Although traditionally I am completely over the Christmas decor by Christmas evening, I think the aforementioned stomach bug that rampaged through the house has added to the urgency. At this point I would like to redecorate in the soothing colors of Lysol. Our tree still looks good, so it is not as totally urgent right now, but all these little things from around the house… Goodbye! Looking forward to seeing you next year!

I’m wanting flowers right now, too… it’s refreshing to look out back and see the lilies in their green profuseness (they don’t understand Nevada winters). But I’m not ready to get rid of Christmas decorations quite yet. 🙂
Rach, I’m completely feeling that too! And spring-cleaning fever has struck as well! This house is purge-city 🙂 Glad to hear you are in the lysol portion of your sickness 🙂
Mmmm! Daffodils! Yes please. I have been slowly de-Christmas-ing the house this week, but tonight is the big hurrah….my husband is being lovely and taking down the needle-shedding tree. 🙂
Oh, and then he will vacuum said shed needles… *sigh*… I love him. 🙂
My husband tucked a copy of your new book into my stocking on Christmas morning. After putting my two littles down for a long winter nap that afternoon, I commenced reading. I finished reading it this morning at 6:15, seeing as I had been awake sine 5am with this darn third trimester pregnancy insomnia. A fun fact about your book: My 16-month old was completely enthralled with the photo of the “baby” on the front. Fearing the safety of the pages, my husband placed the book just out of reach on the top of our entertainment center. This beloved toddler will now bring the book to me any time he finds it on my bedside table, and point to where my husband had placed it previously with a “here?”. The poor kid can’t rest until I put the book where it obvioulsy belongs :).
Thank you for sharing your wisdom. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and devoured it in 3 days!
Absolutely purging over here too! Sorting toys – finding ways to keep all the new ones with parts on the top shelf of the closet to be used one at a time!
Too funny! We had dinner guests last night, and they brought a huge bunch of pink and white tulips. I was so delighted to see something blooming that was NOT poinsettia!!
I respectfully submit that Christmas continues until Epiphany (January 6). So, while there is cleaning going on here today, we are gearing up for continued holiday festivity.
We leave things up here a little longer (though we may start out later)! New Year and Christmas decos go together in Scotland but after New Year out come pots of ‘tete a tete’ daffodils sprinkled through the house. I love each season.
I agree, I’m ready to pack up the Christmas things!
My toddler loves the messy baby face picture on the front cover also!
