End of the Holiday Season

I am both relieved and mournful that the holiday season has come to a close. Grateful that things have slowed down; sad that the excitement of the season is past. 

Oh, my greatest thing to be thankful for? Christmas songs are not playing on every single music device in our home anymore. I'm not going to repeat what I said when I discovered that all of my radio presets had been changed to Christmas music stations. It's not fit for a family-friendly blog. 

But I do loathe taking down our holiday cards. There were so many wonderful ones this year!

 I adore getting cards. Never do I look forward to the mail more than during the weeks of December.
Oh well. I suppose there is always next year to look forward to. 

Randomly, can you tell what is happening here? We're going to have a banged head in 3...2...1.  Ouch!!


  1. Okay - You have inspired me. I am going to try and send out a Christmas card next year. I really love getting other family's cards and it is more than time that we reciprocate. Maybe if we start the planning process now we can come up with something creative and actually get them out the door!

  2. Ha, no way am I buying that! You two are so insanely creative that you'll come up with something fabulous in no time flat. Also, for what it's worth, my mom has started sending out New Year's cards...She finds that she has a lot more time after the whole Christmas hulabalu has died down. It's kind of a nice post-christmas mailbox bonus. :)
