Warning: Christmas Decor Overload!!!!

I was SO excited to see that Boo Mama was hosting a virtual Christmas Tour of Homes!
BooMamaChristmasTour
How fun is that?! I decided to join along and take you on a quick tour---so go grab a nice, warm cup of cocoa and enter in...we'd LOVE to have you!

Welcome to our Home!
Here is our main tree in the living room...ahhhhhh, We always have a fire going during the winter! (Even IF it is 70 degrees outside in Texas!) Its not Christmas unless there is a fire in the fireplace! ;)



This is my MOST FAVORITE part of the entire house!!! As I was hanging the stockings by the chimney with care, I couldn't help but chuckle as I quickly ran out of room on the mantle! WHAT A BLESSING! And to think that it used to be so cold and empty...(I smile every time I glance over in that direction...it just warms my heart! God is SO unbelievably gracious!)



Our little tree skirt that matches the stockings...



Mr. Santa who sits with us in our hallway...overlooking all the festivities



Our entry way table...



This is one of my favorite new editions! The QUAD TREE! Let's take a closer look!



Baby's 1st Christmas ornaments with the pictures of Benjamin, Ethan, Andrew, & Savannah.



I just LOVE this tree with all the individual ornaments for each child! SO special...you see this tree immediately as you walk into our home.



Gotta have some Christmas cheer in the kitchen!



A closer look at the kitchen tree: the Steece Gingerbread family and candy canes for each piece of the Steece fleet.



More festive kitchen plates and platters! I LOVE seasonal serving pieces (can't you tell?)!



Mr. Snowman warming himself by the fire and a family pic from Christmas '07



Still lovin' those Christmas platters!



Gotta have a candy dish with constant goodies to eat! (Pic of Christmas '07)



And I LOOOOVE this snowman! He sits right in the middle of everything!


May you all have a blessed Christmas full of laughter and love!!!
Merry Christmas from Joe, Suz, Benjamin, Ethan, Andrew & Savannah

Seriously, you have quads and you can decorate!?! I am struggling with a husband, dog, and an apt.

Your house looks fantastic! How do you keep the quads from breaking all your beautiful dishes? I can barely keep my 2 and 5 year olds from breaking all the ornaments on my tree :-).

Lauren said...

Beautiful decor! I love it! All those STOCKINGS... What a blessing! Thanks for letting us in! Merry Christmas to all of y'all!

Amy said...

Hey Suz! I laughed when I read what you said about running out of room on your mantle for stockings because as I hung our 5 up, I thought "Wow! This looks much different than last year." I am so excited about our first Christmas with our triplets.
Merry Christmas to you guys!

Your home is gorgeous! You're setting up traditions that will be special for your children in years to come. My twins are 7 and still love looking at their 1st Christmas ornaments. They also love the handmade ornaments they have made throughout the years. Those are my favorites too. You'll have those to hang on your quads tree once they are into preschool.
Thanks for inviting us all into your beautiful Christmas home.

SO FUNNY! Looks so much like my house!! We have a quads tree too with all the ornaments they receive in our entry way and then we have our themed one in the living room. We also have an ornament that has a mama papa and four kiddos but instead of gingerbread men, its penguins!! So cool right? I feel you on the mantle filling up!!
Looks beautiful girl, christmas decorations are so heartwarming. i wish sometimes they could stay up year round...

You're too much!! Where do you hide your wings?

Kalle said...

Your house definitely spreads the Christmas cheer. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Frugal Jen said...

Fabulous house and decorations! I had to smile when I saw how lovely and clean it is even with quads. The quad tree is my favorite!

Kristina said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the platters!!! I also love the snowman warming himself. I know that this year will be SO special and fun with the quaddies at this age!

beth ewing said...

beautiful. love the pottery barn stockings...we have them too. hope one day ours overtake the mantle like yours do (althought one at a time kids would be more my preference. hehe!)

The Porter Family said...

Your house looks soooooo GREAT!!!! LOVE IT :)

my blog said...

Everything looks absolutely perfect!!

Leigh said...

SO funny, we have almost the same exact stockings! Since we bought two of them 1 and 2 years ago for different kids, they don't have the pattern anymore, but this year I bought the Santa, Reindeer, and Dancer!!! I love them, and they were on sale! Cute Home!

Sheridie said...

It's me...the loyal lurker again! I LOVE your home! It's beautiful!

Your house looks great. I love Christmas platters and I especially love the pictures you have from past Christmases. That's such a good idea. I'm so impressed that everything looks so great and you have four little ones running around!

Hello blog buddies! It's me, Crouse! said...

Lainey-Paney said...

What's your secret???!!!

Alisa said...

Great Christmas decorations. I enjoyed them all.
