I have never felt guilty for removing Christmas decorations before, but my little man sure made me feel bad. Every ornament and nicknack I took down he was right behind me yelling "Hey! Hey! Hey!" His job all season has been to switch on the strands hanging from the mantle, tree, and entrance way. He took his job very seriously. It was the first thing he did every morning. I would wake up to his little face telling me, "Lights on, eat breakfast."
I didn't have much of a choice. I usually leave all the lights up until the Epiphany, but with my due date a month off I'm needing to take advantage of the nesting urge and get things clean now. I didn't take near as many Christmas photos of these two little one as I wanted either. Before removing all the decorations, last of which were in their bedroom, I took a few photos.
Gracie was given her own camera for Christmas, which she had asked santa for. While I was taking pictures of her she told me, "I want to take pictures too!" She ran off and got her camera. She was telling her brother to smile and trying to pose him lol. She was so bossy that it gave insight to what I must sounds like.
I am lacking in photos of my little man without this dinosaur in them. When I try to get rid of it for some images Max made it bite me. Sooooo he stayed.
I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season. Wishing a safe and happy New Year!
