I love all things Christmas, but it's so refreshing putting all the decorations away.
Suddenly our house feels so fresh and airy.

Naturally we had all the usuals out again,
with the addition of a few new guys purchased at 75% off last January.
(don't you just love those after christmas sales? I never buy anything holiday at full price!)
Admittedly our wee chubby tree of last year was terribly missed,
but the endless clean up of pine needles was not.
It's still up in the air which way we'll be going next year.

So there you go mom, our christmas decor of 2010.
(better late than never, right?)
