Christmas Caroling!!!

To me, the best part of the Christmas
Season is spending time with family and friends.
Since my family insists on being 7 hours away,
my friends fill those HUGE voids for me!

We had our 2nd annual Christmas Caroling
party last night. We had a big group in our
little abode, but it was a blast!!!

Liz and her 3 adorable daughters came
prepared to sing and play games. We had
a $5 Gift Exchange this year and it was
a little too fun....and loud!!!

Kerry & Will are always so much fun. Jason
& Will disappeared for a while. They took
Amy's new car for a joy ride. Silly boys!

Laura & Chris are a wonderful new addition
here in Sedona. We are so lucky to have them in
our lives. They are the only other Mormons in
our group of Catholic friends. They do a great
job keeping up with them and their taunting! :0)

Amy is posing with her arm around Imaginary
Paul. Next year, I won't accept his silly excuses! :0)
Amy, Liz, and our friend Juli (who now lives in Texas)
came straight from a weekend in Phoenix. They were
exhausted and they still came and led the group
games and gift exchange. Thanks, guys!

I always try to give my friends a unique gift
every year. Last year, I gave the dentist wives
false teeth made out of soap. This year, I went
in a different direction and made them some
Monogram plates to put up in their kitchens.
I think they turned out beautifully
(I am so humble). :0)

We have the greatest neighbors! We all attacked
their front doors with our voices and were
received very well. From popcorn to
gingerbread men, we were well taken care of.

Thanks for another great Christmas,
my dear friends!
I love you all!!!

That's great, I did not know people still went caroling. The plates look great but the fake teeth sound like a lot of fun.

Wow! You're amazing! That sounds like so much fun! Bummed I missed it - I could have led you all since I'm an accomplished chorister now! Great looking party! I'm jealous!
