From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

An unspeakable crime in Australia. Eight children killed in a home and no arrests made yet. We'll bring you the latest. Plus, Pakistan responds. The government taking out dozens of militants after a school massacre that killed more than 140 people. With all that in the world, how about a little something to make you smile. We could all use it. Gerron Jordan will take you "Skating on the River" and give you a look at "The Nutcracker – A Tale From the Bayou" about to hit the stage. And we'll continue our 9Gifts of Christmas giveaway. We'll see you for 9NTM, The Big Extra Hour and The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
