good morning!

It's the day after Christmas and my heart is full to the brim with good things.  Our Christmas was beyond lovely, relaxed and wonderful and we leave it behind with much anticipation towards the new year. :)  We couldn't have asked for a better day...maybe more time off for Doug but we are also very thankful for his job.

I have so many great and exciting plans for this new year we are approaching...things I can't wait to share with you but first....

Today marks the day of one of my favorite parts of Christmas...packing up all the Christmas decorations and cleaning my house from top to bottom!  It has me wondering...when do you reclaim your house post Christmas?  Will you have your house back by the end of the day or will it look the same come Valentines?

Hope your heart is full and light! :)  
Pin It!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you! I am right there with you planning to clean and reorganize today.

We thought about taking all of our decor down before we came to florida. We didn't. So, we'll go home to it. Hopefully it'll be down by the new year.

I'm hoping to get mine all packed away today or tomorrow...depends on how many family members keep dropping by! I love Christmas, but I'm also ready to get my house back to normal and move on with the new year. :)

In years past, I've taken down decorations the day after Christmas. But, in years past I've always gone way overboard with decorating. This year I was very choosy with what got put up and what went right back to the Christmas bins. I think I'll leave it up another day or two!

I was planning on leaving the decorations up for a while, but I woke up with lots of energy and focus. Thus, the decorations are put up, our attached storage shed has been cleaned out and reorganized, our BC (before Christmas) toys have been reduced, our pantry has been cleaned out and organized and the top of our refrigerator has been cleaned off (who knew it could be so gross up there?!). Whew! Can't wait for tomorrow and MORE cleaning. Dare I say it's fun? :)

I have so many ideas in my head I can't decide what to start first. So, I'm going to put the decoration away today. My husband would like them all up till after New Years (that is because he isn't the one that puts them away) I leave the tree up with just white lights on it for him.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

It's a New Years Day clean up thing for us. We continue to sing Christmas songs around the tree before bedtime after christmas. I love it. It's sad to see it all go, but SO nice to have all of the new toys finially in their places and all of the pine needles and wrapping paper put away. Happy New Year to you and yours! :)
