Happy Holidays 2013

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  We had an awesome holiday season.  I was kept busy planning and performing in several music programs.  I love Christmas music though, so I didn't mind.  I planned and produced Encore's recital, which you can see highlights in my previous post.  I also, sang at my high school drama teacher's (Mrs. Nelson) funeral.  I was honored to be a part of such a special event for her.  She was such a big part of my high school years and I am so grateful for all the opportunities, love, and time she gave so willingly to me and to all my other classmates.  She will be missed by many.   I planned entertainment and performed for our church's Christmas Party.  I was nervous as I chose a lot of non-traditional music, but I received rave reviews and so many sweet compliments.  I was so happy that it was a hit!  Finally, Porter, Kit, Rachel and I performed in our Christmas service.  It was nice to sing with family.  We did "Three Kings" from The Forgotten Carols.  It was a great way to round out our Christmas season.  I love music at Christmas time because it brings me closer to the true spirit of Christmas and the reason for the season: Christ.  We had many gatherings, laughs, games, good food, family fun, I'm sad holiday season 2013 is over.  However I am so excited for 2014.  Big changes are coming for our little family.  I can't discuss all my feelings of what is brewing, but hopefully by spring we will have a better idea of where we are headed.   For now here are some clips of our holidays, plus a video of a pole performance I choreographed and performed in last week.  I'm the green fairy.

Mrs. Nelson's funeral:  Former students singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" one of her favorite songs from the musical Carousel.
