Wild and Sweet: Christmas 2012
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men." - Longfellow
It was our first Christmas at Big Woods. He awoke before the sun. "I heard the bells!", he squealed. A white wintry fog greeted us. He spied a trail of sooty Santa prints near the fireplace. Tiny blinking lights donned the hermit crab tank, inducing giggles from our boy. Delightful gifts from family and friends. A pile of rumpled paper and colorful ribbons.
"The big bottle vase that you wanted, Mama!"
