Sparkle Is Back
Sparkle showed up at our house again right after Thanksgiving. It is so fun to see how excited the kids get when he arrives. He really does become the topic of conversation in our house for most of the Holiday season. He has already been many places in our house this past week.
This year the kids drew him pictures and made bead jewelry to send back to the North Pole with Sparkle. They were thrilled when the next day, Sparkle was wearing his wreath they made him and the letters were gone.
One night he moved while the kids were watching TV and boy was their major excitement over him moving when they were still awake.
We are so grateful that we get to have Sparkle in our lives. He truly does bring so much anticipation and excitement to our Holiday Season. The first thing A, E, K do in the morning is find Sparkle, that's even before they eat their advent chocolate for the day.
What a wonderful time of the year!
