I guess by this time of year, despite loving Christmas as I truly do, I think it's way past time to put the decor to rest. That way, come November, it is sooooooo special to bring it out again- to go get the fresh tree, or haul out your artificial and deck the halls.

Now that the ground is thawed I can get the trees out of the ground and the lights and garland off the house. Hmmm, Easter lights maybe?

I passed a house this weekend that still had Christmas wreaths up on several windows and their front door. Another house a couple blocks from us still has their icicle lights up and on.

I got all the snowman stuff put away a couple of weeks ago but I keep forgetting to take off the "Let It Snow" door mat off the front porch! I'm off work tomorrow, so maybe I'll remember...

I just took down my icicle lights from the garage yesterday afternoon. But I have a ceramic Santa, Frosty & Reindeer plaque over my computer that I leave up all year.

I still have 3 Santas hanging around, unfortunately Ophelia the cat decided she liked his beard and ripped it off of one of the Santas.
