You know, I'm sure you do it too. I must confess, I didn't get very many decorations out and up this year. Shame on me. We have a beautiful 11 foot tall tree for our living room, but I only put up the 7 foot fiber optic one this year. It is a lot easier to deal with. I didn't put any of my other 6 trees up. I didn't put any outside lights out. I didn't bring down my Santa collection from storage. It's not that I wasn't in the Christmas spirit, I was, truly. I just kept procrastinatin' and before I knew it, it was Monday and everything needed to be done in two days!
On Christmas Eve, one of my sisters took me aside and asked if everything was okay and was I feeling alright? "Yes, I was just lazy this year."
The last few years I have done so much to get ready, that Christmas is here and gone and I feel like I didn't get to enjoy or savour it. So this year I did less decoratin' and more enjoyin'.
We had lots of fun and I hope you did too.
My daughter and granddaughter spent Christmas Eve night, as they usually do, and we opened our gifts to each other on Christmas mornin'. Our favorite gift that granddaughter received and which was enjoyed by all, were a pair of Moon shoes. We laughed and laughed at her jumpin' around all over the place.
I want to show you some of the photo's of her in action. Now remember when lookin' at these photo's that she is jumpin' and her feet in Moon shoes are completely off the floor.
My dad use to say after all the presents were opened and the floor was trashed with all the wrappin' paper and kids were all scattered about enjoyin' their gifts, that 'It's all over but the cryin'. Watchin' my granddaughter jump around in her Moon shoes is makin' me laugh so hard that I'm cryin'. Maybe that's what he meant.
Hope this made you smile a little.
