Monday night "the other Kelly" (what my children call our friend who was one of Jimmy's college roommates--not to confuse him with "Uncle Kelly"--Lynn's husband) helped me decorate our house for Christmas. Well, actually he does all the decorating, I just help unload the boxes and watch him work his magic. This is the 11th year that Kelly has done this for me. He makes our house look so pretty and festive!
