your home to the young people of your church.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!

p.s. I love your Christmas decorations and that you get so into the holiday spirit! I'm slowly adding to a collection of the winter houses (like yours)and the kids love them!

The best decorations are those that share memories, aren't they?

Thanks for sharing your divine home with us.
