Goodbye Christmas 2009

We will start to pack up the remnants of Christmas tomorrow. Everything will be wrapped up and put back into their storage boxes, all but the garland hanging from the fireplace. Each year we leave up the sparkly lights for a few extra weeks, they seem to help liven up the house a little during the cold winter days. This year I might even leave them up longer. They have to be down by February when all the Valentine's Day decorations come out though....but we are getting ahead of ourselves now.

I love our tree. Better yet, I love the ornaments that are hanging from our tree. Most of them have a story behind them, or were made/given by someone we love.

These are my favorites.
