Clean up, Clean Up/Everybody do your part!
There is a genetic quirk in my system to use the week between Christmas and New Year’s to clean up, throw out and….rearrange furniture. The cleaning up and throwing away random receipts from a 2002 McDonald’s trip is probably a fairly common trait…but the moving of furniture? Totally something inherited from my father. It makes my soul take a sigh of relief.
So – today I’m starting to clean up the Christmas junk and thought I’d share a photo of my favorite decoration we have. It’s a set of Nativity nesting dolls painted by my very artistic mother-in-law….aren’t they adorable?
And our new decoration this year was my 10yo’s Lego Advent Calendar (she got it for her birthday in November and patiently waited for December!). Very cool and I highly recommend it:
The little scene included ice skaters, hot cocoa stand, city workers and Santa.
