Christmas Traditions: The Kitchen

Probably the most important room during the holidays is the kitchen.

I love food. I love cooking food and I really love eating food. Probably why this site exists.

This room gets the royal treatment every holidays season. The Santa bowel bowl you see in the center of the island? Holiday M&M's...oh boi!

I have no idea where OhCountess got this little bit of holiday cheer, but seriously this is the coolest thing I've ever seen.

Santa's clothes hanging on the line!

I love it!
This plate rack on the wall is one of my wife's most brilliant decorating touches.

Each holiday, season or when ever she wants a change, all she does is changes the plates. OMG! How simple but how powerful. 

I never have to change out the rack, but she can change out the plates with ease.

I love my wife.

The corner where our sink is doesn't avoid the touch of Christmas cheer.

We have another string of Santa's clothes drying. This plate rack is always cool.

I'm surprise, but at first, people don't always know what it is.

(It's a snowman...shh)

Last, as we head to the mud room, We have this one last sign.

Bah! Hum Bug!

Happy Holidays!

Tomorrow, we are heading to Vegas. I'm sure I'll be sending posts from my phone until we are settled (like you really get settled in Vegas).

Stay warm!

I couldn't read any further, due to giggling ;-)

Santa 'bowel' is full of tiny chocolates? I'm rolling.

The utter cuteness of it all is fabulous. I adore the tiny little Santa clothes on the line. It is all just darling!

Your wife is fabulous!! Have fun in Vegas. One of my dearest friends and her hubs will be there Friday for the NFR ;-)

Wow. That was a completely unintentional funny. It's amazing how bowel will zoom right through spell check and I was hoping to type bowl. I changed it, but maybe I'll change it back... :-)

Thanks! My wife is really awesome. She doesn't miss a detail!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the clotheslines with Santa's clothes pinned to them. I need to get some of those! And a plate rack.

I love your decorations and that plate rack is a fab idea! Now where could I hang one???

and Santa's clothes line, - did she buy it or make it? I'm having a creative moment here, for next year!
