fa la la la la......




Tonight our small group went caroling. In a bus. How much fun does that sound like?????



.....all 24 of us...in one bus. It made for lots of noise, and tons of fun.















Some homes we went into....and others we stood outside. It was a perfect night to be out.









We also visited a nursing home tonight.




We were hoping the residents would be in a central location so that we could sing to all of them together. However they were all in their rooms. So we walked up and down the hallways singing. After about 5 minutes of walking the halls one of the doors opened. An older woman stepped out. Here is where I will insert the quote of the day.




Donovan: "we got a live one."




meaning, stop, let's gather around her door to sing to her.


However, it may have been a little inappropriate given we were in a NURSING HOME!




And really-speaking of inappropriate, does that shock any of you that know my husband?

They were probably all in bed by 7:30pm.......when you eat dinner @ 4:30 - 5pm what is there to do the rest of the evening? I'm sure they loved the singing!
I love Donovan's comment! what a guy-what a guy! :) You made some great memories for the kids!
I remember a few yrs. ago we went on a site inspection cruise thru the Panama Canal. The Cruise ship was beautiful, but the problem is that the average age on this ship we were on was probably 75 yrs. old! It was in Feb., so it was all older people. They all go to bed before 9pm and the bars and lounges were literally empty! Willy & I walked into a bar and they said almost the same thing that Donovan said, 'there are live people on board!' They were so excited! That would make for long evenings for those people working the cruise ships that time of year!

What great memories for your kids. My husband and I were just talking about caroling the other day. We both used to go when we were younger.

Love the quote! Made me laugh!
