Do you live near Dallas, TX? Do you love looking at fancy Christmas decorations? Do 100+ year old Victorian homes do anything for you? If you answered yes to any of these questions you need to shake a tail feather and get your toosh up to McKinney, TX this weekend for their annual Holiday Tour of Homes. This year is super special because my parent’s house is on the bill. See the room I grew up in, though things look quite different these days. My mother has been killing herself for weeks spray painting taxidermy deer heads festive Christmas green, stringing up the biggest faux acorns you have seen in your life and lugging life size Santas that really wave up tall staircases. Stop by the pink Victorian house on the tour, find the cute short sassy red head or the tall lanky guy with glasses walking around like a proud peacock and tell them I sent ya. Here are a few pictures of their house last year just decorated for a normal family Christmas so you can imagine what it looks like this year. She lost count of how many Christmas trees she put up!
I’m sad to miss the tour, but alas I will be there this time next week for a baby shower so I will still get to see the house in all it’s Christmas glory. I’ll take and post some pictures then!
