That's what it feels like... and I know its silly.

They're objects, after all; 
inanimate and of little intrinsic monetary value.
But I see them through the eyes of personal history.

I remember who I was with 
and under what circumstances they were acquired.
 I know which ones my kids were always glad to see
and which ones scared them into behaving until Christmas!
 From minis
 to handmade,
there are so many stories to tell;
 but the time to tell them is too short.
 They're being packed away later today.
And that makes all of us sad.
