Time to Say Goodbye

It's alright.
It's not sad.  
It's a good thing.

It's time to say goodbye to the Christmas decorations.
Goodbye Birdies

Goodbye Doggies

Goodbye Horsies

We'll see ya'll in about eleven months.

I must report one Christmas decor casualty.
A Santa hat placed atop a lamp shade is no longer a Christmas decoration.

We found it on the floor, a little tattered.

Bella had claimed it as her own.

It was promoted to Christmas dog toy.

Goodbye 2011
Hello 2012


  1. Goodbye to decorations until next year. I'm putting mine away today. Glad we didn't have any casualties like your Santa hat. Bella is really cute with her new toy.

    Happy New Year to you all!

  2. Seems like yesterday was the day for a lot of folks to pack up Christmast 2011.

    At first I thought the hat had charred.. but dog toy is so much more fun!

  3. Taking down the tree is so bittersweet but I love the change it brings. Happy New Year!

  4. We lost two baubles trying to get all the lights back on after half of them went off AFTER I had fully decorated the tree. We had to settle for half a lighted tree this year :-)

  5. Don't do that to me again! My heart was all clenched up. I didn't want to scroll down. I was so relieved to read your first few lines! Pheww!
    Lucky Bella! Tucker didn't get a hat - we had a few around, but he didn't figure out how to get them! Monty destroyed a few in his day!
    Take care. My decorations get packed up tonight or tomorrow :-(

  6. Bella is beautiful Happy New Year!!

  7. You had me wondering...what a pretty coat Bella has!
