On Sunday night, our friend/neighbor/coworker Rachael invited us over for an evening of carols and dessert. Besides some delicious pumpkin pie, stollen, and other Christmas classics (Rachael is a top rate cook!), we really enjoyed the music. Tim and I brought along our instruments, and the others provided flute, piano, and cello. It was a delight.
Since our neighborhood kids love music, Tim and I mentioned to them that it might be fun to sing carols this afternoon. About an hour ago we heard two little voices outside our door. "Timoteo! Hannah!" The twins (2.5 yrs old) had come with paper crowns and a whole assortment of kid-sized instruments. Despite the fact that no one really knew the words to the carols, we had a great time. Those little faces make just about anything worthwhile.
