Now that Christmas is over, the time will soon come to stow away all the holiday decorations. While I usually wait until after New Year’s Day, there are a few new storage solutions that I have been thinking of using when the time comes.

With apologies to Clement Moore, I thought my blog post today might be an opportunity to bring a smile to your face. Enjoy!

After a Thanksgiving that was totally family-focused, we thought it best that we pick one day this week that is all about family. Today is the day. We are not spinning out of control or anything like that, we just seem to be moving in many directions instead of one. With Tucker out of school, we can spend the whole day together for the first time in weeks.

You've no doubt noticed all the holiday movies that are filling the TV airwaves this month. It seems everyone has a favorite from Jimmy Stewart in "It's a Wonderful Life" to the animated "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". The 20-30 crowd that grew up with the Home Alone series just can't seem to get enough of Kevin McAllister, Harry and Marv.

Someone very near and dear to us has a birthday today. It always seems, thought, that birthdays in December get rolled into holiday celebrations. The day gets lost in the month and the birthday girl or boy never quite gets the feeling that it is their special day.

There's a saying that goes something like 'you don't miss something until it's gone'. I felt that way this morning because I actually miss being in school. There was always something to look forward to in school, a new skill to learn, a factoid to remember. I miss that sense of exploration and wonder.

Our good friends spend December and most of the winter in the mountains of Colorado. Their kids, who are now grown with families of their own, travel there for Christmas with their own kids and they have a household that is bursting with activity for weeks this time of year.
