Them Chandlers' Christmas Tour of Home(s)

Okay. So. I wanted to upload my pictures for Boo Mama's Christmas Tour of Homes but that didn't happen. I didn't realize there was a DATE. I'm thinking maybe some dateS for the Tour...have you seen how huge the Tour actually is??? Like 800 people! Who could possibly tour 800 homes on only December 15, 2008? I could be totally wrong and that's just the START date. But whatever...here's Them Chandlers' Christmas Tour of Home(s). If anyone wants to join me, please do!


The dining room...pretty much like last year.


The entry...I heart poinsettias. They're cascading down the railing. They're blooming from the Christmas tree. They're pouring out from underneath the candelabra.


The mantle. I'm missing one large candle votive. I bought them from Hobby Lobby last year. One didn't make it to this year. And, of course, Hobby Lobby didn't have them this year :( I left them up there anyway!


The tree. It's pre-lit and the top portion went out...boo!


An ornament Reid made this year.


One of my new additions to the tree this year...Christmas-y cardinals in their nests.


The view from our couch...one of my favorite vistas.


My attempt to display our Christmas cards in an orderly, decorative fashion.

Thanks for coming! If you decide to do something similar, leave me a comment so I can stop by!

Love your home Lauren... It is beautiful.

I did the tour. We also have a pre lit. Our middle section burnt out this year so we had to throw some quick lights up there.

I am moving on the the real thing next year.

Your home looks lovely & cozy too! I want to come over and have a cup of coffee:) Oh, I will post some pics of our home "all dressed up" soon. And when I say soon, I mean I'm lucky if I do it before Christmas.

Beautiful...I wouldn't expect anything less! All of the decorations (Christmas and not) actually really remind me of your parent's house on C...(shoot, can't remember the name of that street!!) You know, the one on the south side. ;) Anyway, wish I could see it...and all your family...in person. Glad you got our Christmas card! :) Lots of love to you and your entire family this holiday season!

Your house looks so pretty! Perfect for entertaining, which I'm sure you guys do a ton of during the holidays. My favorite part might be the entryway. I love that frame thing you have with the kids' pictures in it. So neat! Merry Christmas to y'all!

Beautiful home and pictures of it! I really like the framed pictures/decorations in the entryway (is that the entryway?) That is definately a creative step above me but I like it!

I am in Houston, but I will order if I have to...I am blessed by your words and my husband and I are blessed my YOUR husband weekly. Merry Christmas!

Love your home! I am just a tad late on seeing this, but wanted to comment and say how pretty your home is! The lights on my Christmas tree went out too and I just bought it, it's going back. I love the entryway!
