House For Six

Merry Christmas From Our Home To Yours!

Deme CrinionComment
I meant to share a quick home tour earlier in the week, but we have a couple sick kiddos on our hands.  Sully is very concerned..."Mom.  This is going to be the worst Christmas ever".  Oh, to be five and facing your greatest fear of being sick on Christmas morning.  I'm pretty sure it will still be awesome.  Just with an added box of Kleenex and maybe a bag of cough drops in the stockings.

You never can predict how the week leading up to Christmas is going to shake out.  Very dear friends gifted us a cleaning service for Christmas and we decided to use it on the 22nd.  We were set to host Christmas dinner and having the task of cleaning off my plate was such a HUGE relief.  It had been a long time since our house was cleaned from top to bottom and it was incredible!  It also gave us more time to think about our dinner menu and adding little holiday touches around the house without the rush or pressure.

We didn't pull out all the stops, but we did allow some room to get creative and spontaneous.  Basically, I found an excuse to make giant pompoms and throw them on the tree (after we used them for a snowball fight in lieu of actual snow #getittogetherohio)....

And with that, we wish you a very Merry Christmas!

We hope you are surrounded by love, and filled with the perpetual hope of this holiday season.

We'll be enjoying some time as a family to finish out 2015, and when we return after the New Year we'll be back as House For Six!  Can't wait to share the new site and a look at what's to come in 2016!  I feel so incredibly thankful for each and every one of you!


Thanks so much for reading! We would love to hang out!
