A Luz de Vela=Candlelight Walk

Hola Amigos! Seems like up here,  we are going to have a White Christmas after all! The kids are finally on Christmas Break and excited about Christmas! Time to celebrate the Season with the family.
I want to share with you a candlelight walk through our home. Today was a very dark and windy day, a blizzard is hitting us at this moment...not the best when you need to take blog photos, but perfect if you want to create an atmosphere of coziness with the warmth of aromatic candles, tucked in under a thick blanket and sipping a cup of hot cocoa! Ready?....let's go for a little walk.

Our entry comes to life with our simple and traditional tree, a candy garland to give the area a touch of whimsy, my FIL's sled from back when he was a little 7 year old and an old tool box filled with bags of treats to help us count down the days left for Christmas.

Here you are also going to run into our Baker Santa right next to one of his latest creations, a gingerbread house and a peppermint infused candle to put you right in the holiday mood!

Our Kitchen has little touches of Christmas here and there, because for us, the main attraction of this area are the different smells of the season... ginger, clove and spices! It sure feels like Christmas!

I am crazy about signs and this one is one of my favorites and since the kids are now off it will live to it's expectations...keeping a full Cocoa Bar for all to enjoy 24/7!

Even Mrs Claus and Santa share their love for cocoa and goodies around the kitchen!

Our kitchen faces the family room, to us our main room and here, a variety of Nutcracker Folks await friends and family  offering their cupcakes, gingerbread cookies and even s'mores, all with a smile of course.

There are trees around the house to make each member feel special...but a tree comes to life at night when all the lights shine and makes us feel all warm inside!

Each one with it's own magic!

Each one with it's own story!

All the elements above help fill this house with spirit of Christmas. But the most important one is Love! and that one my friends...no matter the frightful weather outside always shines with a light of its one creating the Picture Perfect HOME! Happy Holidays!
