It was a very nice Sunday. Later in the evening, we went carolling as a family to some families in the church and some older shut ins. I wasn't sure how the older kids would react, but they jumped right in and everyone sang. We brought them some cookies and everyone was so grateful and excited that we had come to their house. Every year I'm always amazed when we go carolling. It is such a little thing, but to these people, especially the shut ins, it means so much.
Afterwards, Dad suprised us and took us all out to dinner. We hardly ever go out to eat as a family because of the cost of feeding so many people, so this was a real treat. Then home to watch a family favorite, The Santa Clause. It was a great day! I loved having all my kids home!
