Christmas House Tour

Well, I've decided to do this neat thing going on in Blogville. Boo Mama'sChristmas Homes tour. Come take a look at some of our Christmas decorations, but don't mind the toys scattered and the half eaten piece of toast on the floor. I just made some Mexican wedding cookies and i have some Bananna Bread in the oven right now, It smells great!!

Here is our Dining room table.

The tree is in the living room. I didn't have any part in the decoration of the tree, that is all done by my husband....trees arn't my thing. He put some neat, retro bubble lights they look really neat when it's dark.

My husband loves to set up Villages, and is always looking for new houses. He did one on top of our closet.

What a beauiful job you've done decorating for Christmas. I love the red plates in your hutch and the very natural centerpiece on your table. Does it smell good, too? I have some bubble lights for our tree that were my grandmother's. They are so cool!

Miranda, I love your decorations! I wish I had a hutch. I'd decorate it according to the seasons too!

Hey, you had a question about my Roly-Poly santa cookies that I had posted.

Let's see, I didn't have to use a lot of the red food coloring to get that dough such a vibrant red. I think I used 2 Gerber baby spoonfuls. The great thing about the food coloring PASTE that the recipe calls for is that it's much more concentrated than the liquid stuff. I buy my food coloring pastes at Michael's but I'm sure you could find it elsewhere.

I hope that helps. Tell me if you end up making the cookies, will you? :)
