While out caroling last night we found people enjoying hot chocolate by the fire. We sang songs to them about reindeer, and toys, and little boys and their drums. My favorite part was when we started singing the Hallelujah Chorus and snowflakes started falling down!

still nothing... here's hoping for better luck tomorrow!

SewLindaAnn said...

While riding my favorite reindeer with a backpack full of toys and a cup of hot chocolate in my hand, I heard a drum in the distance. Could it be the elves had started the "call for snow" dance without me? Oh no!! As I scurried back to the North Pole to join them I felt a snowflake on my nose. Aah! the dance is working! yeah! Well, at least I'll make it back in time to do some caroling and feel the joy of the Hallelujah Chorus. Merry Christmas everyone!

Kristen said...

Sippif hot chocolate looking out for reindeer!

Today we have lots of snowflake(s), but no reindeer in sight. It's certainly a hot chocolate kind of day!

I met a reindeer, singing in a Halleluja choir caroling, Santa Claus was delivering gifts to children playing on the drum. Suddenly a huge snowflake that looked like cream, fell into the Santa Claus's hot chocolate and then ... there was a great laugh ... merry christmas friends

Connie said...

No words for me today but new blogs to explore!

Kristal said...

While walking my reindeer and drinking hot chocolate, I tripped over some toys while a caroling hallelujah chorus played a drum and sang about a snowflake!

Kathleen said...

here is my phrase:
The snowflake fell on the nose of the reindeer as he was licking up the hot cholotate and all the while the hallelujah chorus were caroling to the beat of the drum in the midst of all the toys...

Ashley Harris said...

Happy day! 2 more for me with a grand total of 4!

Quiltingdaisy said...

3 for day three

Anonymous said...

I heard the thum of the drum.
The reindeer heard it, too!!
It's time to do some caroling,
Amongst a snowflake or two.

The toys are waiting,
The hot chocolate calls,
As our Hallelujah chorus,
Fills all the halls!!

2 today! I really did go caroling with the reindeer!! :)

Third day.... no wrods. Sad! It must mean I have a good day coming in the near future.

sharon said...

One word today! Must have a cup of hot chocolate! Thanks Sharonj.

Sheila W. said...

The children's Christmas concert featured caroling, accompanied by a small boy playing a drum; a skit with kids dressed as reindeer, packing a sleigh with toys, as a solitary snowflake settled on Rudolph's nose; and as a finale the choir marched in singing the Hallelujah chorus, while ladies in the kitchen prepared to serve hot chocolate to all.

whisper@telus.net

Four dogs and one quilter said...

One for me today.

Donna said...

Did you see the snowflake fall on the hot chocolate sipping, drum playing reindeer leading the caroling Hallelujah Chorus in a Christmas dance among the toys?

Happy Bingo!

KristyLou said...

The reindeer were caroling with a drum and handing out toys to the children. When they came to my house singing the hallelujah chorus, I gave them hot chocolate, just as the first snowflake fell.

Lisa Long said...

quiltylisa@hotmail.com said>>>>>
I was making hot chocolate with my granddaughter when we heard the sound of a drum beat in the distance and it was getting closer. "What is that noise?" she asked. We went outside to investigate and it was the Hallelujah chorus coming down out street. She was singing along to the caroling when she suddenly noticed a team of reindeer pulling a sleigh full of toys, she was so excited! Then she said, "Nana, look, Im trying to catch a snowflake on my tongue." It was a great night. And her nana also got 2 words in today Holly Jolly Bingo.

Jessica @BeforeTheDawn said...

The snowflakes fell on the reindeer.

Loose Threads said...

One more word! Snowflake and we are supposed to get somet of those tonight! It's a white christmas in Manitoba this year.

Only one toy, but I can play with the box, too. (Just like every kid out there!)

Anonymous said...

Three words for me today! Yipee!!!

