We just finished our traditional Christmas eve caroling. We did 25 families. This year we gave all the members a bag of Florida oranges (from Greece) and their own family copy of the new green hymnal. They were thrilled--even a few tears as we sang from it. To the five nonmember families on our caroling route we gave big plates of brownies and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven.
As we walked around we saw all sorts of manger scenes such as this gingerbread one...
and this marionette one.
But of course our favorite is this one in our living room under our tree.
