Kimber has come every day to work on Christmas projects at are house. It makes things easier when Lillian can entertain Ben. Kimber is then free to sew to her little hearts content. Sadly, I've not taken a picture of all that.
Chad's choir has had a couple Christmas performances. They went and sang for old ladies at a church lunch in Salem. It all went well, with the exception of forgetting one singer at the school. They figured it all out and got everyone where they needed to be. They also sang at a fundraiser. That was an eventful event as well. I hear the power went off and they all had to wait for a long time before they could finish singing their set of music for the evening.
John, Kimber, Ray, Hannah and I went with our friend Megan to see A Midsummer Night's Dream out at the Pentacle Theater. It had a slightly different twist with the presentation. The director chose to set the play in an urban environment. The fairies were Punks and Goth. The Duke was a politician. I actually loved the performance My Friend Robert play Oberon. He did an excellent job. He got a red mohawk for the play. He said it took him a long time to get all the tattoos and make up on and to lace up all his costume parts. There were a few weak performances, but I attribute them to inexperience. The Pentacle is a community theater after all. Directors are at the mercy of who comes to audition In fact, I different friend joined the cast because someone quite. He too did an excellent job.
Lillian helped John tie the tree to the car. The rest of us jammed out to Chad's new music. Once we got home, John got the tree ready. Lillian was driving us all crazy with all her dancing around. John got some lights on the tree. He even put a few of the extra lights on the tree outside. That is not our normal m.o.
Sunday was relaxing. The best part about the weekend is that I finished the Book of Mormon that I've been reading for Ben. I can't wait for him to be 12. That is when I've decided to give him the book with all my notes. I hope he treasures it as much as I treasure it and treasure him.
We'll be updating things again next week.
