BooMama’s Christmas Tour of Homes

by jessicaturner on December 15, 2008


Since I am doing Ali’s December Daily album project, I wanted to include a day with photos of our Christmas decorations. BooMama’s tour of homes gave me added motivation. So, without further adieu, here are a few shots from our cozy condo. There are two shots that include churched – can you find them? Kind of like Where’s Waldo… If you still need that perfect Christmas gift, I hear it is a great book. :) 

We love our nativity set. Next year it is not going to be able to be on the floor… 
We added a new stocking this year! The canvas next to Elias’s stocking I made using a Trader Joe’s grocery bag! Isn’t it cool? I love how it turned out. 

We have an affinity for penguins ever since Matthew’s book Provocative Faith came out (because of the penguin on the cover). I just checked and you can get it on Amazon for a penny! This is one of my favorite books Matthew has written. These are just a few of the many that we have.
I love this snowman.
I have a thing for glitter. On this table, notice the glitter tree, scrapbook page with glitter, glittery pinecones and shimmery angel light. A bit much? I think not. If you look carefully, you can see me snapping the picture… 
And what house would be complete without a baby Santa hat in a carseat? 

Be sure to check back later today for the winners of the Elle’s Studios/Die Cuts with a View prizes and an update on my December Daily album.

Love your decorations! Aren’t babies just adorable in santa hats? I still try to get my toddler to wear a santa hat (which he doesn’t mind, thank goodness!)!

Oh that last picture was really a treat!Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Oh, isn’t the Chicco the most awesome carseat ever? We love ours, and the stroller. Unfortunately, Zeke, at 7 months old, has exceeded the length limit for the seat. So he’ll be moving up to a less-convenient “big boy” car seat after Christmas!

Oh, that is just the coziest looking Christmas… and I LOVE the bag canvas. Could you seriously be more creative?!?!

The thought of E. in the tree and Nativity next year makes me chuckle… each stage is going to be so darn fun… and I love that you enjoy each and every one of them.

Such a darling Christmas home! That canvas is fantastic! And such a lovely nativity! I think the nativities are becoming favorite part of looking at all these gorgeous homes…they’re all so beautiful and unique!

Hey – – – I know ANOTHER Jessica Turner right here in Indiana. When I saw your name in BooMama’s list I WONDERED – – – but nope, you are not the one I know, at least not until now.

Everything looks festive.
