We put away all of our Christmas decorations today. While unraveling the lights from the tree I realized that we may only have this tree for one more Christmas. Once we are back stateside we are going to buy a real tree every year.
Grace found it rather funny that we were messing with the Christmas lights. We had left our front door open (it goes out to our foyer which is totally enclosed with another door that leads to the stairway and an elevator) and Grace was wondering back and forth. She shut herself outside a couple of times. When she came back in and saw us taking the lights off the tree she put her hand over her mouth and started laughing!
After the inside decorations were packed up she got to help with the outside lights. Her job was to play peek-a-boo with us! We opened up both of our balcony doors and let her run in and out. She had quite a good time!
We put the furniture back where it belongs and made room for all of Grace's new toys. Now she has her playroom back. She ran back and forth across the room throwing a ball and laughing. She has so much more room to play now that the sofa is back where it belongs!
