(Dec 22) Christmas

Our 1st real Christmas in our Tiny House. :) Very exciting. Kim was a bit disappointed that we hadn't had time to decorate our house at Arlington and we'd been busy working every day we were at the Cabin so I took some time to decorate when I came out this week by myself. She was coming the next day with the grandson and I knew it would make her day. I hung some lights, put up a tree, stocking and some decoration. My cell phone had died that day so she couldn't call me to let me know she was on her way or had arrived. Since our driveway is no longer a driveway, more like a swamp, she would have to park up at the road (600 ft away) and walk down to the house in the dark by themselves. As they got closer and closer to the house, she kept mentioning to the grandson how bright the house looked tonight. As they cleared the trees, she could see that it was lit up with christmas lights. There was also the tree sitting in the window, all lit up. They both started squealing. I stepped out when I saw them with a big "HO! HO! HO!" After they got settled in, we just sat around for a while soaking it all in. Christmas in the woods in our own Tiny House. What could be better!

House as you approach from the road

Gotta have a tiny tree in a tiny house! :) Included as ornaments are a deer, hummingbird, owl, fox, squirrel, butterflies, dove and chickadee. 

Pick your favorite decorations and rotate them out each year. 

Couldn't resist the woodland stocking!

Nativity scene Kim had given her to her mother a couple of years before she passed away. Great to find a place for it here so that she's with us. 

The wreath seemed to beg to be put on the bathroom door. LOL It actually looks great with the iron hardware. I hung it with some fishing line and a tack as I didn't want to put a nail into it.
Happy Holidays to all. May your dreams be filled with Tiny Houses, friends and family. We wish you the best!!


  1. I stumbled across your blog today and have been reading it all day. I love what you and Kim are doing. I must say that when I got to this post, it made me tear up. What a great relationship you and your wife must have for you to take time away from your intended chores to do something so special as to decorate your home for Christmas for your wife.


    1. Susan, I'm so glad you found us! This has been such a great project. We come out with a list of things to accomplish. Sometimes it gets done, sometimes not. We always seem to have a good time though. :) One to two more weekends and we'll be finished with the house portion. It's been a long 2 1/2 years but one that we'll never forget. Thanks for the awesome note!
