Christmas Caroling 2014

Tonight was our third annual neighborhood Christmas Caroling with the Cub Scouts.

Christmas Caroling 008

This is one of my favorite Christmas traditions. You would be surprised at how happy Christmas caroling makes people. We always let our neighbors know we are coming ahead of time and many of them have cookies and hot chocolate waiting for the boys.

Christmas Caroling 007

We have found that kids and adults get excited to see carolers at their door. This year I learned that one of our neighbors on our route is being treated for cancer and was excited we were coming. I saw him smile tonight when the kids were singing. That really is the spirit of Christmas to me.

We wear silly hats and ring bells and sing out of tune (well, except for Lori who sings like a pro) and have a great time. It was a special night.

The boys actually did a lot of singing today, now that I think about it. They sang Christmas songs at church this morning too.

We had a visitor at the Cub Scout pack meeting. I’m not sure how I feel about this since he gave the boys the wood for their pinewood derby cars as a present. The pinewood derby is a love hate thing for us (for everyone who participates, right?)

Aidan was camera shy this time. Good thing Dane and his friends were ready to show off their hats.

And Dane was very proud to win first place overall at the BB gun target shooting competition.┬áIt was ugly sweater night – can you tell?

I have decided to start knitting again. I missed it and I didn’t even realize it until I started again. Plus, I saw this amazing yarn.

So, I am wondering, are you ready for Christmas?
