However, I've been rather busy moving my wee Christmas tree to its cozy corner in the closet where it will hibernate until next year, and I put my Carnival decorations in place.


My Crêche is still on display, because my mother made the figures for me in her ceramics class, and I wrap them carefully before I put them away, which takes time.

I also shopped for Grandpère's Christmas presents a little late, because we do not usually exchange gifts, but he blindsided me with a gift card this year, so I had return the favor.  My son gave GP winter pajamas with only the pants, but he likes pajamas with tops, so I purchased long sleeved T-shirts in colors that matched the pajama pants, which pleased him very much.  I also bought him a new pair of slippers, because his were wearing out.
