Morehouse Christmas Home Tour 2015

Hello:  Our Family had a Wonderful Christmas Season this Year and Our Wish is that You had a Fabulous time during the Holidays as well!
 Rick and I are preparing to put away all of the Christmas Decor, but wanted to share Scenes from Our Home during Christmas 2015 .... Welcome to Our Home Tour....
Christmas without Snow?  Yep, No Snow on Christmas this Year....But, it Snowed Today!  
The Morehouse Home we Lovingly Named Morehouse Manor

Welcome, Come on In, It's Cold Out There...
Our Entryway:  We Live Across the River from Louisville, Kentucky - You know the Home of the Kentucky Derby!  You can't get away with Not Loving Horses when you Live here.   
Our Entry Way
Also in the Entryway is this Replica of a Swedish Mora Clock.  I had wanted one for years and My Sweet Hubby Rick surprised me for My Birthday.  His name is Cogsworth and of course he had to be Decorated for Christmas. 

The Christmas Mouse

As you will Soon See - I LOVE Christmas! 
We have 14+ Trees Throughout Our Home and Yes, I have named each of them :).  
The Dining Room:   Our Dining Room Tree is named "Home for the Holiday's" as that is where Our Family Comes Home for Family Time, Fun and Feast.

The Living Room:  The Living Room Tree is called "I'll Be Home for Christmas".  It's a Promise and a Tradition Our Family makes Each Year to Gather Together on Christmas Day and Open Presents from Each Other!! 
"I'll Be Home for Christmas"

The Kitchen and Breakfast Nook:  The Heart of the Home!

Creepy Elf Tree

The Powder Room:  It's a must to add a Little Christmas Cheer to Every Room of the House! 

The Powder Room

The Master Bedroom:   The Master Bedroom Tree received a Makeover this Year - It is Now "The Blessings Tree".  In Honor of God and all of the Blessings He has Bestowed Upon Us!   It is Adorned with Messages of "Peace", Angels, Churches and Heavenly Sparkles.

"The Blessings Tree"

I got My DIY On and Made the Book Wreath that is Above the Bed - I Love It! 
The Master Bedroom
The Master Bathroom:  Just a Little Touch of Christmas.  I really wanted to add a tree to the Center of the Master Bathroom, but the Hubby said he doesn't want it to poke his butt when he gets out of the shower.  Such a Party Pooper - Maybe Next Year :).

Let's Head Upstairs 

A New Addition to our home this year was a Driftwood Horse that My Friend, Judy Mudgett, Creatively named Sycamore.  Sycamore is in the Indiana State Song and is a Tree from which he was originally was created.

Melissa's Office:  "The Birdhouse Tree" - This Theme was Created from the Shape of the Room.  The Ceiling Vault and Rounded Window Creates a Birdhouse Effect. 

My Bubba's Room:  I still call this room My Bubba's Room even though he became a High School Teacher and moved out Three Years Ago! :(    It is decorated in a Woodsy Theme and the Tree is Named "A Country Christmas".

Melissa's Craft Room:  The Craft Room Tree is Named "The Giving Tree" as this is the room where we Wrap Gifts, Repurpose, Create and Craft.  It's a Such a Fun Room :).   

The Guest Bedroom:  This Room was Redecorated over the last Year and The Tree is appropriately named "The Coastal Tree" as it feels like we should be on the Beach.


The Guest Bathroom:  The Coastal Guest Bathroom with a few little touches of Christmas. 

Time to Head to the Lower Level....

Santa's Workshop :  As you enter the Lower Level you will find My Favorite New Christmas Scene this Year that I have named "Santa's Workshop".  The inspiration came from the Handmade Doll that my Grandma made me over 40-years-ago that Santa is holding.  She is no longer with us, but I felt her presence Christmas Morning through this Display.

There are Toys in the Workshop you would find from years ago such as Raggedy Ann, a Jack-in-the-Box, Fisher Price Pull-Along Phone and Blocks. It was so much Fun putting this display together.  


Santa's Naughty and Nice List has our Grandkids and Lil' Nephew's Names at the Top.  I hope someday that they think I was the 'Cool Grandma' like I thought of My Grandma. 

This Tree was the Most Fun Tree to put together than Any other Tree in the House....

Game/Buffet Room:  This room serves a dual purpose, it is the Game Room most of the time, but During Parties I convert it to Buffet Style for Serving Meals.  Someday I would love to convert to a lower level kitchen.  

Rick's Office:  We are in the process of redecorating Rick's Office to "Rick's Man Cave".  It will have an Aviator Theme because of his Love for Planes. 

The Lower Level Living Room:  The Tree is an Icy Winter Wonderland Tree. 

The Lower Level Foyer:  This area leads to our Patio and is by our Game Tables.  We named the Tree "The Nutcracker Suite" as My Padre has been buying Nutcrackers from Auctions for this area. 

The Lower Level Bathroom:   This room was redecorated this year and it was fun adding new Christmas Touches. 

The Theater:  One of Our Favorite Trees is "Frosty".  It's a Little Dark in this Room, as it should be, but in person He is sooo Cute. 

Our Family Wishes You the Happiest 2016!!!
The End!!
