Our treeParties are in the past, gifts are opened, the Christmas cookies and dinner have been devoured.  Folks are back to work and already looking towards putting 2014 in the past and turning the page to 2015.  Not us!  Yes we celebrated Christmas at home here with a morning FaceTime tea party from MN, phone calls from LIchats with our family, day out to the movies and a wonderful dinner.  But, our tree is down and the inside and outside decorations have been safely packed away for next year.  It’s only because our Christmas celebration continues!  My baking for holidays hasn’t started yet and is staged for tomorrow.  Santa’s Toyota sleigh will get packed  and Rudolph’s GPS will guide us to the North!  Not the North Pole by any means, but MN as the first of our family Christmas starts on Wednesday and will continue into the first couple months of the New Year.  In the Kosec family Christmas isn’t just one day– it lasts for several months!
