Last week, we went on a special 12 Voices of Christmas outing. It worked out for Christopher and Joseph’s families to join us, along with GiGi. We first ate dinner and then went to Union Station in downtown Kansas City and walked around. They have a neat mini train display right now. We listened to the 12 Voices of Christmas when we were driving. It was a wonderful way to spend the evening!
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John 1:14
“I’m going to have to get a bigger porch!” Yes, that was one of the exclamations we heard when our group of 21 showed up. One person even said, “You’ve got new singers!” It’s true. Our group grew again this year.
We caroled Sunday the 20th, and although we would have loved snow, the mild temperatures made for less bundling and the ability to keep the littles extra warm.
We had a great time sharing Christmas joy with our neighbors. In all, we clocked about 2.4 miles and around 30 homes.
I’ll share about the caroling party we had one week later.
“I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.” Psalm 7:17
We are so grateful for you all, and we pray you have a blessed day celebrating God’s gift to us, Jesus!

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
We wanted to give something that would be really special to our elderly friends for Christmas. We know the ladies don’t do much in the kitchen anymore, so Anna and Mary decided to make cinnamon rolls. Saturday evening, the girls began the process, staying up late to allow the rolls time to rise. Then, the next morning, they baked them, and with Mom’s help, they were a great team finishing the process.
Sunday, after church, Anna, Mary, Abby, Betsy, and Tina handed out the rolls. Wow! Our friends were delighted!
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” Luke 6:38
