A Glimpse into an American Home

As a child my parents would drive through neighborhoods and I would be mesmerized by the lights that adorned the eves and trees that surrounded neighboring homes.  As I grew older we would continued to drive through neighborhoods but I found myself trying to peek through unobstructed windows to see how others chose to decorate their homes for the holidays.  Today you will not need to drive slowly nor strain your eyes to see what’s behind closed doors.  You are welcomed to enter and see how one American family adds Christmas magic to their home!

  1. Very nice. We used to go all out as well, but as we aged, and moved from friends, that has fallen by the wayside.

    Hope you had a nice Christmas, and hope your dog found new digs once the guests arrived.

  2. I really enjoyed your generous sharing of your home’s Christmas magic. Lots of fun things to see and your artistic nature is definitely on display. Hope you had a lovely Christmas day and are gearing up for a wonderful 2015.
