Once again, I have loved having so many of you stop by for my annual Christmas tour this year!  I had so many pictures, I decided not to overwhelm you, but to spread the joy out a little bit, so I’m sharing a couple more spaces this week.  In case you missed the main tour, find it here!  And at the bottom of this post, I’d love to have you link up your own holiday home!  The link party will appear on the blogs of those of us who shared our homes in this year’s 12 Days of Holiday Homes tour!


Over the past few years, it has somehow accidentally become a Christmas tradition for us to have a hot cocoa bar in the kitchen.  And I think it’s a great tradition, so we will keep it going as long as we can!

I always have the mugs handy, along with a few spoons and toppings to make the perfect cup of hot chocolate!



This year, the gumballl machine full of marshmallows is the kids’ favorite!  (And it works like a charm!)




And just like last year, I’ve got a free chalkboard printable if you’d like to use one for your hot cocoa bar!  Click here to download.




It’s a fun and easy Christmas tradition, and a huge hit at parties and weddings as well!  And all this talking about it has put me in the mood for some!  Enjoy, friends!  Click here to see last year’s version and Christmas tour!
