Friday night the Army Band was at the civic center. It was really good--and it was free!
|It was really very warm, especially in the balcony, so I was glad we hadn't worn Christmas sweaters. Jasmine was wearing the white shirt she wore in our family photo. She's young enough to get away with "stripping down" in there.|
|We had cookies and popcorn at home afterwards. Adam and Kaleb stayed home from the concert together.|
The opening orchestra number. Jessica is the inside end saxophonist.
Here is a video of the youth choir:
|Yesterday I bought an Oster party blender. It holds 8 cups!|
|Everything fits! With room left over.|
|If you have any ideas for smoothies, let me know.|
If you are shopping for children or preteens please go to my other blog HERE and check out my books. Authors who write for the Christian market generally only make 30 cents -80 cents a book (unless you're Karen Kingsbury or Jerry Jenkins or another A list author) so it takes a while to add up.
Another busy week coming up with parties, appointments and games. Jasmine goes to Nemours to check out the ankle problems on Thursday. It's three hours each way and of course that's the day of her band party, but we need to do it. I told her we'd make sure she got to go to the youth group party Wednesday evening to make up for it. Usually she doesn't go Wednesday evenings due to too much homework. Thankfully now that she's in middle school, her choir meets Sundays before the evening service.
Some of us were going to go to Sea World over vacation but have decided not to due to finances--SUV repairs a couple of months ago and everything breaking down. But we'll go another time. We have plenty to do right here.
Hope you are all having a great holiday season so far. What's up next for you or are you through it all already? Leave a comment, let us know. Sometimes it's too quiet on here.
