Fortunately that picture is from a couple years ago and is not the current snow state.
The kids and I have spent a couple hours a day up there this last week. Cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning! Yesterday my mother-in-law generously gave a few hours of her time to come out and finish the cleaning I simply wasn’t going to get to (but still needed desperately to be done). Today the kids and I tromped through 4″ of snow with a couple bags of decorations because what’s a Christmas vacation cabin without a few decorations?
Among the Things is a little fake tree, and as I pulled it out LK asked, “Why is it such a little tree?”
Before I could answer Pokado looked at him sideways and replied, “Because it’s a little cabin.”
As an aside, decorating this year is minimal. With Christmas less than a week away, I have a hard time justifying decking the halls when it’s just coming down again in another week or so. We have our tree and I decided to bring out the Christmas tea set and my snow globes (I don’t collect too many things, but I do like tea things and snow globes!). Even they may return to the boxes if I feel cleaning the shelves for them isn’t going to happen in a timely enough fashion!
