My Christmas tree plus all the Christmas decorations were taken down the day we got home. I couldn’t wait to get it all back in the garage so I could get my house back in shape. My Christmas cards, though, are all still hanging. It’s time to take them down, but it is one of my favorite things about Christmas. It’s like getting a present in the mail everyday during the month of December. I love running to the mailbox in December, and if Matt ever beats me to it, he knows not to open any Christmas cards. It’s just the best reading all the messages and seeing all the faces of my friends and family, especially those that we don’t see very often. I’m always sad after Christmas when there is not a stack of cards in the mailbox.
