Christmas tree at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast

No, I’m not going to break out in song (that’s a good thing for anyone within earshot). but I wanted to share our Christmas tree with you at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast.  One of the nice things about living in an old house is that our foyer is huge by today’s standards.  We put our tree at the staircase so guests can enjoy all sides of it as they head up to the guest bedrooms.

Nutcrackers on the Dining Room mantel

In addition to the tree we have an army of nutcrackers throughout the house.  A recent guest wanted to know how many we have.  The answer is too many when it comes to packing and unpacking them but I suspect there are a couple hundred of them standing sentry around the the house.  Here are a few of them that are in our dining room, making sure the our guests are being looked after.

More of them

Speaking of an army of nutcrackers looking after our guests, this time of year we need to take time out of our busy schedules and think about our military, especially those troops that won’t be home to celebrate the holidays with their friends and family because they are deployed defending our freedom.

That’s enough…Yes, there are still more in the dining room.

We also need to pray for the families of those that won’t be coming home because they gave their lives fighting for our freedom.  Freedom isn’t free and thousands of our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines have paid the ultimate price for us to enjoy the life we have and freedoms we enjoy.  My Christmas wish is that we could have peace on earth and goodwill towards man.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Kathy and Mike at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast.  We hope that 2012 was a good year for you and we wish you much success in 2013.
