The Christmas decorations went up around the Wyatt household went up doing the past week. We pulled out the dusty boxes stored in the attic and unpacked what we so-carefully packed almost a year ago. The tree is up, decked out with lights and ornaments. The nativity scenes are on the mantle, the Christmas candles spread throughout the house, and the Christmas cards are being addressed.
Within the past week there was also a Festival of Lights parade in our small town. It consisted of, by my count, less than 10 "floats," with the last one (being a school bus) having Santa Claus on top, tossing candy to those lining Main Street. It was a fun time to see the kids enjoying the decorated vehicles and enjoying the season.
I love this time of year!
