The De-Santa-fication Process Has Begun

"The de-Santa-fication process has begun. "  (Name that movie.)

New Year's Day around here most often is filled with un-decorating and football.  And maybe a little Rose Parade thrown in for good measure.  And of course the pork and sauerkraut that brings good luck all year long.

We've made it through about 95% of the dismantling, and about 50% of the packing away.  With breaks for cleaning, eating, and watching football, I anticipate that it will take both today and tomorrow, off and on, to complete. I hope to be done by dinner time tomorrow night.  Until then, these are some of the views we have around our house.

  2. Good for you. I haven't even started. We were enjoying some down time, watching movies, etc. Tomorrow we hope to be more productive.

    Thanks so much for being a part of Seasonal Sundays. Happy New Year.

  3. OOh! the cookies should help! Over hear, de-santification has not yet begun. We don't take the tree down until the Epiphany, but this year, I think I will begin by taking everything ELSE down, so that only the tree is left. This is the first time I really could not WAIT to take it all down. By the end of the week, though, it will all be gone, and I will be complaining that it looks too bare without the tree. lol!
