Tuesday morning we woke up, and there was about four inches of snow covering everything. Our weather here in Kansas is quite unusual, and we never know when we will get snow. Our first thought was – this would be a great day to go caroling! When there is snow, people around here donâ€™t go out much, and that would make it a perfect caroling night. Normally, we carol on the second Sunday before Christmas, but this year we decided to try something different.
After discussing plans with Dad, our preparations went into full swing. With 45 loaves of cinnamon bread to be made, we would have to get a move on! We started the first batch of bread, and since Sarah was busy getting the Dadâ€™s and Momâ€™s Corners sent out, I had to do some guessing as how the bread was to be made. Jesse was a great help and became excellent at preparing the filling. Mary and Mom worked on mixing up some cookies that our family could have for a snack that evening after caroling. Everyone pitched in where needed, and there always seemed to be a stack of dishes to be washed!
Lunch time rolled by, and we were so busy that we forgot to fix anything. Mom decided that we would eat a larger/late lunch then we wouldnâ€™t have to take time for supper. After Sarah sent out the Corners, she came up and helped! The afternoon went pretty smoothly as we kept the batches of bread moving through the oven. We then put cream cheese frosting on the top and tied ribbons with the card around the bread.
It was a busy day, but we enjoyed the time together. We were just barely ready when 6:00 arrived!
â€œAnd Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.â€ (John 6:35)
