This year the children participated in their first-ever Christmas concert. The boys played recorder
and played handbells, Brooke sang with the choir and also played handbells.
They all performed the PattyCake Polka, sweet things!
Their music teacher was wonderful! We all are excited for next semester.
Brea loved being in the audience, especially since she got to sit with her beloved Grammy,
and even got her photo taken with her favorite “star.”
might be offended by this post.
Our family loves a rip-roarin’ good time,
which often involves loud noises,
and all around crazy love.
So if you wander by and hear our house rumbling, put on your crazy shoes and stop on in!
We’ll help you join right in 🙂
There are a dozen word pictures I could use to describe this last year of my life; I’m going to stick with Frozen.
I don’t want to go into a lot of detail, because some folks in my life might not understand fully if I let it all out. But I do want to say that 2010 has been a long, hard, wintry season . It has been painful. Even debilitating.
In January, I was warm. By November, I was frozen.
Tonight, I dripped.
I even puddled.
I’m re-learning how:
To have fun
To move about in our own family rhythms
I cannot remember when last I was this free in laughter and love.
I have to remember I’m not completely thawed. That will take time. And willingness to surrender. But what reward it will bring.
This winter, I will follow the sun and drink in its freedom.
Happy 7th Birthday to my littlest dude!
He made these awesome Lego place markers for his birthday dinner.
And he chose these totally cool candles for his cake.
He’s my favorite 7 year old son!!
Our favorite theater, Sight and Sound, in Lancaster, PA offered FREE tickets for their current show, Miracle of Christmas!
NOTE: CYBER-MONDAY SPECIALS HAVE BEEN CONTINUED ON TUESDAY. DON’T MISS OUT!
A friend told us the tree inside was beautiful, but who knew it was this glorious?
The children saved their money to buy extra-soft, inexpensive, yummy-smelling (just like the candied almonds they sell in the lobby) stuffed animals.
I snuck this shot in of the show. I hope it was okay to do that–they just asked for no flash photography. Anyhoo, I want to show you who have never been what to expect. They put on fantastic three sided theater!
Of all the fun we had that day (lunch and dinner out, meeting up with friends, buying treasures, eating candied almonds, etc.), our favorite part was having Aunt Dot join us on our field trip.
Hoping your family enjoys the upcoming Advent Season, the season we await His arrival!
