Today I took our tree down and all the other decorations. They have been carefully stuffed away in boxes and bins for another 11 months or so. I'm really torn as to whether am relieved to finally have everything boxed back up (it is January 9th after all) or so sad that the Christmas season is officially over. I really love Christmas because of the magic that surrounds it. I love the spirit of giving that is evident to me everywhere. I miss that my girls put so much thought into what treat they leave Santa and truly try to be better behaved around this time of year. Regan is seven now. The "magic" won't be here for much longer and I really want to just pause everything for a little while... Speaking of magic, check out this awesome picture my super-cool bro-in-law took of us on Christmas Eve...I love Christmas!
