Better late than never..

For the Christmas Home Tour..

My favorite of the outside decorations:

Most of our decorations are older than me, including this angel:

The stockings my mom made for me and my siblings:

So my mom is pretty into cows:

This bell was in my great-grandmother’s house–it plays “Jingle Bells” (very, very slowly and weakly) when you pull the string:

Rodney is the reindeer is very beloved; he has been around since my parents were dating (he came from Burger King):

One of my very, very favorite things–my mom made this for my dad the Christmas when they were dating..it wasn’t long before she got it back:

And the countdown is on–when we were little, my brother and sister and I would fight over who got to move the mouse each day–sometimes it got moved three times a day!  Have you seen “Four Christmases”?  This exact calendar was hanging in the kitchen of Brad’s dad’s house:
