Instagram Christmas Ornament Party

Posted by John on December 2nd, 2013

It’s that time of the year again around here.  Lisa is digging through our Christmas decor bins and dressing up the house.  While holiday decor isn’t really my thing, I do enjoy laughing at some of our older ornaments as we pull them out of the bins.  It’s a fun tradition. Since we could use […]

Hey hey! This time around I get to share with you my two cents on Christmas shopping for the ladies.
