My Mann brought it to my attention that every year we leave something out from the Christmas decorations.
I don't think it really is every year. But I will admit that it has been every year for the past at least five years.
The reason he had said that was because I had just announced, "Look what I found!"
I found a lone snowflake (one of the new decorations the kidlets got and put this year) that had fallen and separated from the others when it came time to collect them a put them away.
While this decoration doesn't scream Christmas like some of our other strays.
A small snow globe
A whole nativity (how we missed that sitting by the kitchen window is beyond me. It was almost time for
Christmas again when there was a little accident and the staff of one of the shepherds broke.
A small wooden Father Christmas to name a few.
It is reassuring in a odd sort of way.
Some things never change. We will always have foibles and we can laugh at them.
We have something to look forward to: getting that particular forgotten decoration back in the attic where it belongs...next year.
Remembrances of a time with family, friends, and lots of food.
How about you? Have you unknowingly left a Christmas decoration out when everything else was put away? What did you do? Leave it out or put it away?
