A Few of My Favorite Things

One thing I love about this time of year is getting to enjoy a few of my favorite things.

Packed away carefully for most of the year it is always a thrill to bring out ornaments that evoke happy memories.

Helping two friends with decorations this year I was so drawn to their Byer’s Carolers collections that I just had to have one for myself…

  6. loved each and decoration and ribbon. Both of girls have commented several times how much the both love to be at your home…not just see it…be there! Must be something about Mr.and Mrs. Claus that reside there!

      I LOVED seeing them last night. Your girls are both beautiful inside and out and it is so much fun seeing them with their own little ones now. Hopefully this cold I have will go away and I can come and hug some babies! Merry Christmas!
