taking christmas down
Taking Christmas down this year looks different than usual.
Since our kids have been born we have given them a new ornament each year. This year when the tree comes down - our daughter and son will take their ornaments and will pack them separately. Packing them separately so they can use them next year or the year after in their own apartment or home...
There is a happiness that comes from knowing there is not a whole lot we would do differently in raising our kids, we like who they have become a lot!
But there is sadness connected to any kind of change - so watching our Christmas come down this year will not be quite so fun.
I have decided to leave it up for as long as possible!
