Christmas Let-Down

Does anyone else have problems with feeling "let down" after Christmas? It just seems to be over so quick! We start getting bombarded with Christmas music, advertising and merchandise in the stores earlier and earlier every year. By the time I'm "in the mood" or feel the "Christmas Spirit" it's over and life is back to the normal routine. I would like to figure out how to maintain what one feels during this time of year at least through the New Year. Maybe that's just "child-like" thinking.'s just me.

We went to my brothers for Christmas on Friday. Now that all the kids are adults, it is increasingly difficult to get everyone at the same place at the same time. We were missing Addison at Thanksgiving and we missed Taylor and Keannon for the Christmas gathering.

I just love my brother's tree. He said the girls decorated it.

Wayne, Addison and Destiny. Taylor had to work so he wasn't here. Addison will be going to Japan after the 1st of the year for a two year stint.

Four generations. The first we had taken since Kashton was born!

The girls love their brother but he wants to be on the MOVE!

Me and the hubs.

Me and my brother!

Remi loves her brother!

Have a good one!

  1. I know what you mean but for years I just keep my decorations up until after the first so it is all still a holiday to me for at least a good 2 weeks and then the time before. It was shorter this year between Thanksgiving and Christmas so I'm not really ready to take it all down. Who knows. It may hit me soon. Ha, ha. Love your family photos! Have a very Happy New Year!