The children's TOYS were wrapped and placed lovingly uinder the brightly lit tree. I was enjoying a tasty cup of HOT CHOCOLATE and admiring the Christmas wall hanging I had made of a REINDEER catching a SNOWFLAKE on his nose whenI heard a distant DRUM. I watched out the window as a croup came carolling down the street, stopping at each dor and singing the HALLELUJA CHORUS. It wa a perfect Christmas Eve.

madakamom@aol.com

Margie said...

Finally got a word today. Maybe a slow start might mean something. The snowflakes are not falling here like back east.

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Here we go. This was fun....

As gentle snowflakes started to fall on the reindeer, the little drummer boy started to play his drum to the tune of the Hallelujah Chorus; the carolers were so over come with joy, that they joined in the singing even though all their children wanted to play with their new toys and warm up with some hot chocolate.

Bobyn said...

The house was overflowing with the noise of a shiny drum and other new toys (I would swear my niece's sounded like a reindeer's attempt at caroling) but as a snowflake fell into my hot chocolate, I sang a quiet bit of the Hallelujah chorus for the peace outside.

2 more today-plugging along towards a full sheet. :D

Karen said...

Well I had a little better luck today ... only wish I could actually see a "snowflake," but since snow is virtually nonexistent here ... guess I will have to settle for pictures!

SewCalGal said...

The Hallelujah chorus with a caroling reindeer brought everyone good cheer.

There was only one snowflake in the sky, which was still all too clear.

The sled was full of toys, including a drum, just about ready for Santa’s big flight.

So all the elves took a break to enjoy some hot chocolate before the big night.

Crossing them off one by one :)

jennifer said...

uh oh big fat zero today.

VickiT said...

Oh gosh, still no words? I am going to uncross my fingers now so I can get some things done. Maybe crossing my fingers like this is jinxing myself.

I'm working on my creativity and will be back later with something that's sure to be a winner hopefully. :)

Wendy said...

Nothing to show today, I didn't get one word.

Bridget B said...

YAY- one word today- we need hot choc. here. Its very cold

Lee said...

First comes the snowflakes
tumbling down
Then comes the drummer boy playing his drum
Next are the reindeer caroling in loud voices
All the verses of the Hallelujah Chorus
Santa then comes and delivers all the toys
And drinks his hot chocolate left by the good girls and boys!

beehappyquilts said...

While driving into Madison yesterday to buy some toys for my grandchildren, I saw our first snowflake of the morning. That is always so exciting. It reminded me of the wonders of this season. I looked to my right and there was a reindeer standing out in the field. My mind has a tendancy to wander so I then thought about sitting around a fire at home sipping on some hot chocolate, listening to neighbors caroling and singing a halleluyah chorus. I was brought back to reality when my son called and told me my little grandson really, really, wants a DRUM. Oh, no, I thought.

I got two more words today. That now gives me three total :)

Tina said...

There aren't any SNOWFLAKES here today. Supposed to be 80 degrees!

Pamela said...

Well, I slept in and found the reindeer left one word for me today! Slow and steady, right?

Marcia said...

The reindeer pulled the sleigh and dodged a snowflake while we were caroling and delivering toys. The others sang the Hallelujah Chorus - I beat the drum - and we all happily sipped hot chocolate. It keeps me In Stitches to play Merry & Bright bingo. One word today.

Karen said...

It was such a sight to see, REINDEER wrapping TOYS and drinking HOT CHOCOLATE as SNOWFLAKES swirled all around them, enjoying the wonderful CAROLING and DRUMs, which brought them great joy when the HALLELUJAH CHORUS was sung!

QuilterMary said...

Slow and steady ... one word for each day so far.

Patty D from NC said...

One word for me today - Drum.

Leila said...

Yes! My first two words And on the blog roll.


The TOYS were trying to DRUM up business for their HOT CHOCOLATE stand by CAROLING, but the REINDEER, with paper SNOWFLAKES hanging from their antlers, drowned out their carols with their stirring rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus.

