Xmas Decor a la Maison de Momma

Christmas Tour of Homes with The Nester

Ok. I am not French. Could you tell?
Today I am participating in a Christmas decorating link-up put on by this wonderful place.

Like I have said many, many times, if it has to do with Christmas, I am in because I love it so darn much.
But let me just ask you, doesn't it feel like it was just August??
It feels just like yesterday that my boys were swimming nude in our pool just like every other kid does.



I must apologize for the photographs. My {professional photographer quality} camera broke while we were in Florida {with some help from my hubby} so it is in being repaired until January.


Our other camera is nice to have so I can have it in my purse at all times but you can really see the difference in quality.

I say put a Sony DSLR on your Christmas list because nothing beats it.


On to my house and my Christmas decor. In my opinion you can never have enough Christmas decorations throughout your home and as I get older, I am sure I will decorate each room in my house according to themes.

One room will be the Santa room. Another the Angel room. And so on. Would you still love me???

Here is our upstairs Christmas tree. It is fake, but we still love it. It is in our dining area in front of our big front window so the one or two cars that pass by our house every night can see it lit up.

It is decorated with my ornaments that my dear Mother purchased for me growing up and the ornaments we have purchased for each of our children every year.

And lots of picture ornaments.

Because I love pictures. Alot.

This is the kids tree at our entrance. They put it up and decorate it with the ornaments that they have made. I absolutely love it.

Messy's ornament from 2007.

Rowdy's ornament from last year.

Everyone say "Awwwwwww".

Garland on our railings decorated with poinsettias and mini balls. I am trying to find clear battery operated lights to wrap in the garland but it appears everyone beat me to it and I cannot find them anywhere. Hmph.

Pine cones and balls. They are pretty much everywhere throughout the house.

We stuck with a "rustic/natural" theme in our downstairs area just because we like it and it goes with the decor of the rooms. This angel is hanging on our closet door near the entrance.

Our mantel.

Family room. Our real tree decorated with natural ornaments. And feathers. :-) Because every Christmas tree needs feathers!!!!

And birds

And birdhouses.
As much as I love Christmas, the decorations dont mean a thing without
That's all that matters.
Happy decorating mon amis!!!!!!!

I love ALL of your trees! And your fireplace is gorgeous- I'm guessing your home is pretty much my dream home.

Question though- you have your dining room upstairs? Did I read that right?
