  47. Jacquelin, oh your home is beautiful. How do you do all you do with five beautiful daughters and a hubby? and so nice to see the ornaments I sent you, they look great on your tree, glad you are enjoying them. I have the cute little doggies on my mantle, they look great up there and aren't hidden in the tree! Woof!
    I hope you don't mind but I do a Pink Saturday post everyweek and our task is to introduce a blogger new to us, so I put a link to your blog, I hope you don't mind and I hope some lovely ladies stop by to say hi to you!
    God Bless and have a magical Christmas..and all of God's many blessings upon you.
    hugs:)) Barb
