Christmas Fun!

I had a wonderful weekend. Friday evening my church's ladies group had a tour of Christmas homes. It was so much fun seeing everyones decorations. Then yesterday Misty and I went to a tour of historic homes in Phoenix. We were over the moon with excitement. 10 gorgeous homes and I can't even guess how many fantastic vendors to browse. You really can't take inside home pictures. But I did snap a couple of things....
One home had the singing Christmas trees in their backyard by the pool!

The home tour provided trolley rides to the different homes...Hallelujah!  It was a lot of walking!!
Phoenix is an interesting city.  Here in really the downtown area...and they allow chickens!
I live in a subdivision in the country and I can't have chickens!!


Isn't this doll amazing.  This was our favorite home and I snuck this picture!!  Bad Ceekay!  We were squealing like little piglets in every room.  It was so sweet.  These homes are VERY small built in the 20's, but full of character!
How about this for a mailbox?  All the bills for the Mail....and the goodies and packages for the FeMail!!

We finally got someone to snap our picture.  We just had the best time!






I am still tweaking Christmas around our home.  Boy you go to these tours and get more ideas!!  But I really think I am about done.  I KNOW my body is about done!!  Hope you all had a great weekend too!!

Hi Ceekay,
What a wonderful tour you were on and didn't you have fun! You look fabulous amd I'm glad you enjoyed your weekend. I had a great weekend myself as my first granddaughter was born Saturday afternoon! She's the first girl in the family of seven boys! Unfortunately she's out on the west coast and I'm on the east. Hope to give her a hug in the Spring. Enjoy your week, sweet lady.

Christmas Blessings,
Sandi

I love Christmas tours but haven't been on one in years. Great photos. I love little homes from the 20's also because they do have so much character.

Cute photo of you two! Glad you had a wonderful time. It's always fun to go on a home tour, but especially when the homes are decorated for the holidays. Thanks for taking us along.

That sounds like it was fun. What a great thing for the ladies church group to do! I am totally in love with your adorable baking Santa! I want him. LOL! I also really got a big kick out of that mailbox too. Merry Christmas!

How fun to go on a Christmas home tour. I always wish they would let you take pictures inside the houses. It's hard to remember all the good ideas.
You look great in the picture and your house is looking very festive too.

Oh how fun! I love touring homes at Christmas. There are always those that I wonder what people were thinking, and others that make me go home and want to throw away all my things and start over! Love the mailbox, great picture!

Ceekay, Y'all look so cute. What a fun tour! Love the mail and fe-mail boxes! This sounds like such a good time. Your little baking Santa is so cute, and I love the way you've displayed him. I also really like that Santa in your header. laurie
