I just thought I would share a secret. Today, February 26th... I took down our Christmas decorations.
These photos show what our living room looked like until this afternoon. It might have been laziness that kept me from taking them down, but I didn't get to decorate for Christmas with our decorations last year, so I guess I was enjoying them too much as well.
This is the Nativity that Aaron bought for me for our first Christmas together. I love it.
Some of Aaron's family cut this tree for us. I am grateful to them. It held up pretty nicely. The ornaments are extras from the ones we used on the tree for Aaron for the festival of trees. Aaron's mom gave these to us to use on our tree. It was beautiful.

Has anyone else ever left their Christmas decorations out for this long?
