Hello dear friends…. and Happy New Years Eve!
Today it is cold, windy and grey… and loud. Why? Because we have had 4 extra girls overnight and they are SUPER wound up…. but that is what it’s all about isn’t it? This is the kid house and I wouldn’t have it any other way. We have been eating junk food, playing video games and even making feather earrings and tile necklaces. All around driving my husband crazy, but the girls love it. Anyway, in-between all that mess, I snapped a few pictures of the kitchen to share…. Enjoy!
As you can see I am loving having bulbs on the table blooming, my paper whites will be open in a few days.

Wanted to show off my bulbs blooming for a bit! I love having them this time of year. Planting more this week to try to keep the show going till spring!
Thanks for visiting….Brooke
This is the tree for all the kids homemade ornaments and the country-style things I’ve collected. Somehow it is always my favorite. I will post more pictures of the kitchen and all the snowman soon.
Thanks so much for visiting….Brooke

Here are a few pictures from our holiday… it has been a wonderful Christmas.
I usually host Christmas Eve dinner with my side of the family.
This year I did a homemade candy buffet with my crystal, so pretty.
Yumm! As usually we eat thru the holidays!
We’ve had a bit of snow to get us in the mood, but it soon melted.
The tree Christmas morning….
Maddie…. my big girl…
Morgan and that silly hat she has worn every day this week.
Merry Christmas to everyone, our house is full of kids and hubby is off this week. Been loving every minute of it. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Merry Christmas Eve!
My whole house smells like turkey! Delicious!!
Here is another room on the tour, our entryway. I leave this little tree up all year and change the colors a bit for the seasons. I love to see the lights twinkle thru the beveled glass of our front door. This is another good area for my houseplants and you will see more of my vertical spikes as accents. I love to use natural elements, one of my favorite fillers in this area is the stems from annual baby’s breath.
Hope you are enjoying the holidays and my little house tour. I will be posting more rooms until the New Year. Our big family Christmas is tonight here, so I will be busy cooking today.
Again, Merry Christmas and thanks so much for stopping by….

Hello again and Merry Christmas! Lets continue the Holiday Home Tour with my Living Room. It is the room I spend the most time in to watch tv and look at the garden and the lake. It overlooks the Rose Garden and our backyard. This year I have it decorate in a bird/nature theme. I will leave most of this up until I redecorate for Spring. Lets take a peak!
But as I said, the best part about this room is the view!