My word verification is "dying" as in I am dying to get a black out. :)

Lesly said...

No words today - my grand total is three so far!

Great words for Christmas but not a one of them on my list this time around. I won't give up!

Deborah said...

Can you imagine this? The reindeer were pulling our sleigh that was filled with drums and other toys, and we were drinking hot chocolate while singing the Hallelujah Chorus and caroling as the snowflakes fell, making our evening out look like a Christmas card. Whew! That was my phrase. I was lucky today, I was “caroling” the “Hallelujah Chorus”

Sipiweske Quilts said...

We'll be drinking hot chocolate this afternoon to try and keep us warm here in Manitoba - it's really, REALLY cold!

The Cicillian's said...

Did not get any to day, my figers are crossed for tomorrow?

Анастасия said...

One word today. So good :)

Pat said...

As I am sitting here crying because I have no words today, Snowflake(s) are falling and I have my hot Chocolate in my hand trying to figure out how to wrap a drum and other toys. The carolers are outside my door singing a Halleujah chorus. But wait!!! What do I hear above the singing? I do believe it is Santa and a reindeer on the roof.

Today only one "snowflake". Like this game.

While sipping hot chocolate and listening to the Hallelujah Chorus and watching the snowflakes fall quietly outside...I heard the distant sound of my caroling neighbors who were collecting toys and drums for the reindeer to deliver on Christmas Eve! I was so happy to be inside!

Jessica said...

No words today =P maybe tomorrow!

Duff said...

Okay, but remember you asked for it. To the tune of Star Spangled Banner:

O! say can you see reindeer caroling by me,
Hallelujah chorus sings for the toys Santa brings,
Whose broad waist and red hat beckons us to be fat,
O'er marshmallows smores and the friends we adore?
And the hot chocolate grins, the drums banging like tins,
Gave proof through the night that our faith is still here;
O! say does that bright Christmas tree
Ring in the new born King
O’er the land of the free and home of the brave!

Angels Watching Over Me said...

Day 3 and still no words. Congrats to Karen for winning the daily prize.

JayTee said...

While caroling, the reindeer played the drum, sang the Halleijah Chorus, drank hot chocolate and delivered toys before the first snowflake fell!!

robin said...

Day 3 - finally got one word. :o)

JayTee said...

Francis said...

As the HALLELUJAH CHORUS came CAROLING, a SNOWFLAKE fell on the nose of a REINDEER who was drinking HOT CHOCOLATE, playing with TOYS and druming his DRUM.

MoeWest said...

After a busy day of shopping for toys and Christmas ornaments ( the cutest reindeer and a drum), I stopped to listen to caroling of the Hallelujah Chorus and I smiled as I watched a snowflake fall into my hot chocolate.

VickiT said...

Wow. Coming up with ONE sentence using all seven words is tough. LOL I hope you won't be grading on proper sentence structure since mine is a bit of a run-on sentence. LOL

The North Pole is busy this time of the year with reindeer practicing and the toys being made with the elves testing each drum to the magnificent sound of the Hallelujah chorus as Santa rests sipping his hot chocolate while listening to Mrs Claus practicing her caroling while they watch each snowflake fall outside.

Becky said...

I felt so good about my word choices, BUT still no matches. Oh, well this is still fun. Thanks for this bit of holiday fun!

BeachQuilter said...

I looked up at the sky and saw a SNOWFLAKE drift past my nose.

The “reindeer”s hooves “drum”s out a “Hallelujah chorus” along the rooftops as Santa delivers “Toys” among the “snowflake” filled sky and hears the “Caroling” squeals of all of the good girls and boys, warming his heart just like a glass of Christmas “Hot Chocolate”.

Jamie said...

Snowflake and caroling today! So far I have four words!

Wren said...

As the SNOWFLAKE fluttered to the ground to the beat of the DRUM, the CAROLING REINDEER sang the HALLELUJAH CHORUS while the TOYS drank HOT CHOCOLATE.

