Kim Silvestri of Conway extends the characteristic clean lines and brightness of her home to her holiday décor. The four bedroom three-and-a-half bath home is located at Spencer Mountain at the Lake in West Conway.
Kim’s family includes her husband Don and three grown children. Cassie, one of their twin daughters, is married to Michael McCullough, and they live in Rogers with son, Miles. Their other daughter, Chelsea, is married to Matthew McShane, and they live in Fayetteville with children Arden and William. Their son, Connor, is in his last year of dental school in Memphis.

Lenett and Steve Thrasher of Greenbrier celebrate Christmas surrounded by family and friends — and wonderful décor that speaks volumes about their love for the holiday.

Choir music, selfies with Santa and his elvish helpers, hot chocolate and special treats for the kids will be a part of this year’s family-oriented Conway Regional Tribute Tree lighting event on Thursday, December 1.
