Remnants of Christmas

This is what I had to deal with yesterday. I had taken all the Christmas decorations down, but just couldn't face getting them all put away. So after a couple days of them just sitting in the back yard, yesterday was the day to deal with it. All these deer, angels, etc plus 20+ boxes finally made their way back up into the attic for another 10 months. I love it when it is all decorated, I love it when it is all put away. I especially love to see the children enjoy the lights, especially Tanek. But.....each year it gets a little harder and a little less fun. So, I am not sure how many more years I will do this, but probably as long as Tanek gets excited about it I will.

I know it must be hard to store and put away. We enjoyed it many, many times this year on our way shopping. :)

Wow! I never thought about that part of it! I just enjoyed looking at all the pretty lights. Where did you have the See Rock something bird house? I used to see those signs all the time when I was a kid. There were always painted on the roofs of buildings. Good memories! Happy New Year.

The bird house just sits out back on that bench. My neighbor gave it to me. Happy New Year to you too. I am glad it is all behind and put away.
