Almost there....Procrastinators Unite!

Our tree is finally at rest in its box awaiting next year. Wow....we celebrated Christmas till almost March...where are the presents????? I'm so thankful for a partner in this life that isn't all caught up with time restraints and appearances but more about life and all its unexpected turns and events! Thanks Dan! Now if I could just find those silly Christmas elves to come and pack up all these ornaments! Actually I find the packing and unpacking of the ornaments the best part of the holiday for me....so many memories! I can remember each ornaments beginning and the story behind it. I have one from when I was a kid that is faded and scratched but I hold onto the memory of when it was new and began its journey on our Christmas trees. I have a funny looking traditional Santa that Dan and I purchased after buying our first Christmas tree....the fragile pieces the kids made while in school or just for fun! I think we all hold onto tree ornaments for this reason, to stay in touch with the warmth of Christmas memories! Time may march on but a beloved Christmas ornament still holds onto its beginning and the story around it! Okay time to start packing and day-dreaming!

I finally got the rest of mine done.
Now I am making eggs and even did a simple bunny yesterday, forgot how much I love to create dolls.

I'm the same with my ornaments. I can tell you where each one came from, and treasure all the memories they trigger. Each one is loveingly packed away, awaiting the next Christmas season joys.:-)
Wonderful post.

Oh thank goodness I'm not the only one! I love the unpacking of the Christmas ornaments, as you said so many memories and so many smiles and tears, but the packing up is an entirely different kettle of fish! I actually got mine down before the end of January this year which was some kind of record but have been known to be celebrating Christmas in March as well :O) Deb

There was a pile on my kitchen counter much like yours until last weekend! I hold on to ornaments a lot of folks would throw out probably, and load the tree down with 'em! Good to read about other "nostolgics"! LOL~! ~*~Lisa
