Over at Faith and Family Live, Lisa Hendey is inviting us to share our Christmas photos. She’s not looking for Better Homes and Gardens shots (but if your house looks like that we’ll love you anyway). She wants people to share the simple ways they’ve dressed up their homes for Christmas.
Do you have a picture of your tree, your outdoor lights, or your kids dressed up for church? Share it!
Here’s my contribution:
First, there’s our tree. I Google-shared a video of our cutting it down and putting it up last week.
Next, I must share our snowman stocking holders. I picked these up at the second hand store for $1 each last month. I love them!
Here’s a look at our tree from upstairs on what we call the “catwalk.” It’s an open hall that leads to the kids’ bedrooms. This high ceiling is what allows us to get such a tall tree. I like to think that Christmas is what Dan had in mind when he designed this spot.
I love putting white lights here in the wintertime because they’re so much more fun than a nightlight.
And finally, here’s my favorite Christmas decoration this year: Stephen’s own tree.
On Christmas Eve, he made a trip into the woods with big brother Eamon to choose and cut a tree. Eamon helped him set it up in his room and then he decorated it with lights, bows, and candy canes. I love seeing it there right next to his bed when I go to check on him at night.
Don’t forget to share your own Christmas photos.
