I'm having a hard time taking the Christmas tree down this year, which is unusual for me because I've been known to take the tree down and pack everything up as early as Christmas night--ready to be done with the holidays.
But this year the tree was decorated by the kids; adorned with paper chains. I love sitting in my chair next to it at night after everyone else has gone to bed; enjoying it's special beauty and warmth.
It's dropping needles like crazy and the ornaments are finding their way all over the house, but it seems like there will be such a Big Hole after we take it down.
So we're considering hanging Valentines on it...and then maybe Easter eggs...
