The home of Andy and Jodi Lohrman on Murphy Road is one of the stops on this year's Tri Kappa Home Tour.

Sleigh bells ring

Are you listening?

The Lohrman's house

Is so glistening

A beautiful sight

Decorated just right

Showing you a winter wonderland.

The home of Andy and Jodi Lohrman located on Murphy Road. Andy Lohrman built the 3,100-square-foot lake view home in 2003.

When you first walk in the home, you will see a small tree decorated with antique Christmas cards sitting on a table Andy has built. The tree sets among a collection of hand-carved Santas that Andy has made. On the right of the foyer sets the home office, simply decorated with poinsettias and Christmas boxes.

The great room opens up with cathedral ceilings. The family's love for entertaining is evident with the openness of the kitchen, dining, living, and sitting room areas. Above the fireplace is a clock that Jodi's dad, Jay Pell, made. The fireplace is decorated with the family's hand painted stockings and hand carved nativity set made by Andy. Beside the fireplace is a Christmas tree decorated with the names of Jesus.

The dining room area is also where the couple home school their two daughters, Judah, age 9, and Sophie, age 4. The chalkboard that hangs on the dining area wall was made by Raymond Chamberlain. Also, on this wall are a bulletin board, U.S. and World maps, the school shelf made by Andy, and the kid's table and chairs made by Jay and JoAnn Pell.

The girls' bedrooms are located to the left of the great room. Sophie's room is decorated in Winnie the Pooh with a mural of the Hundred Acre Wood painted on her wall. She has a Christmas tree in her room decorated with Princess Tea Party toys. Judah's lavender room is decorated with By HOLLY NEIL

She has a Christmas tree in her room decorated with Princess Tea Party toys. Judah's lavender room is decorated with splashes of bright color. Judah used those bright colors to decorate her room's Christmas tree.

To the right of the great room is the couple's bedroom. Most of the furniture in this room was made by either Andy or Jay. The window and bed coverings were made by Jodi. Antique Christmas cards adorn the Christmas tree in the room.

Up the stairs is the girls' play area. The entertainment niche is covered by shudders hand painted by Jodi's sister, Jami Jenkins. Ornaments made by Judah and Sophie cover the Christmas tree in the room. On the other side of the room is a guest room that also doubles as a sewing room.
