It's a BLOGGY Christmas Tour!

Merry Christmas!! And WELCOME to the bloggy tour of Christmas in my home! Big THANKS go out to BooMama for hosting this event! You should check out her blog---it is HILARIOUS ya'll --& I'm NOT kiddin'!! AND since my spectacular computer skills currently prevent me from figuring out Mr. Linky---> you can find BooMama at http://boomama.net

Ok, ok back to the tour at hand! Grab a glass of eggnog, some delicious cheeseball and let's be on with the tour!! [Recipes included at the end of the tour]

Right this way ladies! & gentlemen if any are among us :)

The Christmas tree

Stockings hung by the chimney with care

In hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be here

My favorite Christmas greens

The little tree all in clear and white

Happy Holiday greetings atop the bookcase :)

The back door welcome!

Christmas just isn't Christmas without a favorite junkstore find on a junk hunt with Dad (the kissing Santa & Mrs. Claus) & an object made at a wonderful friend's house when we were just little girls (the stocking)

Ginny's Spiked Kicked-up-a-notch Easy Eggnog

1 carton of eggnog from store of choice
Dilute in beautiful glass pitcher with 1/3 milk (skim, 1%, 2%...they all work)
Ok...just so I'm clear 1/3 of the pitcher = milk & 2/3 of pitcher = eggnog...it's JUST too thick right out of the carton....I even do half and half sometimes ;)
3 - 6 (maybe 8) shots of Southern Comfort depending on just how spiked you want it
1/3 to 1/2 cup Splenda depending on how sweet you want it ;)

Mix all together in gorgeous pitcher. Pour into your most festive Christmas glass! Top with freshly grated (or from the seasoning rack) nutmeg. ENJOY!!

Connie's Cheeseball---FABULOUS!!
(makes 2 small or 1 large cheeseball)

2 8 oz. blocks cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup bacon bits
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 cup Miracle Whip or mayo of choice
1 cup pecans, chopped (reserve at least 1/3 to roll ball in)

Combine all ingredients. Divide into 2 if desired. Shape into ball using cellophane wrap. Refridgerate to harden. Roll in chopped pecans prior to serving. Serve with crackers or toasted french bread rounds. YUMMY!!!

I enjoyed your Tour of your Christmas Home. Love your fireplace Mantel, and built in Hutch. I notice these things, cause my dad's a finish contractor, and love decorating.

I hope your arm gets better;-))

Merry Christmas to your family,
Jeannene at Love Conquers All

Beautiful things and oh so homey! And the Santa boot behind the kissing couple...? My mom had one of those when I was growing up. I need to find out if she still has that. Thanks for the tour!
