December 01

December came on with a blast today. Strangely enough, neither the post-Thanksgiving dates, nor the cold weather, had helped bring on a sense of Christmas, but today's festivities moved things along a bit.  I've been working a lot over the past two weeks, with Calvin's help, to prepare for a special holiday book sale at the library, and Calvin's been looking forward to Santa for a week. Today was the culmination of both our hard work and our hard wishing. The book sale at the library, which was a great success, had me busy all day, while Calvin and Jon started decorating at home and located a Victorian Santa at the manor house in our little village. Following the sale the boys cheered me on in a holiday charity 5k.

So it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas around here, but today's balmy, foggy weather still doesn't look like the white holiday we're hoping for. Thankfully we have a few more weeks to wish and hope. All I want for Christmas? Snowflakes.
