I have 10 folders that I'll be putting together.  (I figured we can share if we wind up with more folks.)

I will be there - should we get pizza or something so we have some food before we depart?

Oh and I'll be there.  ;)  :p

Yay! We have a confirmed request.  A woman in Brenda's neighborhood would like us to come by and sing.  They will be having a family fun night of baking cookies and playing games, so she won't be able to join us to do the rounds and sing, but would love for us to stop by.  They will be up probably until around 9ish.

I'll have hot tea and hot chocolate for tonights caroling.  I've also got some cookies and a huge box of chocolates that my boss sent to me to share.

Awesome.

Jenn, what does our line-up look like?

Also, should I dress up in my Dickens outfit?  Anyone else dressing up?

We have four houses that want us to stop by for sure.  Brenda mentioned two across the street, two others have given me addresses.  The two that gave me addresses say they shouldn't be in bed before 9 or 9:30.

I haven't had a chance to look at their location but would be happy to print out a map if you'd like so you can see where they are and decide what route you think we should take.

I can't dress up in Dickens :(  - I completely forgot I don't have a corset.  Thanks Claudia for the offer to borrow your hoop skirt, but my outfit still isn't complete.  I appreciate the offer.

Beth I think it would be cute if you dress up in Dickens attire.   :goodstuff:

I'm probably going to wear what I have on now, which is grey slacks, a white blouse and Christmas Red colored jacket.  :)

It went really well.

Thanks to everyone who came out.

Brenda - Awesome after-caroling snacks.  And I loved the candles.  I want to get some.  :)  Just because they're cute.

Jenn - Thanks for making our folders.  They were perfect.

Claudia - You and I should start a band!  :)

Boys - Even if you didn't sing (Steve), you were all rockstars.  :)

Anika - You are ADORABLE!


I can't wait til next year!
