OK, I'm ready for Christmas!

I wasn't ready last week.

I am now.
Do I really have to take down the tree?

We made a flying trip to Utah LATE Christmas Eve and back home on Christmas Day.
Loved being with some of the family.
Don't love not being with ALL of the family.
Call me selfish.

They will all be here for New Year's Eve.
I should probably warn the neighbors.

I know what you mean about the one day trip, we have done that too. I too am selfish, I always want the whole family here, together! Have a super great New Year together! :D

We had a certain family member missing this year, so it was awesome!

I was wondering what happened to you, thought maybe you spent Christmas in the ER!!!
Love your gingerbread nurse, did you craft it yourself. . .
Happy New Year don't party to hard,
Luv ya,

Keep the tree up. Haven't you seen people who keep their lights up all year long? If you can make it to July, then you're closer to December, and might as well save yourself some trouble. I'm feeling the same.

I put up all my stuff late this year too and now it's time to take it all down! Next year I hope to be more on the ball, lol!

Good luck with all the family!!!

I've always thought the Christmas Season should be at least two months long. By the time you get in the swing of things, it's over...

Have a great New Years!!

Victoria said...

I am SO with you... I almost didn't look forward to Christmas this year because I was NOT READY. How does that even happen??? Glad you get everyone for New Year's... we had to settle for "mostly everyone." Happy New Year!!!

I am SO ready to take down all the holly and jolly, but we are hosting New Years so I don't want to make an even bigger mess. Jan 1...it's comin' down!

Laura said...

I looked at the title and thought, "Oh good! She's ready for Christmas." Then I looked at the date and laughed.

Hey... Leave your tree up as long as you want. ;)

Momza said...

My tree is up until Jan 2nd...by then, I am ready to get on with the New Year! Hope your gathering is a blast!

Flying Christmas Eve and Christmas Day? You're brave!

Cherie said...

Didn't you love Keelys ornaments! Your nurse is darling...she is talented!
Your Christmas sounds a little crazy!! That rocks that your family will all be there for New Years! We're paddling that same canoe.
Happy New Year!!!
Love ya girly!!!!

Valerie said...

Me too! I can totally relate. I feel like I completely missed Christmas! My tree is still coming down this weekend, though.
Happy New Year!

Connie said...

Love your gingerbread nurse! Funny how Christmas comes and goes whether we're ready or not.

I hope the trip to Utah on Christmas eve was a happy, need to be with family, trip and not stressful!

Enjoy your new years celebration!

I didn't want to take my trees down either. I had them all set on timers so the lights would be on when I got up each morning and I loved coming downstairs to them.

I've done those crazy trips to UT before - a few times!

Hope you have a great time this weekend!

Oh you crack me up! so did you get your shopping done?!

Also. . .I hope you didn't jinx me. . .it has always been a BIG fear that I would end up in scouting. . .I am made for young womens or r.s. NOT scouting!!! AHHHHHHH!!!!! ALMOST scares me as much as potty training!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

What a cute ornament. Just leave it up for awhile. We work so hard at decorating that I hate to pack it all away so soon. I will be waiting at least another week. So glad you got to be with family and how awesome that you will be with everyone tomorrow night. Enjoy!

Lisa Loo said...

You're supposed to take it down??!!

ACK!!

Seriously--I hope you have the best New Years ever--what a treat! I hope to hear about it on the national news.....

lifeinredshoes said...

I can't wait for it all to end and get back to my nice cozy rut!
No plans for New Years Eve.....NONE!
Take down the holiday menagerie and revel in the blank canvas ahead:)
And I fully agree, about the totem pole idea.

Emmy said...

That was a quick trip! Glad you got to be with a lot of your family. We took our Christmas stuff down today.. Now everything looks so empty.

Sherrie said...

I hate seeing the Christmas and Holiday Season come to an end. It came way too fast and is going by even faster. I am always sad when I have to take the tree and decorations down.

I'm glad you had a nice Christmas and hope you really enjoy your New Years celebration.
