Holiday Home Tours with Authors!


Welcome! We're so glad you've decided to drop in. As you may know, a number of novelists have gotten together to wish you a warm and blessed Christmas season, so come on over to my house, then come back here to visit the lovely Maureen Lang, the next stop on the tour. But don't stop there. You've got Angela Elwell Hunt, Robin Lee Hatcher, and a host of others to visit. So have fun!

God's best to you this wondrous season!

Karen & Don...and the doggies!

What a great idea! And one of my favorite places to hang out, especially on a Tuesday. Merry Christmas to you and Don!

Karen, you hit the the most important points of all in this tour: Christ is the center of the celebration. Friends and family are all welcome, Family cannot draw close enough, (You and Don in that last pic are soo together--Love it!) AND (with NO apologies at all to Louisa May Alcott who wrote in Little Women, "Christmas won't be Christmas without any presents." I say you TRULY had it right--Christmas isn't Christmas without our doggies!!!
God bless all,
Cathy Marie Hake

So tickled you're all enjoying the tour. You can tell Don and I had a blast doing the video. And taking the pictures. Christmas hugs to you all!

A great way to start my day! I loved your white elephant and of course, the dogs. Merry Christmas to you both from Jane & Jerry

Thanks, Karen! What a blessing to see so many decorations declaring what Christmas is all about.
My dogs watched it with me and now they're giving me "the look." The one says 'how come they get to chase balls and we're inside?'

Crystal Laine Miller said...

A girl after my own heart--dogs and outside for Christmas! :) Loved that!

Merry Christmas!

Karen, loved the tour outside your home! Can't believe I don't see any white anywhere on the ground! :) It's a wintery snowland here in MN! Thanks for sharing your hubby and puppies!

Merry Christmas,

Mimi, the snow here is very well behaved. Stays up in the mountains! Seldom visits the valley floor. I remember praying for snow for Christmas as a kid, but as an adult, I'm just as happy not to drive in it. Especially after doing so for 20 years when we lived outside of Chicago!

So enjoy your snow!

Thank for the tour! Love the puppies, what a great tail! I've never seen one so lush.
Happy holidays to all of you!!

Thanks, JD. I've considered putting Endust on her tail so she can do the dusting for me.
