Cleaning up Christmas

At our house we put up Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving and take them down on January1 but this year we broke with tradition and went to a late breakfast on the 1st with most of our family and then there were football games for the majority of the family in the afternoon and evening. Phil loves to hear me say “Football is boring.” and has me repeat it often so he can laugh and I can continue to sit in the front room and read all by myself. So decorations came down on Monday, January 3.I often wonder how many decorations I would put up if I didn’t have so much help. We pushed to get finished by 2:00 so we could go to the theater with our gift tickets to see the 3rd Narnia movie, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, in digital 3D. We all liked it.


  1. I still remember how beautiful your home was at Christmastime.

  2. Thank you! A few years as I sat in the middle of the setting-up mess I wondered if it was worth it. When we were finished we decided it definitly was so I wrote on the end of one box "IT IS WORTH IT" to remind me in future years it is indeed worth the effort.
