Marla used to have caroling parties when she was in high school so when we got an invite from a friend to go this year with the kids, she jumped at the chance to introduce Emma and Henry.
The night we went went caroling (wassailing, if you want to kick it old school) was clear and cool and the kids were so excited. We started out with a bit of pizza and cookies, practiced a few carols in the house and then departed.
It was funny to see the reaction on different faces when we rang the doorbell. I suppose it is a sign of the times that no one gets random visitors – even if they are neighbors – after supper. But, despite the initial surprise, everyone enjoyed the show.
And with these four children smiling and singing for you, how could you not?
