Our Halls are Decked

Today is the first day of December…so the halls around here?  Oh they are decked.

I might like snowmen.

Also?  If you are looking for more about yours truly?  I am the featured blogger today on The Red Dress Club.  I almost fell over in shock and honor when Cheryl asked me.  So please don’t leave me alone over there. Don’t let them regret their choice.  Because I am all sorts of giggly and nervous over here.


Have a lovely Wednesday.

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. Oh, how fun! Heading over there right now….and I, myself, might like Santa Claus if you peeked around my house right now!

  2. I love seeing Christmas decorating pictures – more please!! 🙂

  3. Yay for decorations! They look great! Want to come over and do my house next?? I’m hoping to get started this weekend…

    • We are doing our tree this weekend! I am super excited…although a bit nervous of how the toddler is going to treat the tree. eek!

  4. Old school lights? Boom. I knew I loved you. We still sport the non-energy efficient bulbs too and multicoloured I might add. We’re all about nostalgia and lack in the Martha Stewart-ish style appeal. It’s about memories and wackiness. Hm…just like family.
    Going to swing by and check your debut!!!

    • oh you are going to LOVE our tree then. We use the monster dork bulbs from like 1972. They are AWESOME! I love a good tacky tree…made with love instead of matchy matchy 🙂

  5. oooh how fun! you are on top of things! we are going to get a tree on saturday! also i love your nativity scene, it is very elegant.

    • thanks! we are doing our tree this weekend too. that nativity scene looks way better in pictures than in real life, but it was free from my mom, so I love it 🙂

  6. Happy December!

    The only thing I noticed missing were red & green peanut butter M&Ms!

    • because I ate them all! Ha! Just kidding…they will be there soon! And? I will take pictures! Don’t you worry! Happy December to you!

  7. Cute, cute! love it! And congratulations, will have to go and check you out over at the rdc 🙂

    • thanks, girl! I love the holidays. they are way fun. and I love the rdc…so I am all honored to be over there!

  8. Love getting into the Christmas spirit! Great decorations, those paper chains are fun to make!

    • yes, we do love this season around here! And Eddie “made” that chain at daycare on Tuesday. We are supposed to rip of a ring until christmas, but I can’t bear to do that to his first chain 🙂

  9. I will be starting my decking this weekend.

    Although Himself and I are currently in deep philosophical discussions.

    About our complicated Jewish Christmas?


    About artificial trees. Which I MAY be actually leaning towards finally, after 42 years of staunch rejection.

    Stay tuned.

    • i have never had a fake tree. ew. you can SO tell it’s fake. it even FEELS fake. wait…still talking about a tree right? RIGHT?!
