Busy Again

I got out of the habit of writing here because for weeks the only thing happening was me sitting around working on my genealogy or transcribing letters. The weather did not cooperate and while I was on crutches or walking with the boot I was hesitant to venture out much. I've been back in sneakers for a little over a week and it's great to be mobile again.

The tree is up and the boys helped me decorate it. Alex likes to group them all on just a couple of branches.

A week ago today we went to Mike's band and chorus concert. I forgot the camera and Angie still hadn't sent me any pictures but the kids were great. I wasn't crazy about the program selection, especially for the chorus. Mike is still in the percusiion section so during the band portion we didn't get to see much of him. The band as a group as come a long way since the spring concert! The choral selections seemed to be yelled more than sung but the kids were enthusiastic in their presentation.

On Wednesday we went to Alex's holiday musical, called Moosical.

He had a speaking part and was tickled to run over to the microphone every time it was his turn.

It was a cute production and the kids had fun with it. Afterward we had to go down to his classroom so traffic backed up behind me as I had to take the steps one at a time. He came right out and back up the stairs we went. If I'd known I would have just gone to the cafeteria and waited for them. I did get a nice little workout and the foot was fine.

I finished Christmas shopping and now I just have a few gifts to wrap and I'll be all set!


  1. I'm glad to hear you're mobile again.
    Watching the kids in their Christmas concert was always such fun. I love to watch the Sunday School Christmas programs, which is usually the only time I get to see kids perform these days. It sure does make me wish our grandsons were closer.
    You're so organized! I need to do just a little more shopping, and nothing's wrapped yet.

  2. It's good to see you back here again. Glad you are mobile again as well - back to work yet?

    And are organized. I'm not even done shopping yet...let alone having stuff wrapped.

  3. I can't believe all the kids are old enough to start having Christmas programs. Very cool though. Glad you are getting around again!
