Good morning. How was your Christmas? We had lots of fun here. Two days of presents. For the first time we had my Mother, her boyfriend, Mandy and my lil' Grandson Leo for a Christmas Eve lunch. I kept it VERY simple. Homemade turkey sandwiches, macaroni salad and chips. Nothing fancy but perfect non the less. Here's Leo in his Santa hat ... SO cute.
Christmas Day was spent home opening stockings and a few gifts between us. Then we watched movies the rest of the day eating popcorn and drinking cocoa and coffee : )
Here's my question for you ... when do YOU take down your decorations? Are you like me and find yourself wanting a clean space? I find myself not wanting any clutter. EVERYTHING has to go. That's usually the feeling I have after Christmas. Christmas night I actually turned to The Hubby and said, "I'm wanting to take the tree down". Since we're Buddhist we don't celebrate the Epiphany like others do. We celebrate the giving of love and peace for the holiday. So, I'm thinking everything might be put away before New Years this year. This leaves me with the idea of decorating AFTER Christmas.
Since we live in Florida the idea of a white Christmas is kinda lost. I'm thinking that this year I may lean more towards the nature of Florida. Maybe instead of "snow" I'll go with sand. Simple meets Nature might be the look of winter here.
Here's another question for ya ... when would you take the cocoa off a cocoa bar? I've added my new Keurig Mini to the cocoa bar and since it's not cold here for very long, I'm thinking I can take the cocoa, marshmallows and candy cane sticks off. What do you think?
I'm off to do a few returns. Hoping that the crowds aren't too crazy.
Did you have many returns?
Hope you had a wonderful Holiday ~