At least I'm consistent, one word a day. Now if the game just lasted 25 days! ;-)

deserae said...

The reindeer was caroling a hallelujah chorus because the snowflakes were falling on the toys and the drum of hot chocolate.

Linda said...

Oh no! Day THREE!! I have been away from my computer. Gotta catch up! Got ONE today.

Polly said...

OK! I adore that fabric and have none of it…. so I needagottawinit!! So here’s my kooky phrase-
Hallelujah! Chorus is over and we are done caroling in these ridiculous reindeer costumes. I’ve got snowflakes in my contacts and ringing in my ears from that loud drum. I need some hot chocolate before I wrap all those toys for the church party!
Pick me, pick me, pick me, pretty please??? :-) Polly
Merry Christmas!!

Kim said...

Getting ready to sit down with my hot chocolate and who did I see out the window, a reindeer flying by.

Rhanda said...

My favorite Reindeer is Blitzen. I just like how it sounds. :)

Willa said...

With fanfare and drum roll, the reindeer shook off the snowflakes and peered through the window at caroling children who played with new toys. In the background, mom and dad, grannie and gramps, sang along with the Hallelujah Chorus while they sipped hot chocolate.

Then the hush of Christmas Eve descended and the reindeer slipped back to his own family and recited the story of sheep, shepherds, angels and that special Baby.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Yipee, I got one word today! That makes two!

Brockett's said...

Well at least if I only got one it had the right word in it. Enjoying my hot CHOCOLATE on this cold day.

I would love to be listening to the Hallelulah Chorus while watching snowflakes fall . . . but I am not! 4 words so far!

Bonnie said...

It was a very good day. I have 3 for today. Total of 5.

Nicki Lee said...

With one single SNOWFLAKE it signaled to Santa’s reindeer that it was time to help Santa pack up the DRUM and all the other TOYS for another Christmas Season. The HALLELUJAH CHORUS was ready to go CAROLING knowing that Santa would reward them for a job well done with a nice cup of HOT CHOCOLATE and maybe some whipped cream too!

WOW! I wrote mine before I read these...how wonderful and imaginative everyone is! But here goes anyway....The Hallelujah Chorus went caroling but the snowflake fell into the drum so the toys drank hot chocolate while the reindeer took naps...time for a well deserved break for everyone! ho ho ho!!! ♥♥♥

Susan said...

Well this was fun, A SNOWFLAKE melted in my HOT CHOCOLATE as I listened to CAROLING REINDEER singing a HALLELUJAH CHORUS to the beat of a TOY DRUM.

The caroling toys gargeled their hot chocolate to tune of the Hallelujah Chorus, while the reindeer beat the drum blinking a snowflake from his eye.

The children were caroling and singing the Hallelujah Chorus and playing the drum while giving away toys to the reindeer; who were watching the snowflakes and drinking hot chocolate. :)

Mimi said...

Well, I don't know what was in that hot chocolate but when I glanced outside and noticed the first snowflake in the night I also spotted a reindeer caroling a Hallelujah chorus while his hoof beat on the drum! But I only clearly remember backing up and tripping on some toys... the rest could have been....a dream?

Hot Chocolate is served to The Halleigah Chours. The sound of the drum gets the chours to sing "Silent Night". I turn to the window and what do I see a reindeer appear with toys on his back and I think to myself the magic of Christmas is here.

More than a phrase! More like a story!

As I sat looking out the window, I saw the first snowflake and then noticed a group caroling and they actually sang the Hallelujah Chorus! I asked them in for hot chocolate. All the while, little Johnny played with his favorite Christmas toys, his drum and his reindeer!

On the fourth day of Christmas, In Stitches gave to me...four quilters CAROLING, three TOY DRUMS, two REINDEER, and a SNOWFLAKE in a Christmas tree.

On the fifth day of Christmas, In Stitches gave to me...piping HOT CHOCOLAAATE! Four quilters CAROLING, three TOY DRUMS, two REINDEER, and a SNOWFLAKE in a Christmas tree."

