BooMama Christmas Tour of Homes 2008

So I posted our Christmas decor a few posts back but, in case anyone missed it, I thought I would participate in the 2008 Christmas Tour of Homes that BooMama so graciously hosted. I read about this from Kelly's Korner, which is a blog I keep up with daily!

I love Christmas because of the wonderful story of the birth of Jesus and the magic of that beautiful story. I also love this time of year because it's our anniversary month. We were married December 11, 2004 and it was the most beautiful ceremony I've ever seen, not just saying that b/c it was ours! haha... We just celebrated our 4 year anniversary and it's soo hard to believe how fast these years have flown by. If you were to tell me 4 years ago that our lives would be as they are now, I would have never believed you. God has blessed us sooo much and to see the growth and journies He's lead us through in just 4 years is amazing! Christmas will be extra special as well as our anniversary this year because it's our last one as just "Josh and Bekah". We are thrilled and can't wait for our 1st baby due June 9th! We MIGHT get to even find out, if Baby Kee participates, on Dec. 23rd what gender Baby Kee is!! What a great Christmas present huh??!!
I hope you all enjoy this Christmas season and reflect on the blessings He has given you. Below are all the pictures of our inside decorations. Our outside lights are up but it's gotten cold again so I don't have any pictures of the outside; I knew I should have taken advantage of the few nice days we had to take pictures. Enjoy!!

I love it all but my favorite is the "wild" tree in your guest bedroom. :-) This is just so much fun, thanks for having us.

I'm wild over your wild tree and those red feather trees! Very pretty decorations and so out-of-the-box. Love it!

Oh I just love everything, Bekah! I want to start a Dickens Village collection. I only have one that was my grandmother's. But you are quite the decorator!

Kelly said...

Everything is so cute!! You have your house really decorated and that's hard to do when you are pregnant!!! :-)
I really love your "wild" tree - that's kind of what I envision for Harper's room - only add in a little brown!

Carol said...

Merry Christmas!

Your decorations are amazing! I love the wild tree and the fact that you have more than one tree! The idea that most of your ornaments were wedding gifts is just awesome. This baby you are expecting is obviously coming into a home of love. God bless you and Merry Christmas!

The nursery tree is so beautiful! All your trees are, but this one has something special about it. I also like your little village houses. Thanks for the tour!
