Hi All! I didn’t have the time to take pictures of all my decorations before Christmas, so I took a few before I packed them up. They aren’t the greatest of quality as many were taken with my phone. Also, if you don’t already know, I live in a smallish town-home, in an interior unit. I have zero natural light in my living/dining area, so it’s very hard to get good photos even with the good camera. In addition, my walls are painted… Orange. That usually leaves an orange cast to many of my photos and videos. It is what it is. I’ll re-link the video I took at the end.

The front door…

I have a “Great Room” which consists of my Living and Dining Area. This is the room with no natural light. I had originally painted the room in that Tuscan orange color so it had a “sunny” and “cozy” feel. It’s actually very nice in person. It just doesn’t photograph well. Outdated? Yes! I’m well aware. I still like it and will probably leave it for a little while longer. We plan on moving to a regular single family home in the next two years, so I know I’ll have to repaint it to sell it.

The Living Area…

I wanted to add Greenery to the stockings, I just didn’t get around to it.

Onto the Dining Area…

The Bottom of the Stairs…

The Kitchen…

The Computer Room…

The Master Bedroom…

Now onto the Festivities!

Christmas Eve…

We must have been real good this year!

I baked Chocolate Chips and Cinnamon Crescent Cookies. You can find the recipe for my Cinnamon Crescent Cookies by clicking here. I have to make them every year.

Dessert…

I didn’t make Gingerbread cookies this year, so I quickly slapped together a Gingerbread House. It’s no masterpiece, but it tasted good.

I did however bake some Sugar Cookies, which turned out pretty good if I don’t say so myself. I don’t think I let the icing dry enough between colors because the noses bled a little bit. But they were delicious! I was told that I was to make these every year, in addition to the Cinnamon Crescents. OK, but next year, I’m just doing the trees and something with an easier design. The Santas were a pain in the arse. I’m not enough of an advanced baker, LOL.

Christmas Morning…

The Presents…

I was very spoiled 🙂

My Son’s girlfriend spent Christmas Eve with us, and opened gifts with us in the morning. They spent the rest of the day with her family.

Hubby and I just spent a lazy day with the puppies.

I hope your Holiday was Wonderful!

Here’s the Video Tour!

Till next time!
