A Blessed Christmas from our home to yours....
Welcome to our 2012 Merry Christmas home Tour. Come on in!
Our Christmas decor would not be complete without our nativity scene greeting our dear guests and reminding us all of the reason for the season
I love decorating especially for the holidays. It's a way for me to prepare not just our home but also my heart for the celebrant of the season....for the One Who "stepped out of heaven onto earth, in order that we might one day step out of earth into heaven". The One Who left us peace...'not as the world gives' (John 14:27) but the kind of peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7), so that it may be for us, heaven (in the here and now) all the way to heaven.
Our homes should be a place of comfort and refuge; and so I like to create an atmosphere that reflects simplicity, peace, and serenity, that my heart might be prepared to celebrate the birth of Christ, The Immanuel (God with us), and also the birth of our middle son, Immanuel.

and of course, every year since Isabella's involvement with SFBallet Nutcracker production (since 2009), our Nutcrackers and ballerina ornaments come out to grace the top of our piano joined by our taekwondo ornaments (representing our 3 sons)
I hope you enjoyed our Merry Christmas home tour this year.
Blessed Christmas from our family to yours.
