Happy Epiphany!

January 6 marks the end of the Christmas season, the day the Three Wise Men reached Bethlehem with their gifts for the Newborn King. It also means that it's time to take down our Christmas tree and put away all the Christmas decorations. I think I'm going to kind of miss them! We finally put names on our stockings so that Santa will know where to put the gifts next year.

(If you missed the story, Desert Boy was expecting presents in his stocking Christmas morning and asked me in a very sad voice why his stocking was empty. I told him the presents were under the tree, but that wasn't good enough, he really thought Santa would put something in the stocking! I pointed out that our stockings didn't have names on, so he helped me remedy that.)

Of course we still have plenty of snow outside to remind us of the white Christmas we had. That may take a lot longer to disappear than the Christmas decorations. Sigh. January can be a tough month to get through. But we have Emma's first birthday party to look forward to! And plenty of Knock Knock jokes from Desert Boy. In fact, we need some new ones--he tells the same ones over and over so many times that we start to roll our eyes. Do you know any good Knock Knock jokes?

The classic knock knock joke that is over used in our house is the "Orange you glad I didn't say banana?" joke. Every one of the kids have gone through a knock knock phase. It's better than my son's current fart obsession!

We don't celebrate three kings day in a religious way but when my Catholic neighbor mentioned how disappointed she gets when people put their decorations away before then, I willingly took up the tradition. Now I think of her every year even though we're no longer neighbors.

January is a difficult month for me too.

We haven't taken our decorations down yet... I blame the weather. Who wants to trek up and down stairs that have a 6-inch layer of ice while carrying boxes?
