The Eve of Christmas Eve

A glimpse into my home. This is my favorite part of the house. We have an extra long livingroom. In the winter time I like the fireplace to be the center of attention. Even though we don't use it, it is one of my favorite things about my house.
Homemade ornies adorn my tree.

My dad added the Precious Moments Snowman Cookie Jar to my Snowman Museum.

I started collecting Madame Alexander ornaments several years ago. I was behind when I started my collection and I've let several get by me in the past few years. This beauty is one of my favorites.
A dancing snow couple, awwww...

Can't have enough redbirds.
My favorite kitchen snowlady. She's a cook if you couldn't tell.
A new addition to my dining area.
Another cookie jar.

I made this sleepy snowman after 9/11 in 2001. Notice the patriotic garb. I don't think I've made a snowman since.

Timmy, the grandbaby.
The top of my refrigerator.
I'm still working on the kitchen. I'll show you shots soon. It's freezing rain here in north Missouri and very cold. Please be safe while travelling to your destinations this week!!
