Day Three Hundred Eighteen, December 6, 2011

winter lights and magic

Today was the day Nikolaus comes to see German children and they get ready for him by cleaning their boots (Nikolaus Stiefel) and setting them out at night to wake up to sweets and presents if they were good the past year or a tree branch in the boot if they were not. Lea lives in a constant state of expectancy and awe at the magic of this time of year and she is completely absorbed in her innocent belief that the extraordinary is part of life, a life  that she never allows to become mundane.

So we have been baking cookies, decorating daily, making crafts, and waking up to surprises for the last few weeks swearing never to let the magic slip away.
