I have four or five plates too and should find a wall to display them on instead of tucking them away in a cabinet.

I love the story about the elephant creamer and how you are carrying on your grandmother's tradition of saving pennies in it. That is really lovely. How fun to have a picture of you and your husband way before you got married.

Thank you LindaSonia. I think since I decorate the second the last slice of pumpkin pie is served on Thanksgiving I am completely over Christmas on the 26th. I will say we still have our lights up on the house and I could totally be that person that leaves them up all year long....
