I am proud to announce that as of Friday, I have now packed away the remaining bits of Christmas.
Well... with the exception of the little fake tree on the upstairs landing covered in kids' ornaments. Perhaps later this week for that task...
Part of the joy of getting the decor all put away was the subsequent cleaning and organizing that led me to the stash of Christmas gifts that I had ignored during the weeks of my sickness. And there, at the top of the stack, my very favorite.
And inside, "happy holoDay's! MAma! I have a Present for you. close the carD anD open the present it's a nice present."
