Christmas Decorating

With the ridiculous amount of snow we got on Friday, I decided that it was time to do a little Christmas decorating. And with all of the vehicles were snowed in, it wasn’t like I could do anything else. So, I got my husband to drag up a few tubs of Christmas decorations – the Read More …
