Our Home at Christmas

Rustic corner fireplace at Christmas with German nutcrackers via

Welcome to our home.  The above picture was taken in our family room.  Let's start our tour in the kitchen.  The kitchen, breakfast nook, and dining room are all one open space.

Our sink with a holiday staple, Mrs. Meyers Iowa pine dish soap.  It's like a Christmas tree in a bottle.   It makes the chore of cleaning all those dishes that my holiday baking makes much more pleasant.
