On Tuesday morning I went to pick up my older son at a friends house. I was lucky enough to be invited in to one of the most wonderful homes I have seen in years. This home was still decorated for Christmas. It was like being in a wonderful Christmas store and Mary Englebreit’s house all rolled up into one. Carla had 12 Christmas trees up! It was a feast for my eyes. Everywhere I turned another beautiful room. She is working on three more trees in the basement for next year! I wish I had taken my camera.
My boys make houses every year and I love them to watch them decorate and have a fun afternoon. It may not be Mary Englebreit, but it is one of our fun traditions.
