    Looks like they are ready for a family Christmas dinner. Makes me miss the family gatherings when I was growing up, my mom is 10th of 10 children so always a ton of aunts, uncles and cousins. But as the aunts and uncles started passing away the gatherings got smaller and isn’t the same as it was growing up.

    I do love this home, I want to ask the owners for a plate of cookies and milk and make myself at home. 🙂

      When I saw it I assumed B&B. Heheheh. Your insight made me smile, and made seeing this VERY FINE house even more of a pleasure. 🙂

    If I could …I would sign on the bottom line! If its still available in 2 years! Texas doesn’t tax military retirements and other taxes are exempt. Wouldn’t change a thing!!!!
    It will keep me and my husband busy enough to keep on top of! I appreciate these emails so much, they brighten my day that i can step into any home I can dream of and not have to travel to get there!
    It had me at the 50’s Christmas folding card tables!

    I love love love this house (I could even live with the white kitchen), I’m not fond of white kitchens, but this house is wonderful. I’m 8 of 10 kids, and this house brought me right back to where I grew up and Christmas memories. Our house didn’t have that grand entrance but everything else was similiar. Kelly this one made my day. Thanks
