Music - the Joy of the Season!
Last night the young men and young women of our ward were scheduled to go Christmas Caroling.
I made Brady wear a coat (teens these days) and took him over to the church for the activity. (And to my surprise Brady's coat is too small - the arms almost touch his elbows. I guess I never knew how little it was because he never wears it.)
I never get carolers at my door because I don't live in the subdivisions where our members live. I live in the old downtown of Meridian with no other members around (almost like the mission field-LOL).
However, to my great surprise I had a knock at the door and singing. The older boys and girls were there singing. I have to say they were wonderful. They harmonized and I could tell they take choir at school - because they were very professional.
It was a surprise to have such great singing... usually it is singing in pain and "do we have to do this" attitude.
I hit the mother load with the older kids. It brings a spirit of joy to listen to music and it brightened my night. I wish they could come every night :-D.
The Christmas season has started. I've made a dent in my decorations - but there is still much to do. I love this time of year!
