I had the kids help take the ornaments off the tree. After all they helped put them on. They each have their own box of ornaments. Each of the ornaments then have a box (Most are Hallmark) So it's easy for them to put them away. I think this will be added to the "traditions". It made things a bit easier for me. As I do every year I cut some ornaments out. I usually end up buying ones on clearence...so the ornaments that have seen better days get cut. The one thing I couldn't bare to take down was my Willow Tree Nativity...I'm going to leave it up for awhile.
Today I am going to try my new popcorn popper and try a caramel corn recipe. Our Vikings are on this afternoon. Hubby is DREAMING!
On a sad note, the in-laws are on their way to Florida. Their winter home. They left yesterday morning and won't be back until sometime in April. This gets to be LONG for us and the kids seeing how they are our #1 babysitters!
