SNOW

We have a lot of it!!! At this point, I can measure around a foot. It is still snowing, and is supposed to keep on snowing right through tomorrow morning. Yikes!

Church services for tomorrow have already been cancelled. That's a big disappointment, because our service tomorrow was going to be so special. First the Bell Choir was to play. Then my children's choir kids were ready to sing two songs. A young man/former dance student of mine who is a professional actor/singer/dancer had prepared a beautiful medley of
Angels, we Have Heard on High/Silent Night/O Holy Night. My daughter, C, was going to dance during the "Angels" section, ending by ringing the C5 bell as J began singing Silent Night. The Chancel Choir was prepared to join him on the chorus of Silent Night, and then J would continue into O Holy Night. Then, as if that wasn't enough music, the Chancel Choir had prepared a beautiful Cantata. B1 had a solo in it. All that hard work and now . . . nothing. There is hope that the Cantata can be done at the early Christmas Eve service. I hope I can get my children's choir together for that service, or maybe for next Sunday's service. I'm not sure if J will be in town long enough to get to do his songs.

BUT, we're all safe and sound. It's a beautiful snow, and we're enjoying this time together. I have baked and cooked (and washed dishes) all day long.

Okay now that I've joined your blog I'll be expecting you to post more often. You sound like me if and I when I ever GET a snow day, I spend it baking and cooking, but I love every minute of it. Enjoy your family time and do some snuggling.