...And on the last day of Christmas, I was singing the HALLELUJAH CHORUS after winning Holly Jolly Bingo! :)

Nancy said...

One word today, I am happy about that!! Congratulations to yesterdays winner!! Here's my 2nd chance submission:
While 'Caroling' along, and delivering 'toys', the 'Reindeer' came upon a Big White Rabbit! 'Snowflake' he said was his name. 'Snowflake' offered the 'Reindeer' a Big Tub of 'Hot Chocolate', did they love that! Feeling all cozy with Glee, the 'Reindeer' broke out with song, the 'Hallelujah Chorus' it was. 'Snowflake' joined in with his 'Drum'. The End.

Huggs, Nancy

With the promise of hot chocolate at some stops, we were not going to let a snowflake or two deter us from caroling and we were happy after because eveyone, the reindeer and the toys included (even the wind up monkey with his drum) stood up when we sang the Hallelujah chorus!

(try saying that 3 times fast! lol)
Hugs,

And, now I have 4 words...one today.......A huge snowflake landed in my hair (literally!).

Have you ever met a "Caroling" "Snowflake"? Me neither! Two More today! Woot! this is feeling way to good!

Grace said...

Hallelujah Choris, toys, caroling, reindeer, drums, snowflakes and hote chocolate......these are a few of my favorite things!

Only one word so far - none today.

As I was beating my new drum toys, a snowflake landed in my hot chocolate… I’m out back with the reindeer, listening to the caroling as they hit the Hallelujah chorus.

...and I didn't get ONE word today... maybe tomorrow I'll be singing Hallelujah!

debbie said...

Ok, my creative post:
"Caroling" "Reindeer" loaded "Toys" into Santa's sleigh while singing "Halleluja Chorus" and sipping "Hot Chocolate" out of a "Drum" cooled to just the right temperature by a falling "Snowflake"

Slow and steady... A couple more today!

I got my first two words today....lol. You can't bingo that way.

desertskyquilts said...

Finally got three words today! Yay!

Here's my sentence in poetry:

Reindeer and toys,
And a drum beating noise,
The Hallelujah Chorus
Caroling and hot chocolate for us,
The perfect snowflake,
It must be Christmas!

Joy said...

Oh won’t you come a carolling,
It’s quite the Christmas thing …
The Hallelujah Chorus …
how it moves me when they sing.

It warms my heart like Hot Chocolate
It makes me feel so festive
It fills me up with Christmas cheer,
Like Santa and his eight reindeer
With precious toys
For girls and boys

A snowflake settles on my nose,
I hear a distant drum,
It reminds me why we celebrate ….
Our Sweet Saviour has come!!!

I'm happy with my hot chocolate and the hallelujah chorus today too!!! That's 3 for me so far, woohoo!!!
Hugs,
Joy :o)

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

OK,HERE GOES:
We're off to do some caroling by drum,
Prancing 'round a snowflake or two.
From afar,we hear the Hallelujah Chorus ringing.
Now it's time to hand out toys,while sipping hot chocolate all around!

After singing the Hallelujah chorus,
As the choir had been caroling before us.
We shopped for toys
For good little boys
And found a toy drum for Morris.

While hurrying home to bake
We saw our first snowflake.
The reindeer were roaming
As it began snowing
And hot chocolate to keep us awake.

lotsajoy said...

Second word today...reindeer are in Lapland...brrrr. Today's special gift is very pretty.

AnnieO said...

I got two words today, drum and caroling!

Shannon said...

I got two words today!!! Yes!!

We went to the mall today to hand out TOYS to the kids. The ceiling was decorated with large SNOWFLAKEs. While we were there the high school was CAROLING on the upper level. The band was over in the food court with the REINDEER. The DRUM was to loud! We finished up by drinking HOT CHOCOLATE while the choir sang the HALLELUJAH CHORUS. It was magical!
