Busiest time of the year!
Andrew Graham ~ costumed for the cantata and keeping his lines "handy." You need to maximize this picture to "appreciate" his hard work! The best part was that his first words happened to be, "We were educated men. . ."
They just couldn't memorize! Ha. :-)

Seth singing away in the kids' choir.
Our little buddy ~ Stevie Russo. (He kept smiling after the picture was taken!) I had the privilege of babysitting him last Wednesday. He is so cuddly, and we had a blast. The boys were disappointed when he had to go home.
At the church's Christmas dinner. (Seth's fruit punch produced some charming lips!)

Whew! It has been a crazy weekend, but all the dinners, programs and cantata happen to be completed! I really enjoyed being the pianist after I made it through the first ten measures. (Those always have me a little nervous.)

Having spent so much time on other things, you can imagine the state of my house. . .my poor house. . .sad house. . . There are mounds of laundry to fold, stacks of things needing to find their proper place and a restaurant amount of dishes that need tending. . . It is a good thing that I like to clean!

On the other side, I have been having lots of fun with the boys as we prepare for Christmas. All of my gifts are wrapped, and all boxes are in the mail. ( I still have a few cards that need to be sent.) Best part - I think the house will be completed by January 1, 2007!

What kind of royalties now that I've graced your website?

Royalties??! You have officially graced the halls of "the castle." You are forever part of "a tale." Isn't that "royalty" enough? :-)

He's a fellow Canadian. Aren't we too far down the food chain to be "royalty." ;)

It is a lot of work to play for a Christmas program and unfortunately, it goes unnoticed most of the time! I always enjoy it once I get into're right the first few measures are the tough ones! I'm sure it was beautiful music tho. Have you produced a CD, yet? If not, you'll have to have Trint help you do one!
