Sing a Song of Christmas

For FHE on Monday night, I read this story, "Sing a Song of Christmas." It's about a little girl who visits an elderly widowed neighbor and finds a way to make her Christmas extra special. In the story, she sings "Silent Night" in German. How handy that Jake served his mission in Germany - he sang the song for us! It was so sweet. After the story and song, we decorated cookies with this fantastic sugar cookie recipe from the Pioneer Woman and we will deliver them to 2 of our neighbors who are elderly widows. We're looking forward to our visits with our sweet adopted "grandmas." How I love Christmas and the togetherness something as simple as decorating cookies and giving them away brings!
