Taking down Christmas


I know we promised to talk about Donna’s Christmas scarf today, but it’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind.

The National Western Stock Show has been a Denver tradition for 107 years, and our family has been either participating or attending the “Stock  Show” for nearly that long. The city’s tradition of taking down Christmas at the Civic Center after the stock show is over has become our family’s tradition as well. Last Sunday was the last day of the Stock Show, so guess what was on the agenda.

Bows and Garland

The Cliff House kitties and alpacas helped. Squeaky supervised and Whisper helped Jared.

The boys watched in fascination; they’ve never understood the whole red bow and garland thing.

The 2013 Stock Show is over and another new year has begun for our family. Our very best wishes to everyone for a happy and healthy New Year.

    I was raised with the same “when the stock show is over” schedule of taking the deco down. Looks like the kitties are much more in tune with wreaths and bows than the pacas are! Oh those silly 2-leggeds!
