Christmas caroling

Dear Dan,

Remember when you, Mary Lou and I would go Christmas caroling in the neighborhood? Mom loved to open the front door and listen to our voices floating through an otherwise "silent night." We weren't allowed to go in to the houses. We could sing on the front steps and we were allowed to accept cookies if offered.

The only problem we ever had was Mary Lou! All she had to do was sing "5 gold rings" during the 12 Days of Christmas. She was so busy craining her neck looking at people's homes she would forget to sing. We'd have to nudge her for the "5 gold rings" - every friggin' time!
