Christmas at Our House, as described by Bradley Torreano of Allmusic, "shows the country star adding her name to the countless musicians who have released personalized Christmas albums." The album includes ten tracks of new material including some new material. It includes two tributes of the Christmas season, the title track and "From Our House to Yours", which Torreano described as "down home". It also includes cover versions of Christmas standards such as "I'll Be Home for Christmas" and "Winter Wonderland"; it also introduced what would become a holiday standard, "It Must Have Been the Mistletoe (Our First Christmas)". Torreano gave the album three out of five stars staying, "Her brand of country-pop may not appeal to all fans of the genre, but many country listeners will probably find this a nice Christmas album to play for the holidays."
