OMG I think I have met my match in holiday decorations...I crown thee queen of Easter. I love wine tastings and I'm saving that ham recipe, thanks, ours just went into the oven with the glaze on (sad, I know). Your family is beautiful and you look downright skinny!!!

LOVE the decorations! Beautiful. But the most gorgeous thing of all...your collarbones! Wow.

My ham was so boring, I'm doing yours next year!

Lovely pics.
