Christmastime at the Tolberts!

Well, we are definitely ready for Christmas around here. We put up our tree and all of our Christmas decorations in plenty of time to enjoy them for a while before we head to SC for Christmas. I thought I would share a little tour of our Christmas-y home!

Front entryway ledge

Our 7.5 foot Tree!
(You would think that this being our third Christmas as a married couple, we would have a tree topper by now, but we haven't found one we really like alas, no topper...)

Living Room curtains

Nativity from Texas

Bolivian Nativity on the kitchen windowsill

Kitchen Table

Kitchen sink mat

More kitchen stuff

Back door

Our Advent calendar - a family tradition affectionately known as "Christmas in a Can"
(see below)

Coffee Table...on the left side you will see the can that keeps all of the Advent calendar supplies!

And my personal favorite...

Our stockings...all three of them!
(No this will not be her permanent stocking, but a friend gave it to me and I couldn't resist putting it up!)

Merry Christmas, everyone!


  1. Oops, I meant to comment on this post but commented on the Thanksgiving one. I love the Christmas decorations and Dad will especially like the Christmas in a Can reference.

    Love, Mom

  2. Beautiful Patty! Both your home and YOU! Let me know if that little package ever arrived (it came back once). xo, AP
