Or just look at my brother on the front row dancing to Silent Night
That wasn't so bad.
Seriously, I don't have pictures of her coming off the stage and I had to go talk her into going back up there. She stood doubled over for the three songs before her solo. Sean had to go on the stage to tell her she was ok. A teacher also went onstage to pray with her hoping it would calm her. The turtle neck was not a good choice. She about tore the thing off. (I guess the whole sweater dress, cami, tights and sherpa(?) lined boots while cute were very hot). I was very proud of her though. She sang the last verse of Silent Night and hit every high note. She really does have a beautiful voice. She received lots of encouragement from her friends on stage with her. Sereval people told me at school the next day that they had been praying for her. She needed it. I think the choir teacher needed those prayers also, she was very nervous when her soloist almost passed out onstage!
Some families in our neighborhood got together and made a float for the parade and invited Grace and Garrett to be on it. Grace had a blast. Garrett wasn't all that impressed, until he saw some people he knew. It was a lot of fun and I got to meet some more of our neighbors with children the same age as mine! I love our neighborhood!
and cut down the tree so we can go, it's cold out here!!
We actually got the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. Do you think it is decorated? Uh, no. It has lights and ornaments, but it is so tall that I can not reach the top(even with the ladder, I almost killed myself yesterday trying) to put the ribbons on. Sean will have to do that. I don't have the other tree that I can reach done either. I do have the trees in the kids rooms decorated. Gracie picked a red and silver theme this year and Garrett picked blue and silver. I have the weaths on the door and light fixtures and the mailbox. I made a button tree (it took forever!) and a paper tree, and I have some of my cards done. I love Christmas, but I love it a lot more when all the decorating and projects are done. I will post pictures soon (I hope it is done soon!)
