The Carollers

Today the carollers came.

I've been waiting to hear from them and had almost given up hope that they were coming. But on Sunday night we found out that they would be coming today! That didn't give us much time so today after work we rushed out to get some juice and snacks for them.

When I got home I got a pleasant surprise! You see I've been wanting to put up lights on my Christmas trees around the perimeter but when I asked the electrician about he wiring he gave me some lame excuses. So dejectedly had to forego my idea of putting up blue and white lights. Instead I put up the lights in my porch! And it looked nice as a consolation. But like I said when I got home my neighbour who lives opposite from my house had his workers install guess what?? Blue and white light on my Christmas trees. I was really happy. He runs a rental company and is familiar with the outdoor lighting and my Christmas trees actually face the front of his house so he also benefits but I'd say it was mutually beneficial! LOL

Here is what it looked like outside my house tonight...
The carollers came at around 8.30 pm. There were close to thirty of them. They stopped at my neighbours house first and we went over to hear them sing. After that they came over to our place. The first number was Frosty the Snowman and my little one was so happy and she clapped and danced along to the singing! Next they sang It Came upon a Midnight Clear...a classic...and I enjoyed it although daughter was not too amused LOL Then came Santa Claus is Coming to Town and the rounded off with We wish you a Merry Christmas! It was nice to hear them sing!!
This was just before they came and then the place was filled!!
You can see the little one had a good time from her smile!

After they finished at our place we decided to just follow them as they went to a few other houses in our area. We left the camera behind and just had fun singing with them. Even the little one seemd to have a good time. I can't wait for her to grow up a little so that she can join the group too!
