HO...HO.. HO.. I need a nap

(not the actual house, found via weheartit)

The holidays really are my favorite time of year, but by the time the new year rolls around, I just want to take a nap. I really do like shopping for gifts though. I love thinking about the joy on my kids faces as they see what they opened and had hoped for.
One tradition that I love to do every year around this time is to drive around and look at all the Christmas lights. There is a particular house we visit every year that seriously has like every lawn decoration you can think of. We love it.

We love to watch CBS's "Sunday Morning" show. This past week they did a feature on the storefronts in New York City at Christmas time. I seriously love the the "Lord and Taylor" window. The replicas of Christmas memories. Check out the retro kitchen.

Have a super duper Wednesday!


  1. I love driving around and looking at Christmas displays. The one you posted is one on the grandest scale. Good job enthusiastic homeowner!

  2. Haha oh my, I havent done that in a few years but your post has made me remember when my papa used to drive us around on those dark winter nights, and we would be mesmerised by all the crazy stuff going on in peoples gardens, hanging off roofs, and chimneys! Its such a fun memory for me :) I bet your little ones will remember it too when they're bigger xx

  3. I glad everyone else likes to do this to. Sometimes I think we may look crazy staring at peoples house, but we love it!
