  4. I so miss my granddaughters being close by to help with all things Christmas, but I am making some headway even without them. It’s just not as much fun, and I’m sure you can relate to that.

    I know you and your cutie are enjoying the process of creating more beauty throughout your home. It’s always better doing it with someone you love who shares your creative genes.

  9. Everything looks so pretty. Can hardly wiat to see finish results. I am also most done, just have to finish my Christmas Village.
    I wasn’t going to do much this year, but I thought since I am getting older, I should because I may not be able to next year LOL
    Your granddaughter is getting so grown up – she is a cutie.
    Happy decorating.
