|The hutch holds our Woodlands china, crystal bowls and decanters, and beer steins from Germany, Prague plus several bottles of our best whisky. :)|
|Any ornament to remember our trip to Paris while we living in Scotland for a year.|
|A hand-painted ornament from my mom years ago.|
|More memorable ornaments, like the star on the right from a Hill Country town called Gruene, TX.|
|Our first family Christmas ornament! My husband loves penguins so this was perfect. :)|
|YES, presents are wrapped & under the tree. I finished my shopping weeks ago!!|
|My mom does a new Santa painting every year, and I absolutely love these two that she's gifted me!|
Now to show you the rest of our Christmas...
|The quads first Christmas art project, a surprise from my nanny and my mom who were brave enough to dip eight little hands into green paint!!|
|The artwork hangs proudly by the front door, next to my always-festive hallway table.|
|The photo on the left is our Christmas card photo this year; the large number 4 was a very thoughtful gift from my dad and his wife; and the photo on the right is the quads at one month old, while in the hospital's NICU.|
|The top of my piano holds all my crystal and glass frames, which are filled with photos I love to see every day from the night the husband proposed and our wedding to our maternity shoot and the latest quad pictures.|
|I tucked in sprigs of holly berries and festive things for a five second decoration.|
|A wreath on the guest room door.|
|A little touch of Christmas in the babies' room!|
|My simple kitchen table centerpiece.|
|A banner I assembled from Hobby Lobby, it says "Merry Christmas" in French.|
|The scene over the kitchen table.|
|My Christmas card display on the pantry door.|
Ta-dah! That's the Christmas tour of our small and crowded little home. It was tricky to take photos around all the baby paraphernalia everywhere, so I have to keep it honest. The mantle and the kitchen table typically look more like this...
Merry Christmas, y'all!
