The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me. ~ Psalm 16:6 nasb

Here We Come A-Caroling!

Well, the house was as decorated as it was going to get.  And just in time, too!  We hosted a neighborhood caroling party, where we invited several families over for a fun afternoon, plus whoever wanted to could go door-to-door down our street and sing carols for our neighbors.

The carolers spent a long time out on their afternoon trip (they went out again after dinner, those brave souls!), and I captured them caroling to us when they returned.

Back inside, we laid out all the food--boy was there a lot!!--and everyone got their bodies warmed and their bellies filled.  And then it was time for some more fun, in the form of indoor music--jamming style!   Our musicians:

Our listeners:

And our sibling dancers, too!

There were a few music lessons sprinkled in:

Heather learns the bodhran.

Dale (above) and Caleb (below) show how it's done.

And Dale gave a young boy a lesson, too!

An afternoon of music, with great friends and family, and great food.  Christmastime doesn't get any better; this was all the gift we wanted.

Back to life,
