Christmas 2008 Tour of the Vigil Home…

 I am new to the Christmas Tour of Homes this year, so welcome to my home and Thank you to BooMama for hosting.


The stockings that are hung were made by Grandma Postma and have now become a part of our holiday traditions!


The tree and many of my favorite sections!


The hand made, tie on ornaments, made perfectly for a toddler who is currently discovering the Christmas Tree – these were given to me after my Grandmother passed. I have great childhood memories about hanging these on the tree as a kid…


The front door – with the new wreath I had to purchase because our old one would not fit between the glass door and the front door…. The advent calendar from last season’s after Christmas sale and candles. Oh and I cannot forget the Swedish Troll Accent – Great childhood memories of time spent with my Papa George and MorMor…


The Nativity Scene I got creative with this year, Isaac’s daily advent calendar – he loves to play with this – and the cutest SnowMan Ever!
