Got all the inside stuff taken down this morning - just need to haul it back up into the attic. I may leave the outside stuff out for a couple more days. I just don't want to be out there in the cold and wind.
Usually my stuff stays up until Epiphany but my husband is leaving today because we just found out his brother may not live past this week. He is 46 years old and is dying from complications of end stage liver disease. I needed something to preoccupy me.
We have a new years eve party so it stays up for that and I plan on hosting a post holiday party after that so it will be staying up until at least jan. 12th. We spend so much time putting it all up we love enjoying it.
We finished with Christmas presents and dinner, mine was gone on Christmas day by 6 pm. I was having a heard time keeping my kitty out of it! I hung a bell on it so I could hear when she was playing. I love that cat to pieces, but she was driving me nuts with the tree!
