Christmas 2008---------> Welcome to our Home!

Merry Christmas from our house to yours!
It has been snowing for 5 days, so it is all snowy and beautiful.
You don't need to knock!
Just come right in.

This is our LR from the entry way as you walk in the front door. Straight ahead is the piano and LR tree's. to your right is the entry which leads into the other part of the house. If you look to the top of the picture - you can see the mistletoe!

Please come in and share a cup of hot chocolate with us. You actually have a choice you can add peppermint, caramel syrup or rasberry and a scoop of vanilla ice cream to make a yummy treat to share. Lots of cookies are here on our treat table. (More deatils on that and other family fun for Christmas added daily for the next week on

You can see the tree tour of my friends tree's at the bottom of the blog. There are garland ideas too. So happy you are here!

Hi...I was searching Christmas decorating enthusiasts on Blogger and found your beautiful website. I am a children's musician from New Hampshire and I think you would enjoy a song I wrote about Christmas decorating called "The House on Christmas Street." If you want, you may listen to it at Please give it a listen and let me know if you like it!
Thank you so much!

Judy Pancoast said...

Paula...I'm so glad you like my song! Thanks for coming by and listening to it. I really appreciate your passing your son's email would you mind telling me his first name so that I can address him properly in the email? Thanks!!
I listened to your daughters' song....just beautiful...a wonderful arrangement also. She has a lovely, lovely voice. Please write to me at and tell me more...because their myspace doesn't have any info. On your blog you said it was your family, but in your post you said it was your daughters....
I'd like to know more about it! can't possibly have been married 35 look about 25 in your photos!
