The Clean Up

We were sort of expecting to wake up today to find ourselves in the middle of a snowstorm.  It would have been an excuse to stay inside all day cleaning up the house from the happy mess that was left behind after Santa had come and gone.  However, instead of the winter wonderland we were expecting it just rained but we still gave ourselves the opportunity to be "stuck in" and spend the day at home.  Despite the cleanup that still happened, it was really nice to just be home for a change with  no reason to go anywhere.  We got the greatest gift this morning though when Colin was the first one up to come walking in our room at 8am!  I couldn't even tell you the last time we slept in that late when all 4 of us were home.  What a great surprise!

While taking down the Christmas decorations is never fun, it does feel nice to have a really clean and organized house again!

Wishing you and your family all the best in the new year Kelli :)

We haven't taken our tree down yet, but you're inspiring me to get it done today! (-: Love that feeling of getting the house back to normal too!

I am going to wait a couple more days to get our tree down. I dread all that work! We have gotten all the new toys put away...that was a big job in & of itself!
