As much as I hate it, it is time to take down the tree. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. It makes me sad to see it pass.
Each year we pick out our tree the day after Thanksgiving. Have I ever mentioned that I am married to Clark Griswold?
"The bigger, the better!" I'm pretty sure that is my hubby's motto. Over the past few years, I have been able to talk him into a skinny (well, skinnier) tree. However, this year's tree still stands at a little over 10 feet. Clark.
As in years past, we packed her full of ornaments (for some reason, I think of her as a girl).
The children all have their own (small) trees in their rooms, but I love having all of the ornaments they have made on the big tree.
We will keep a few decorations out through February. Like these snowmen (minus the red ornaments).
These were on one of the fireplaces at my wedding reception.
They are so sweet. Hopefully the will bring a little snow our way!
Even though I am sad to see Christmas go, I am looking forward to a few less pine needles in this house!
I hope you had the merriest Christmas of all!
