I am really not there yet. In the Christmas spirit.
In fact, I usually don’t arrive until all is over- the shopping, making and wrapping-

There are small little signs of Christmas throughout the house- it is starting
to look right ready for the celebrating to begin.

Have a wonderful Christmas and don’t forget to catch the spirit!
