mormonmommyblogs.com christmas tour 2009






So.... I adore the site www.mormonmommyblogs.com and they are hosting their first ever christmas home tour! Now, my mom is the queen of holiday decorating, but im not so good at it, hehe. But we LOVE counting down to christmas at our house, so i thought i would show some of our favorite ways to count down to christmas!
We have a felt tree from the amazing www.funfelt.com karen clark! the kids get to put a new ornament or gift under the felt tree; we have a paper chain with a loop for each day that has a service project or special scripture on it, that we do at bedtime; we have the neat bear countdown that my sister and i used as children-- u move the little bear each day to a different part of the house ;)
Then we have our little reindeer and glass nativity, and our charlie brown christmas tree decorated by the kids, and dont forget to note the line of puppy dog stickers on the wall leading to the tree, that was sydneys contribution lol!!!!!
Merry Christmas!!!

Just stopping by on the tour! You've got some great ideas for the countdown. I need to do some of them myself!

Awwww Jaelle! Your house looks very homey, welcoming and festive! I'd love to come and visit and plop down for a cup of hot chocolate and just to chat. :0) I remember your mom's tree too . . . gorgeous!

We're supposed to put our tree up tonight for FHE. As cold as it is though, I think I just want to hibernate under a big blanket!

Very nice! I love the countdown ideas. I keep meaning to put something together for my guys, but I get easily sidetracked. Thanks for showing us around your house again! :o)

Ahh, the paper chain. We're totally making one tonight.

Honk, honk! Tour bus stop. I love the creative ways you celebrate the countdown. Kids these days don't get to experience the joy of anticipation as much as we did so all the little things you do to help create that, is much needed and I'm sure much appreciated.

Ack! I just said "kids these days". I am officially old now.

Hello, Hello! I love your countdown ideas! We have quite a few too, but we always seem to forget once we get into the month. . . crazy December!

Augh! Those puppy stickers are to die for! (And we have a paper chain, too. Pretty sure Santa CAN'T come without one ....)
