Christmas Tour of Homes


Hi Yall, Come on in and have a visit. I am so glad you stopped by for BooMama's Christmas Tour of Homes.

This year we will be in New Hampshire visiting with all of my family. I participated in the Tour last year and you can see how my house was decorated. If we were going to be here it would look the same. :-) So I thought I would share where we are going to be this year. My Aunt Polly & Uncle Butch live in a beautiful farm house that they have slowly over the years remodeled.
It has been snowing there and the views are just breathtaking. I asked my Aunt to take some pictures so I could show the kids where we were going to be. We are also going to visit NYC for a day and my cousin Rebecca told me last week that she got us all tickets to see the Lion King! We have not told the kids yet so shhhh if you read my blog and live in my town.
Thanks so much for stopping by! If you were here in Missouri I would make you a cup of peppermint hot chocolate!!


This is the view of their back yard.

You have a perfect setting for Christmas, and a lovely home! It stays warmish here, too, so I would love a little bit of snow...

Merry Christmas,

Your kids are so lucky. They are going to have a white Christmas. I grew up in Chicago and loved it (as a child not so much as an adult) and now that I live in Texas, I miss the idea of a white Christmas.

Enjoy your time in snowy NH. I'm in nearby MA. We've had a lot of snow this December - hope you have fun! I'm also wondering about the snapshots around the wreath. It looks very pretty.

This is a beautiful place. You should experience it in person. The hosts are the greatest in the world.
