Great times: Helping Mom to pack away her decorations

This is probably one of my favorite activities to do after the Christmas holidays are behind us and it is one that I shall forever cherish.

Mom and I do this at the beginning of each year and as close as possible to January 06.  We start off at around 9 am in the morning and Mom takes the lead.  She goes from room to room, meticulously removing and taking down her decorations.  Then I help her to pack them away in their designated boxes and bags.

Mini Christmas trees go into their assigned boxes.  Hollies and Poinsettias go into their various bags and then the angels and other decorations go into boxes and bags.  Then comes the fun part.

I take a stool and under Mom’s directions I climb up and open the various overhead cupboards and then very gingerly and carefully I proceed to pack away her decorations. 

The entire event takes about an hour or so and at the end of it all?  Mom’s decorations have been packed away for another year, waiting to be taken down again at the end of the year.
