Thursday afternoon, Anna and Mary worked on our Christmas caroling cards. We are all anxiously awaiting our caroling evening to almost 40 neighbors in our area. We hope for the evening to be cold and snowy, but we’ll see when it comes to the day! Last year, we had perfect weather–it began to snow while we were out, and it was freezing cold.
We will be baking our fresh, cinnamon bread with a frosting glaze to hand out when we carol. If you are a new blog reader (or an “old” one 🙂 ), you are welcome to read about last year’s caroling here.
“I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the LORD, and the praises of the LORD…” (Isaiah 63:7).

That’s so nice. We’re planning to go caroling next week! Caroling blessings!
Wow! It’s amazing to see how much Abby has grown in the past year!
I’m probaby completly overlooking it, but did you ever have a chance to post the recipe for the cinnamon bread?
I posted it on Cookbook. Here’s the link: http://openforums.titus2.com/forums/t/14585/
I love Christmas Caroling. What a joy your family must be to your neighbors. Can you share the cinnamon bread recipe?
Blessings, Mrs. Mari

I love your yearly caroling tradition and the bread you give out-wouldn’t want to carol up in Massachusetts would you;-)
Did I miss the cream cheese frosting recipe? We did this one year and they were so good. I might use this when we go carolling to our neighbors this year. Can you post the cream cheese frosting recipe? Thanks, Mrs. L
It’s a recipe I found when searching the internet. I’m sure there are tons! The key to this one was beating the butter/cream cheese for awhile. Otherwise, the basics of butter/cream cheese/powdered sugar/vanilla.
Love reading (and seeing) your family’s yearly traditions. So nice! How do you select which day to go caroling?
We have found the Sunday evening right before Christmas is the best time to catch people at home–it’s amazing. This year, we plan to go either this Sunday, the 13th, or the next Sunday, the 20th. We’ll be watching the weather, etc.
i know you were just holding that gun up there to demonstrate how it is held. otherwise you would have had your safety glasses on as well as your ear plugs in… especially near that concrete wall. merry christmas maxwell gang!!!!!
Good encouragement Brother.
Your caroling cards look beautiful! You are inspiring me to do more baking…we made Snickerdoodles tonight (a German cookie). God bless!
