After each holiday fair, after the kids are asleep, we always reflect on the holiday fairs of years past, and marvel at our growing place in this community we have chosen for our children and our family. On this day filled with singing, music, celebration and goodwill, we feel so lucky to have landed here, surrounded by the closeness of friends that warm our hearts year after year.
Someday soon the girls will get sick of candle-dipping, and making jump ropes. They won't care about the marionette show, and will spend more time running with their friends than hanging around with us.
But no matter how old we get, the third Saturday in November will always be a magical day...
Let the holidays begin!
