four lovely women...

My four favorite women live around the country and every Monday they send me a snapshot from their little corner of this wonderful world. This is what's going on with them...


Seattle - my daughter (in Phoenix for Christmas break)
"Polishing silver for my Mom on what is supposed to be my break"


Sedona - my mother.
"I wish you could all see the lights on this house"


Aliso Viejo - my friend.
"Santa parade"


St. Augustine - my cousin.
"Christmas lights in old town St. Augustine"


Let's all have a great week!

The first pic cracked me up as yesterday Mom and I polished my silver together! It's not so bad when you have company. I wonder where that Santa Parade was in Aliso Viejo, that is not far from us. Wishing you a lovely week with your daughter home!!

Fun Christmas pics!
That is only about one third of the decs and lights at the 'over the top house', but it really is fun to see.
Granddaughter, I suggest gloves for the rest of the work on your mom's list!
