'Tis the season...

Isn't it fun to get all the Christmas decorations out?  I love it...as do most, I think.  J got all the boxes down and put up the Christmas lights on the house, which look GREAT!  I looked at all the boxes in the garage, there really aren't THAT many...maybe 4, and started thinking about where certain things will go.  Most of the things I have are hand-me-downs...GREAT ones, all of which I am thankful to have.  Christmas decorations are unnecessary and overpriced, but also are AWESOME!  So I'm glad that some of my family members donate to the cause.  :)  I have things in those boxes that I remember from my grandmother's and great-grandmother's houses during Christmas.  As I was trying to remember what all I had stashed away, and trying to place all those items around our house in my mind, I started opening a box.  I didn't remember this particular box from last year, but it did say, "CHRISTMAS" in red letters all over it.  I ripped the tape off to find and Wal-Mart sack FULL of NEW Christmas decorations!  I remember now!  I hit the after-Christmas sales last year and had lots of new things!  Mostly evergreen and red berry garlands, but still, new things!  It was exciting!
