Christmas Tour of Homes with The Nester
Thanks for stopping by! Grab a cup of coffee, or tea, or cider, or wassail, or Dr Pepper and enjoy our Christmas decorations!

I really wish I could have everyone over to my home for a Christmas Blog Friends Party but this will have to work for now!

Our Christmas tree. We bought this after our first married Thanksgiving and it was the perfect size for our apartment when we lived in Waco. I love the skinner size.
Our Christmas tree skirt is from Africa. We bought it at Amani Ya Juu and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
Of course, we have a couple more Baylor ornaments, but this is my favorite! my mom got me this when I was still an undergrad. Sic 'em Christmas!
Another sweet ornament from Amani in Africa.
I had this made for our First Christmas ornament.
Love monagrams...this is from Pottery Barn a couple years ago.
Another Africa ornament.
This is from our vacation to Upstate NY summer 2008.
Our chili pepper Santa from Santa Fe. This was from our summer 2006 trip.
John makes fun of this but I love it! My mom gave me this sweet ornament this year. It's so old...
It still has the sticker on the back that says, "Made in Western Germany."
Tabletop Christmas tree
I would love more Christmas pillows..I love them!
Sweet snowman candle. I also love this Christmas has old fashioned jingle bells and little gingerbread men in there!
I LOVE nativities! I have a few that I wasn't able to put out this year due to lack of space, but I have my favorites...
We got this one in Santa Fe. It is made out of driftwood.
My mom gave me this one from her collection this year.
This one is from Africa.
Another one from Africa...hand carved!
This is up all year, but it's my Madonna and Child Sid Dickens tile.
Southern Living Christmas...LOTS of good yummy recipes!
Cute little fat snowman and a container to hold all of our Christmas cards. I love going to the mailbox everyday and opening Christmas cards!!
Sweet little gingerbread boy and girl in my kitchen.
