Christmas Plans (eeek!😁)

I’m only making Christmas plans in my head. No shopping or getting things pulled out yet! I promised Dave I won’t do this til after Halloween…🤣…BUT! Remember how I put the big white tree in the kitchen last year? You can see it here…and the red tree in the living room. Well, I took that…

a little photo shoot with a mug…
