My name is Lynette and welcome to my blog. It's not like I had anything else to do at this time of year, but my daughter said, "Mom you've got to get started!". So, here I am. It's icy, snowy and cold outside, in Arkansas, no less. This is very unusual for this part of the country. This is what our house looked like today.

Okay, I know you Northerners are laughing, but things stand still here in Arkansas at the threat of snow.

Anyway, I thought what better day than this to figure out this "blog thing". I'm not very tech saavy. The most I usually do is e-mail and Google. But, I'm willing to try anything.

I've been into table decorating for the holidays this year. Our Minnesota kids were here for Thanksgiving, so I decorated a fall table. I thought you might get some decorating ideas for next year by sharing some of mine.

Here is our Christmas table.

Here is some more of my Christmas decor. I kind of had a green and brown theme going this year.

Here's a picture of our carolers that we bought at a craft fair a few years ago. They are actually made of sawdust! I love them!

My husband has wrapped our staircase with greenery and red ribbon every year for the past 17 years. He is very proud of it, so I had to show it off.

I even decided to decorate our kitchen mantle with greenery.

I hope you have enjoyed our Christmas Open House. I love this time of year, and even though I can get wrapped up in the decorating and the shopping etc., I try to remember what this season is really all about, and that's God sending His Son as Savior to the world. What a gift!

Merry Christmas!
