Day 22 – Advent Calendar

Get Christmas Pampered!  Take a bubble bath to Christmas music, paint your nails a bright red, green or silver, and sit back and relax!

{You may choose to simplify the process big-time.  It doesn’t need to be time-consuming, stressful, or cost you anything.  Do what works for you and enjoy the season with the ones you love!!}

Alternative Activity:  Take a moment to enjoy a Crackling Fire!  If you don’t have a fireplace, here is one below (you can watch it for up to 3 hours long)!  Be sure to turn up the volume!

{Holiday Homes Tour}

This HoLiDaY Scott and I were asked if we would participate in our town’s Holiday Homes Tour to help raise money for a non-profit animal shelter, called the Castaways.   How could we say “No”?  WaLtEr our chocolate lab is a rescue dog.  So here is a sample of what people saw on the tour:

On the front porch were these chairs with a sign that said "LeT It SnOw". The weather man must have thought it said "Rain" rather than "Snow", and rain it did all day long!! However, it only added to the ambiance - cozy and warm inside with Lara's aromatic potpourri filling the house, Christmas music, lots of Christmas lights, and a crackling fire!!

The Front Door.

The Entry.

A greeting to all who visited!

Walter stole the show by sitting in this very spot all after noon with his reindeer head band. And yes, the K-State footbal game played (on mute) durng the open house! They won and are headed to the Cotton Bowl!! Yay!! - (I had to include that since Scott, Lara, and her husband, Doug are all K-State alums and very proud Wildcats!! :) )

What a sport!

In case you were hoping to see the Master Bedroom, that’s another post I will share in January (hopefully).  I spent a couple of months doing a room make-over and want to show you my finished product!!  StAy TuNeD!!
