Come on in! Welcome to The Rickard House as part of BooMama's Christmas Tour of Homes.
Come on in to our living room. Here is our Christmas Tree that I love to decorate. I changed it up a little bit this year, but overall, I like it:
I never quite know what to do with my mantle, but I decided to display Allison's Christmas pictures. That was all fine and dandy until I couldn't put my fingers on her Christmas picture from last year. My very favorite pics are the two on the left:
I took the minimalistic approach to Christmas in my dining area (that sounded like I know what I'm talking about - don't kid yourself):
Finally, I have a lovely tree in my kitchen where I stick my hodge-podge of ornaments. Allison loves this tree, and I love it being in the kitchen. That is our gathering place:
Thank you for going on our tour. Merry Christmas from our house to yours!
P.S. I almost forgot a quick-and-easy recipe. And it doesn't get any easier than this:
Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mint Knockoffs
1 pkg of mint chocolate chips
1 sleeve of Ritz crackers
Melt the chips. Dip the crackers. Dry them on wax paper.
It doesn't get any easier than that, and they are "slap your mama" good!
And friends of mine, did you really think you were going to get the Peanut Butter Buckeye recipes?.....Not on your life!
