Betty, Laurie and Erin were busy making this gorgeous card
so we could all decorate the pages of this calendar
and then Laurie and Erin announced they had succumbed to learning a new craft, and brought out all the supplies to make these pretty Christmas Snowflakes.
This is not Betty's table setting for our Dinner and Crafting night.
Friday my Mother treated us to a trip to Longwood Gardens as an early Christmas present. It was just beautiful. The photo above was taken inside the Conservatory. Outside there were hundreds of decorated trees with half a million lights. (I did not personally count them, but that's what the literature said.)
It was my first trip there and I will definitely be going back.
