March 24th and the Christmas tree is still up (’til midnight anyway)

Today is Griffin’s birthday. If you recall his birthday wish was to have the Christmas tree still up on his birthday.  (The Absolutely Perfect Birthday Wish)

We made it.

Even though it meant we had a Christmas tree up on New Years and Valentines’ Day and on St. Patrick’s Day and dangerously close to Easter…

Even though it has meant that no one has been able to walk a straight path through our living room for months without bumping into branches….

Even though we’ve had some neighbors question the colored lights in our window…

We kept it up. For Griffin.

The Christmas tree stays up until Griffin's birthday

Happy Birthday sweetheart. We love you.

And now as a gift to me, tomorrow you can help me take the darn thing down.
