Christmas Spirit

Jase: Tonight marked the beginning of our caroling adventures for the season. Ruth made zucchini bread, chocolate chocolate chip cookies, and toffee after church today. Fudge was made last week. We loaded up some plates and went out to howl at the people we love and even some that we aren't so sure about.

We sung to a couple neighbors, tried to see the people we home/visit teach and a few others. Some weren't home so we added people along the way. One sister was especially touched and it was wonderful to be able to share that experience with her and our children as we sung to her.

We shared this with our extended family last year but we wanted to offer it to anybody else to alter or inspire to create their own. We sing these words to "jingle bells" to the people we carol to who have not yet heard it.

Driving through the rain
In a seven-seat minivan
Bringing yummy treats
Made by Ruthie Anne!
Singing carols loud,
Knocking on your door,
Hoping you will open up
And that we aren't a boor!

Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells! Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to sing on your doorstep today!

I will have to record us singing this and somehow post it on here for posterity's sake.

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
