I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart

I will honour Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!

~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

WELCOME TO MY CHRISTMAS BLOG!!

WELCOME TO MY CHRISTMAS BLOG!!

Christmas is my favorite Holiday and my favorite time of year!

I go all out decorating our small townhouse for all Holidays but especially Christmas!

Every room in our home has a different Christmas Theme and Color Scheme!!

I prove that you do not have to live in a large home to have several Trees, over 20 in all shapes and sizes!!

The majority of my Christmas decorations are placed in the same spot every year and I know that this is not what most Decorator's care for but it is like seeing old friends again when I decorate each year for Christmas.......

I do try to add a few new things and change up things a bit but for the most part, these decorations are part of my Christmas traditions and I will not change them until I can no longer decorate like I do......

This blog is dedicated to All Things Christmas!!

Christmas Home Tour, 2019 and Number of Trees Reveal......

  Welcome to my Christmas Blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas!!
I am so happy that you decided to stop by my Christmas Blog....

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

Well, here it is ......Christmas Eve!!!

Are you ready???

I have been ready for days!!!  I LOVE Christmas!!

In my last post, I completed my Christmas Home Tour, room by room........

Each post is now on my Side Bar so if interested, just click on each picture to see that post!!

Today, I am going to take you on a tour of our whole house , both inside and out, decorated for this Christmas!!!

But first, I want to Thank Bev, over at Eclectic Red Barn, for choosing my post, Christmas in the Living Room, Vignettes, from last week's Over the Moon Linky Party!!!
Thanks so much, Bev!!

Please stop by and link up to this wonderful party!!!

And I will be revealing just how many decorated Trees I have this year......

We will start in the parking lot in front of our row of townhouses, looking up at my house.......
Walking up to the Front Porch......
The flower bed under the Living Room window.....
The front yard.......
 Now let's go into the house......

Every room has a different color scheme and a different theme for Christmas.....

The Living Room.......

 Tree # 1
 Tree # 2
 Tree # 3
 Tree # 4
4 Trees decorated in the Doll House.......

Grand Total....21 Trees that I decorated in some way and 4 decorated Trees in Nelson Crest......

25 Christmas Trees Total for 2019......

Last year, there were a total of 28 Trees but I did pass some on to family at the end of last year......

So see......I am downsizing.......

A bit.....

People often ask me how long it takes for me to decorate my entire house.....

Now I have to say that I not only pack up all my normal everyday things but I also clean them so that I will not have to do it when I unpack them to put them back out.

I also give each room a good cleaning so that all I do is dust with Swifter dusters for the rest of the Holiday Season.....

Well, here is the breakdown:

Upstairs Hallway: 1 day
Upstairs Bathroom: 1 day
Master Bedroom: 2 days
Sitting Room: 3 days
Craft Room: 2  days
Front of the House: 2-3 days
Living Room: 4 days
Dining Room: 3 days
Kitchen: 3 days
Powder Room: 1-2 days
Den: 3 days
Doll House: 1 day

So it takes me roughly 25 days!!!!!"

Yep!!

Roughly 25 days!!

Now I ask you......

How can I possibly do all that after Thanksgiving and still get any joy out of the Christmas season....

We also celebrate both my sons Birthday's in December so now maybe you can understand why I HAVE to start so early!!!


 I hope you will stop by to visit again soon as I still have a few more Christmas related posts that I would like to share with you!!!

And thanks to all of you who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me this Holiday Season!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND  I HOPE YOU GET TO SPEND IT WITH THOSE THAT YOU LOVE!!!!

We will be......

Our Dining Room Table is set already for Christmas Eve Holy Supper tonight for our family of 5.......

  5. Debbie, I am amazed at your energy and your show-stopping Christmas trees and decor. I can’t imagine decorating that many trees and packing and unpacking. I know this is not an easy job, and you seem to do it with ease. I so enjoyed touring your home that is so festive and fun. All those who are fortunate to visit must be awe-struck! Happy New Year!

  6. Well, when my friends tell me I have way too many trees, I'm going to give them the link to your blog. This is yeoman's work, both prepping and eventually repacking and boy, did you really do a magnificent job, covering every single base. People's jaws must drop when they enter your home. I hope your holiday was very, very merry!
