Fire place wall...we are playing Christmas music through our smart TV...
Well it's Christmas here at the new house and though we haven't had time to totally move in we did decorate for Christmas this year. We attempted to put up our Old tree but it looked so sad and small in our great room that we had to venture out and get a slightly bigger tree. The challenge is to find ornaments next year to completely decorate it..this year, only the front got decorated. We finally feel at home and hope that many of you will stop warned...we still don't have any concrete outside. That will now have to wait until spring...Merry Christmas..

Christmas tree...Red and White this year...

No Christmas is complete without a Christmas Village in our house....

Paul and the girls...who love our tree

Entry table

Love this paper sleigh that I got at a paper store last year, I know it won't last forever but it really felt retro to me so I couldn't help but buy it.

Look at how beautiful Eloise has become...and she is so smart. Can't wait to see where her jeans take her.

We finally bought a rug...we LOVE it but now we have to get matching rugs in other areas..yay more ways to spend my raise.

Still Love my white  porcelain nativity...Merry Christmas

 The back of the house is one color since there is no bead board on the second level.

We agonized over the stone.  We felt like picking out the house paint color before the stone was backwards.  But it looks pretty good.

They call this arch over the garage door an eyebrow.  It looks great.
Chandler in the front entry.

The crown molding in the first floor is awesome. The wire hanging down is waiting for the in ceiling speaker.

Master bedroom accent windows above headboard.  It hasn't been paint in this picture.

The cabinets in the kitchen ar elegant.  Notice the black glaze accent on the doors and the crown molding.  Beautiful!

Almost done. Notice the back splash is in place waiting to be grouted

I know it needs to be rotated but ahhh, double ovens!

Master bathroom vanity.

Archway into the dinning room.  There's another arched doorway around to the right

Upstairs bathroom shower.  The accent is class to tie in with the glass vantiy top.

Pumpkins from Michele's gardening experiment.  She tossed two pumpkin seeds on the ground and she got six pumpkins.

I cut down some small tress around an old rotted stump and when I got home I discovered that I had been bitten by something or by a lot of somethings.  I didn't feel anything at the time but the blisters sure hurt for about a week.  I finally couldn't take it any longer and so I poped them all to releive the pressure.  It's been almost two weeks and they are getting better quickly now.

I had three piles of logs to cut up.  this is the last of them  I log I am looking at is about 40" in diameter.  How in the world am I going to cut it up?
