Camille has taken on the holidays with an energy I've rarely seen from her. Last night she and Ike hung lights around the porch
Today I came home from work and there were more lights in the dining room, and then she and Sarah and Sophia drove up with our tree tied to the top of Sophia's car! How delighted I am to feel someone take the baton from me...even if it's only for one year. I got to sit right here, and knit and chat with the girls while they worked like a team of horses hanging, balancing, climbing, preparing.
At school, I told the story of Saint Nicholas, and the children and I brought loaves of warm, cripsy crusted, whole wheat bread, fresh out of the oven, to two old neighbors. It was a cold day and we "crunched" in the leaves to know that we were walking a safe distance off the road. The folks were so grateful. The children so proud.
Tis the season.
