It was very cold so  myself and the middle two boys  went Christmas caroling. We went to several houses and it took us about 3 hours and i could not feel my toes when we were done!
The rest of the group, getting out of the car! There was not many of us so we had to sing loud!

Get those hats on good and snug…..and try to jump in the snow before it is time to go quick!

We sang at two fire stations and L. loves fire trucks so he pestered the firemen with questions and they remembered from all his questions from the time before he had visited the fire station!  They patiently showed him all the nooks and crannies on their new ladder truck. <p>
When I went to my moms house we had  some boxes of treats to hand out to friends and families, so we put them together with cheese, candies, cookies, homemade caramel corn, crackers, (I just realized that is all stuff that starts with the letter "C") and headed out of the warm house to deliver them in the snowy weather!
My sister  Monica with the box to take to the car, ready to go!
P. ready to go by the front door!  Notice the snow on his head!!
The first stop was an old friend of ours whom had his quirks, that is for sure! He showed us some interesting picture of his relatives, but sadly you could not see any of their faces as it was just their gravestones. i have some pictures, but it may not want to load them!

<p> Next we stopped at another friends house, who was actually the Mayor for the last several years, but he is thankfully going to be county commissioner now and is looking forward to it. He lost his eye in a freak well (for water) accident last year and when the children asked him what was under his patch, he showed them, much to their delight! The boys enjoyed the visit as his wife also used to come to my house and teach the older two little preschool lessons while  back as well as her teaching Fred ESL. <p>

We dropped off stuff at various places and came home for some hot tea and finger foods for dinner!  I think next year we will branch out into some more exotic finger foods. This year we had a cheese ball, tortilla pinwheels, calzones, caramel corn,  and some other things! It was good though!

    Looks like fun! I wish that we had some snow here in Georgia, but that is highly unlikely. I have never been caroling before. What a nice tradition.
