Well, it's official, the holidays are done at our house. I have taken down all of the decorations, packed it all away and cleaned it all up. This is always a sad time for me. I love the holidays. I love the excitement, anticipation, preparing and giving that goes into it all. I love the feeling of the house when you walk in from a long day and see a sparkly tree and gifts and goodies all about. I love the feeling that the season gives. I love how people are different during the Christmas season. People seem to be happy and have an air of excitement about them. People are friendlier and tend to laugh more. I don't understand why we can't keep that feeling year round. Why we can't keep that spirit in our hearts and carry it everyday. Maybe we do and it just bubbles to the surface during the Christmas season. Or maybe it's just something special that happens only at Christmas. Maybe if we all tried really hard and made a true effort to keep that spirit we could hang on to a little bit of it throughout the whole year. What do you think, want to give it a shot? I will if you will.
Here are a few pictures of some of our holiday fun. Enjoy.
