When clustered sparks of many-colored fire appear at night in ordinary windows
Here's a peek at the Christmas decorations at our house this year. Can you believe Christmas Day is next week? I know all the little ones are probably ecstatic that it's only a few days away. For kids, everything is about the countdown to the big day: Advent calendars and letters to Santa and staying up as late as you can on Christmas Eve in anticipation. But these days, I just want to enjoy every day of the whole season, and I wish it lasted just a little bit longer.
