It's that time of year again for the Christmas Concert. Here is a great little recap.
Concert weeks with the choir are pretty crazy. At the beginning of the week the choir president told us to kiss our family goodbye and say we'll see them in a week. True statement! Monday is our only day off and we're every evening from there. The girls didn't really notice my being gone but I didn't see Chuck much at all. I would kiss him on my way out the door as he was walking in most nights. Tuesday and Wednesday were rehearsal nights. Then we had concerts on Thursday, Friday, Saturday night and Sunday morning. Some friends came on Thursday night. Rosanne and Austin came on Friday night. Saturday night my parents, sister, aunt, Chuck, Gordon, Carol, Andy and Alexa came. My sweet neighbor Kristin came and watched the girls so Chuck could come to the concert. I rode home with Chuck and we were STUCK in the City Creek parking. We moved five car lengths in FIFTY minutes. It was MIND NUMBING and SO aggravating. It meant I was home all of about five hours before I needed to leave for the Music and the Spoken Word broadcast and mini concert in the morning while fitting in time to say hi to my family who JUST drove into town.
I slept in my makeup and hair
Another highlight of the concert is Rick Elliot on the organ. My favorite part was his performing the Flight of the Bumble Bee on the pedals. WHAT!!!
