Christmas Caroling


This week our church homeschool group went Christmas Caroling at a nursing home. We belong to a very small church which is made up primarily of older people. But, our younger population has going and most of our families homeschool! For the past 2 months, we have been having monthly get togethers. But, this is the first one Alex & I were able to make. We went caroling to a nursing home and then handed out Christmas cards and sugar free candy canes. It was so wonderful to watch these older ladies and gentlemen enjoying the carols and the kids!

                                    

Then, we went back to the church and had a Christmas party. The kids exchanged inexpensive gifts, we had snacks, sang "Happy Birthday" to Jesus, and played games. We had a wonderful time and it is so nice to be getting to know some of the other families from our church!

Such a wonderful gift to give to the elderly. I am so proud of you Alexandra. You have such a sweet heart. You too mom. :0)

What a sweet thing to do! My mother has always worked in elder care facilities, and the older people just love it when young people come spend time with them.
I'm sure your efforts were well received!
