"Time moves on, but love can remain forever."

Another Christmas has come and gone. The tree came down Christmas night after everyone had left. The ornaments and decorations are all tucked away safely in their tissue and put snugly into their boxes. I did manage to get rid of some Christmas decorations that I have not put out in quite a few years.
It was so nice to see and visit with my Aunt Kimmy. My sister Jessica and her family also stayed with us a few days. We managed to go to the movies, get some visiting in without all of the chaotic business that comes along with Christmas festivities. However, I don't feel like I got enough one on one time with everyone. I guess that is what happens when it is held at your own house...
I am finding myself with a little "Post Christmas Blues." It went by so fast. I didn't get to see anyone open up their presents. It seems like the older I get, the year goes by faster too. I do like to savor moments, just wanting them to last.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!


  1. Yes, now is the time for some reflection. I took everything down, packed it away, and put out a totally new theme. Pastor Dad came in and looked around like a little boy, very sad, and said "Where's Christmas?" It's put away till next year...So today he had on his Merry Christmas button, and said...It's not over yet!!

  2. Christmas went by as fast as it came this year. it sounds like you did have a good time with your family even if it was short.
    I am glad that you did. as you told me time with family is precious.
    and so are you my dear!

    love ya

  3. Through this bloggie world I learned that even christmas tradtions are different all over the world. You start decorating about two weeks before we do here in holland, but than again we leave the tree and decorationsup till after new year and most people even till the 6th of january. I'm glad to be able to enjoy christmas a bit longer, although i can't wait to redecorate my home in winter style :)

    Wish you a wonderful and happy New Year('s Eve)
