This evening, it's traditional for the Wart family to decorate our tree. We have loads of beautiful ornaments, many were made by my little brother, Quigley, and me when I was his age. And we like tons and tons of bright and colorful lights! We'll ribbit our favorite Christmas carols and, yes, we'll roast fat bugs on an open fire. My parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins will all be there to help us bring in the official start of our Christmas holiday. Enjoying hearth and home is one of my favorite things to do this time of year. The cost is little, and the pleasures are great. These are the memories that little Quigley, Jr. and I will remember always.
As Christmas comes barrelling towards us, I hope you'll take time this weekend to slow down and enjoy a few of the simple joys that Christmas brings. The holidays only come once a year...be sure to make the most of them. Next December is a long way off!
