Undeck the Halls!

Yesterday some friends brought us dinner and helped us put away our Christmas decorations.

WHAT??????

I know! We're still 10 days out from the holiday but our life took an unexpected turn 2 weeks ago when Joshua's dad died suddenly. He'll fill you in later but we are now heading to Texas for a while and we really didn't want to come home in February to a trunk sticking up in the window with a pile of needles below it.

Thankfully the de-seasoning of our house took just under 30 minutes and I'm immeasurably thankful for Greg and Memry who helped make that possible. The speed in which it was accomplished made it impossible to be sad that we were having to do it.

On a more comical note I AM curious what our neighbors think about our Christmas tree sitting on the brush pile on the street. On January 1 that would be no big deal but a Christmas tree on the curb by December 15 is a bit curious.

More than likely they won't bat an eyelid because they have come to expect things just a little outside of normal from the Fykes.
