It's after the last day of Christmas that I start to take down all of the Christmas decorations... by myself. Have you noticed that it's a family activity to decorate the home for Christmas, however, it's mom's job to take it all down and somehow get it all to fit again in all of the small boxes. How did that tradition evolve? I know,... it's counted as a physical exercise which will remove all of the excess weight gained over the holiday! After today....no more cookies!!!!!!
