    Question When do you un-decorate?

    Usually I take everything down the day after Christmas so that it will all be put away by the time Lauren's birthday rolls around (the 28th)...that way it's just her birthday and no Christmas thrown into it. However, this year I was soooooo late in getting it all up that it's staying up until the first or second week in January

    Ours will probably be coming down Sunday or New Years day. Poor thing looks naked, but still beautiful, without gifts under it.

    Normally, I would be doing that today -- but dh just loves the holiday decorations and begged me this morning to "please leave them up a little while longer!". What can I do?!! He is a bigger kid than all of the rest of them put together!

    I will probably do it this weekend.

    I am doing that today. I don't have too many decorations, though. Our house is small, so we need the room.

    I don't take down my tree till New Years. Well, really the first Saturday after New Years, that's when I don't have to work & I have all day to do it. Our tree is real with roots & we already dug the hole for it. Just take it out & plant it.

    I was planning on waiting until New Year's Day, but I am going to start today. We have 3 dogs (all Aussies) and I'm surprised we haven't had a disaster before now. One ornament got knocked off the tree on Christmas Day and was chipped. This morning they have run through the house barking at every sound they've heard and the tree has been hit more times than I can count. *sigh* Next year the tree is being put in a different spot for sure!

    I will probably take it down this weekend as the dogs keep running into and knocking the balls off. Will have to put it somewhere else next year
