Today, we put away all things that are Christmas in the house. It was definitely time, maybe even over time. The tree came down on Tuesday, 12/30, but all the other decorations stayed up. We quit lighting the outside lights Jan 1st and are taking down the Christmas lights right now.
It is just kind of sad to put it all away. Something magical happens when the boxes get opened, the stockings get hung, the Santa's come out and the house glitters and shines! Memories of Christmas' past. Celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Special holiday events, parties, baking, cooking, friends, family, Christmas Carols, sending REAL Christmas cards via snail mail!! Poinsettias, presents, and lots of holiday cheer!!
As the last box gets put away, we will fondly remember this Christmas season. All the joy, love and hope for a wonderful 2009!!

The love you take
is equal to the love you make."
