December like the rest of this year has gone by so fast that I almost missed it. I did however capture a few special moments during the month.
First was Sissy and Bubba's Winter music concerts. Sissy plays both in orchestra and in band as well as singing in the chorus. In their school band and orchestra are only open to 3-5 grade so Bubba who is in second grade was only had a chorus performance.
Sissy and her best friend both play violin and are in the center of the above photo. Everyone calls them twins and they do look a lot alike. Here is a cropped version of the above photo. It is not the best but easier to see why they are referred to as twins by their classmates.
In band Sissy is a percussionist and for this concert she got to play the snare drum which she was very happy about.
I tried to get a nice shot of her in the chorus performance but I definitely wasn't prepared for the fact that both her and her 'twin' moved the entire time. They held hands and even when everyone else was standing still the two girls swayed to the music swinging their joined hands. It was really cute but made for fuzzy photos.
Bubba was much easier to get a nice shot of. He is the little boy in the second row from the bottom wearing the deep blue shirt, just behind and to the right of the boy who is smacking his own forehead. Yes that is what he is doing, the poor boy goofed and sang out before it was time to start singing. I felt so bad for him as he didn't sing the rest of the performance.
The concerts all went well and were very cute.
Next came Christmas
We had a quiet but nice Christmas.
The kids were happy with their presents.
Miss. M was happy with the fuzzy Cheshire Cat sock's the kids got her.
Mrs. G was happy with the 'old lady' scarf the kids got her.
Mr. G was
happy amused with the 'connect the dot' activity book the kids got him. His job requires mapping (connecting dots) so we tease him that he is just a glorified dot connector.
With a little over a day left until the new year I am excitedly anticipating a number of changes in my life and hopefully they will all lead to a rewarding year.
How about you, are you looking forward to 2015?
