Never Ending Traditions

Last week I finally put all of the Christmas decorations away. I had the boys help me round everything up and get it in the boxes. I searched high and low. I was bound and determined to not continue one tradition I hate. That is Forgetting To Put One Thing Away. It seems every year I find something I forgot even after scouring everywhere and double checking the whole house. I even checked the tree this year and it looked ornament free!

I was beginning the think I had done it this year! I was pretty happy. Until from across the room I spied it.


It was something that didn't belong this time of year. It was red and green. I had cleaned the top of the shelf off, I had taken down the stuffed Grinch that was sitting next to this item. But somehow


I had missed the Merry Christmas pillow. It seems some traditions can't be broken no matter how hard I try.

You are way ahead of us. We finally took the Christmas tree down on Saturday, the nativity scene (we just put 1 up) today, and maybe tomorrow we will get to the Santas and stockings. Like I said, maybe...

I have the same problem each year. I end up making a spot in the laundry room each year to put all the Christmas stuff found and bought during the year.
