I have a special post for you all today! My sweet friend Rachel at Mason de Pax is hosting her annual Christmas Nights Tour. Time to take a peek of some beautiful homes all lit up at night. I love this tour because I LOVE Christmas lights! Who doesn’t!? I can’t think of anything more beautiful than the glow of soft, twinkling Christmas lights. They make all of our homes feel so cozy and warm. If you are visiting from my friend Sarah’s blog Life on Virgina Street welcome! I’m so happy to have you over. :)
After you pass through our entry our formal living room is the first room you see. We finished building this home three years ago and this is my first Christmas having a tree in this room. I have absolutely loved it. There is nothing like a Christmas tree all lit up at night.

How is everyone doing with just days left before Christmas!? I can’t say that I’m ready (still so much to do!) but I can say that I am really enjoying having my kids out of school this week. This week before Christmas with my kids home from school is one of my favorite weeks of the year. I love having them all to myself to do all things Christmas! They are my best helpers and sidekicks around here and today I’m sharing a fun way they helped me decorate for the holidays. Mid November my kids started making Christmas countdown chains and snowflakes. LOTS of snowflakes. At one point our family room floor was covered in snowflakes.
Happy weekend everyone! Taking a quick break from all the Christmas decor (just a quick one!) to share a few fun recent finds with you today. Is everyone staying warm!? It seems like cold temps are happening all over right now. We are having colder weather than we’ve had here in San Diego in a long time. Today the high was in the 50’s which is not our norm! We are all loving it because it FINALLY feels like Christmas in December. My girls asked me today if it was going to snow.. ha! Um no. Our cold weather is short lived and looks like we’ll be in the high 60’s low 70’s by Christmas, but for now we’ll take it. :) I’m loving my new coat I bought and shared last week and feel like I bought it at the perfect time! I’ve hardly taken it off this week.
Hello friends! Yes! We are touring again. I’m on a tour bus that never ends. Ha! ;) The good news is that today’s stop promises to be pretty amazing! Welcome to the Deck the Halls Christmas Home Tour hosted by two of my darling friends – Jen from Decor Gold and Randi from Randi Garrett Design. If you are stopping by from Loi’s fabulous blog Tone on Tone hello and welcome! I’m so happy to have you over to my house today! I love having people over this time of year. :) Today we are talking dining rooms! Earlier this month I shared my Christmas tablescape with you. Here is a quick picture re-cap for anyone who missed it..

Well! We can’t take a Christmas tour of practically every room in my house without including the front porch now can we? I think not. And yes! It’s another fun Christmas tour so aside from my Christmas porch, you’ll also be able to check out other beautiful Christmas porches. Because who doesn’t love a porch decked for the holidays!? Anyone? I think not. :)
Chris from Just a Girl is hosting a week long “Welcome Home Tour” and I’m thrilled to be joining in the fun. I’ve met Chris and can honestly say that aside from being such a talented blogger, she is also incredibly down to earth and kind. And funny! Like really funny. She always makes me laugh and I love her personality! If you are visiting today from Katie at Bower Power welcome! You can see other rooms I’ve shared that are decorated for Christmas in this post. And my formal living room here that wasn’t included in that round-up. :)
For today.. on with the porch!
