No Place Like Home for the Holidays

Oh, there's no place

like home

for the holidays

'cause no matter

how far away

you roam

if you want

to be happy

in a million ways

for the holidays

you can't beat

home sweet home!

I'll be home for Christmas

You can count on me

Please have snow and mistletoe

And presents on the tree

Christmas Eve will find me

Where the love light gleams

I'll be home for Christmas

If only in my dreams...

One more week till Christmas Eve!
And guess what? I'm almost ready!!

Good for you for being almost ready! I love your decorations. your home is beautiful, and your family is going to love all the memories there!

jen said...

House looks ready! Do you have to move decorations when grandkids come? There's no way I could leave all that stuff within reach. Hyrum would destroy all!

Susan Anderson said...

I do have to admit that my daughter-in-law spends some time the first day moving stuff onto higher ground. But the two oldest kids are pretty good about being gentle with things now. The baby, on the other hand...


(That's okay. It's the first glimpse of Christmas majesty that counts, right? After that, it's a free-for-all anyway around here.)

i'm not ready. don't have a menu, and haven't done sean's stocking yet. although, i did learn what his favorite candy was and let him know what mine was;-) this is our first christmas away from family. i'm excited and sad. i'm sure it will be great fun to see the pork loin in full santa fashion;-)

Momza said...

Tree up: Check
Meal planned: Check
Presents bought: Nope!!

Can I come to YOUR house for Christmas? It looks so sweet and homey and inviting!

Unknown said...

What a beautiful home!! I'm glad you're not ready, otherwise I would feel depressed at how not ready we are!

karen said...

Your home looks like a lot of fun will be happening there! I still have to plan a menu (for Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, and throughout the day for nibbling)AND bake some goodies. Seems like a lot still.

Looks great! You should link up to the MMB holiday home tour, you might win $50!

Susan Anderson said...

Good idea, MomBabe. There, done!


Grandma Honey said...

You have a very lovely home. And it's obvious you love Christmas!

Happy holidays!

Lovely home. Today is New Years Eve and everyone is starting to take them down so I am enjoying the MMB tour again.
Your house looks so festive and cozy! I hope you had a great Christmas.
