Staying at my Mommy's

I've spent the last few Christmas's at my mom's house, which is about 45 minutes away. I didn't grow up in this house, so it doesn't really feel like "home." Mom and my step-dad have lived here for a while, so it's slowly starting to feel like my home since they live there. I actually live in the house I spent a lot of my childhood in, but without my parents here, it also doesn't feel like home. It's so strange! But anyway the wood stove at mom's makes it super cozy in the winter. Even though there are several spare bedrooms,  I like to sleep on the couch so I can be nice and toasty all night. Doesn't it look so warm and inviting?!

Pretty morning light. Mom and I like to enjoy a cup of coffee together in the morning.

 This is the baby Jesus ornament. He is ALWAYS in the center of the tree. 

And here's my little bed. I love curling up there and watching Elf. I usually watch it every night that I'm there, although I never make it much past where Zooey Deschanel is singing in the shower.

I apologize for being SO SO SO late on my Christmas posts. Although, I actually like going back through these pictures now and reliving a little bit of the fun and coziness :) My next post will be about some of the wonderful gifts that people gave me. I got some really special things from some wonderful family and friends.

oh a fire is always nice and the sound is so peaceful too. i know what you mean about not feeling like it is home mom is renting out our house because it is too big for her to live by herself and she now lives in another town close to work which is nice because she lives 30 min from me but going over to her apt is weird but whenever i am with my mom she makes me feel like i am home <3 love my mommmy :D

Isn't that interesting. Your long time home, with years of living in, doesn't feel like home either.

I'm glad that your moms home is beginning to feel that way. I think I were to stay there, I'd make my bed right by the wood burning stove.
