Taking Down Christmas

Christmas is all down. I was sad taking down all our decorations, especially because when I put them up I was thinking of all the excitement we’d have with my parents here. But {sigh} life has other plans for us.
However, I never reviewed our Christmas festivity on my blog, so I thought I’d do that now. I didn’t take many pictures, mostly on purpose. I hate doing Christmas scrapbook pages, but I did take a few of the tree, so hopefully I can just journal about our fun day on that.
Spencer had a delightful Christmas. He ripped into presents with abandon and delighted in everything he received. Being 2 or 3 is probably the best Christmas age ever. They’re so believing and excited. Oh, if we could just bottle-up that kind of excitement, I think I would take a little sniff of it each day. Big presents included the Shake and Go raceway (which both boys love), new legos and puzzles. Oh, and of course a giant and noisy truck from my parents (shocking but true).
Conner is verging into the sphere of “how do we know there’s a Santa” however my response is, “if you don’t believe, he doesn’t come for you.” So, he’s a believer. He got a digital camera (I’m hoping to post a few of his photos — there are 100’s each day — on the blog), more legos, and some star wars transformers.
Drew got a new MP3 player, this one with a lifetime warranty so when he drops it, he can rest assured that all will be well. :)
Hilary got an electric blanket and some new kitchen-ware. After almost 10 years of marriage, we are in desperate need.
We all got a lovely new tiny digital camera from my parents. I am very excited not to have to haul the rebel to school and other functions. The Elph now resides in the diaper bag. I’m so happy to say.
The music I put up today will stay for January. It’s from Sesame Street, and I love the lyrics. It is most definitely one of my favorite christmas songs ever. Think of this Christmas day, when Christmas is far away….

    Wanna come take mine down now? I’m dreading it. First I have to put all the new Christmas goodies away…hopefully both tasks will get done tomorrow.

    I love reading all your blog entries – you are so fun! We are a little delayed on taking down Christmas here but I have finally finished it all!
    p.s. keep us posted on the Elph – it sounds so cool and I’d love to hear your reviews on it.
