Christmas - sigh.


We left most our Christmas decorations in the states. We now celebrate Christmas into January...but really after 6 January there was no REASON not to take down all the decorations. It used to be our habit to take it all down 1 Jan. I enjoyed it all up - but I wanted it down before my birthday (later this week).  WHY was I putting this off?

It hit me as we took it down. The end of the Holidays signals the last Christmas in Japan. The homestretch before we move...but it had to come down...so while Michael prepared at the chapel...we took it down and put the house back to normal.


This corner used to be crowded with a "welcome Bear" and Yuuki's chair.....

This corner used to house the elliptical. I realized, while crowded, I much prefer the elliptical to be in the dining room. I can watch over school work while I work out. I have a nice view of the neighbor's yard.  We moved Yuuki's chair.

Yuuki howled. Yuukie laid down and whined. Yuuki went OUTSIDE and STAYED outside. Finally, she came in and laid at the foot of the chair. I told her change is a mark of this family. She finally did climb up into her chair - but gave us accusing glares all evening.  Michael has plans to retire her chair when we move...and get her a normal dog bed....we're not so sure about this plan. LOL

So funny about Yuuki and the chair! She'd better get used to it with a whole new house in store this year!

LOL about Yuuki! My dog was mad yesterday when hubby & kids all left her home...with me. She came in to where I was sitting, laid down in front of me, turned her head and wouldn't look at me. Silly dog....

Sis: looking forward to meeting Yuukie! :):) dogs are so much fun. love all pets actually! You all should come for a vist just now..... All our Christmas deco's are in the dining room. I took pictures of all the nativities... when I get a printer I will print the pictures as labels for the boxes so I will be able to spot which one I want quickly. Also making a copy of each for a notebook and my record. etc. about time to organize. :):) love/prayers - mom t.
