Christmas Caroling

We took the kids and went caroling for Maw-Maw, Grannie, and Nanny Mildred last night. Kieanna played her Clarinet to Silent Night and Away in a Manager. The kids sang Silent Night, Jingle Bells, Away in a Manager and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. It was so cute! The older ones even enjoyed it after having to be coaxed to go. We plan on going again to the Nursing home where my grandmother is. My mother actually cried. They were so sweet. The kids cooked and prepared Candy, Cookies, and treats all day and then made goodie bags for everyone. Everything turned out really well. I am so proud of all the kids. Everyone has been exceptionally well behaved this Christmas. Keith ask all the kids in the van last night specific question about Jesus birth, and most all of the kids got all the answers right. I truly want the kids to get the real meaning of Christmas. Now days Christmas is so commercialized. It's all about the money. I do want them to receive gifts and enjoy being a child. But I don't want them to think of just themselves and what they can get. Jesus received gifts and that is one of the reasons we give to each other. Looking forward to many more Christmases with all of the kids!
