Christmas Concerts!

Hi, friends! Couldn't let CHRISTMAS week go by without posting. :)

We had a great weekend, and I have very few pictures to show for it. I put Eric in charge of the camera, and there was some...er...miscommunication, haha. We have lots of video, though! My computer has not been loving me lately, and I can't seem to get still pictures from video or upload to youtube at the moment, so here is a lovely picture of our friend Adrian. Everybody say, "Hello, Adrian!"

It seemed that our entire weekend revolved around Sunday. Sunday was the day of our annual Christmas service at church as well as a concert that night from our friend up there. I'm pretty sure I've blogged before about how Eric and I started dating and the band and all of that jazz. It's fairly funny stuff that we ALL crack up about now. So of course when Adrian came to town a few of the guys got together to play a song or two or three. 

We didn't have our normal Saturday date night because of band practice (sounds so weird to me now!) but instead we went out to dinner beforehand with Adrian and his wife Angeline. It was super fun! It's always a necessity for us to go out at least once when they are in our neck of the woods. You know the kind of friends that you don't see for a long time, but then you get together and it's like you just hung out yesterday? Yeah, those kind. They are those kind.

I wish I had pictures of the kids' faces when I brought them to the church and they saw their dad playing guitar on the stage. They've never seen that. Which is also so funny to me...I think it's literally been a decade since Eric played in public in any way. :)

Just a lot of fun with old friends and some good music. For a brief moment I was transported back in time. And these two...

They were a hoot. Reagan seems to have taken a liking to Naomi, hehe. Naomi is our friends Chris and Kiara's daughter, and Chris was the lead guitarist in the old band. Any time Reagan saw her this weekend his eyes lit up and they were two peas in a pod. They both have big baby blues, so I totally understand the appeal there. :)

On Sunday some of our kiddos in the pre-k and kindergarten class sang songs in the Christmas service that were just too cute. Gracie really puts her heart into singing and tries hard to do the motions and perform to the best of her ability. And Evelyn...is a ham. I mean, there is just no other way to put it. Put that child in front of an audience, and there is hard telling what she will do! At least it's usually something funny and not too mortifying. :) One thing is for sure, our girls are NOT shy. At all.

(And it's a Christmas miracle - finally got this video to upload!)

Girl never met a microphone she didn't like. :)

Does anyone else feel like Christmas is coming entirely too fast this week?? I keep thinking that I have one extra day to get things done, but nope. Christmas Eve is tomorrow! I still have all of the kids' gifts to wrap (and one to put together!) and a house to clean and we're headed off to the dentist in a little bit for the girls to get their teeth nice and shiny for the holidays. I'm also still finishing up some home made gifts for people, so seriously...let's see how much I'm going to accomplish in the next 12 hours or so! I think I'm more wiped out this year as a pregnant lady than I usually am with a newborn during the holidays, and that's saying something.

If I don't get a chance to post again between now and then (and I hope to, but no promises, haha) I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas!! And I hope that some of you are having a very Happy Hanukkah! I can't wait to see all of the little ones dressed up and hear about all of the fun. IF I'm able to pull it off, tomorrow I will be sharing what's under the Robert Christmas tree for the kids this year. That's a big "if." One of the gifts is supposed to arrive TODAY, and it better get it here. Haha. Okay. It's dentist time. (Pray for me...the girls are not fans of the dentist and I am outnumbered!) Have a great day!
