Christmas Decorations

Just got off the phone with my wife who is headed to work. She is a cosmetology instructor and as such has to work on Saturdays. Anyway, she was talking about our Christmas decorations or to be more precise, our lack of them. It seems that as we get older, we don’t decorate as much as we used to. If it’s just me and her here at the house, we tend to just do what we do. She plays puzzles or here lately some new game on her iPhone and i usually am on the computer. Just two people being normal in our own way.

But let the grand-kids come down, and then it’s a different story. Like a couple of weeks ago. They were here and in a matter of a couple of hours the tree was up, the Christmas Village was started and the Lionel Christmas Train was making it’s rounds. Much to the amazement of the grand-kids. And to me. I was surprised that it still ran.

Today, I am going to try to finish the village as best as I can. It’s a temporary setup that we are trying and I can’t be sure how it’s going to work, but we’ll give it a try. Who knows, may even have some photos here later if all goes well.

How about you? Do you decorate less now that you are older?
