Today I made several batches of Christmas cookies to bring to the last party. A few days ago the Christmas carols would have been playing and the kids would have been so excited. Today, the radio stations were back to regular programming and the kids wanted to play with play-dough instead.
Aaron was home today, which definitely brings a certain amount of holiday spirit, but he was working in the basement. I know it is hard to imagine, but that mess is slowly being organized into a laundry space for me and an office space for him. No Christmas colors down there.
I did find one last Christmas project on my table to work on. It helped a little bit, but not much. Here are the raw materials:
Here is the finished product on the left. On the right is a necklace for Brynn.
Giving that to her felt a little more like Christmas!
I guess there is a reason the "Twelve Days of Christmas" feel out fashion. It's hard to hold on to that "Christmas feeling!" But, that's my project for the next few days.
Then I'll have a new project: take down the Christmas feeling and box it up in the basement for next year.
