Busy, Busy, Busy

Well from the lack of comments on my last whiny post I will concede that the holidays are extremely busy for EVERYONE!! I did however pick a winner and it is........ drum roll please.......................................................................
Melanie Hartzell
Melanie you are the winner of a custom made banner of your choice!! so let me know what kind of banner and if you have a color preference and I will get to work!!
We have also been very busy between violin concerts and dance things we haven't had a night to catch up on our tivo'd shows. We are like 3 weeks behind on Heroes, so don't tell me what is going on because I want to be surprised! This past weekend we got to go up to St. George where Samantha's violin group "Desert Strings" performed a concert with the NW Children's Choir at the St. George Tabernacle. It was wonderful, the kids sounded beautiful and the ambiance was breathtaking. They played a mixture of Christmas songs and some Irish Fiddling music. I wish you all could have been there. I would put the video on here but it just doesn't do it justice

Saturday we headed out to Boulder city where Sam was dancing in the Boulder City Parade of Lights. She was darling but somehow I didn't end up with any pictures of here in her snowman costume. I did however get some cute shots of the kids while we waited for the parade to start!!

I hope you all are taking time to enjoy this holiday season. We are trying to have a good attitude as we shuffle kids from recital to field trips, and so on but It truly is the best season of all.
Up Next on our agenda..
Filed trip with Colby to Opportunity Village tomorrow
Sam performing at opportunity village, later that evening
Brett Piano Recital on Saturday
Sam Violin concert with Mormon Youth Symphony on Sunday and Monday Nights
Sam dancing at the galleria mall on Wednesday

I'm so excited!!! I don't even know what to choose. Should I get something for an upcoming holiday like Valentines? Any ideas?

The performances look wonderful. You've got such talented kids.

Love all the cute pictures of the kids! I must admit I am very jealous that Melanie won! I was so hoping to see my name!

Great photos:)
I loved the photo in the tabernacle...I can only imagine how wonderful they sounded. I love violins and can't believe I don't even have one player. I might have to work on that:)

Okay, we've decided! (Marianne had to help me make up my mind). We would love a birthday banner! I'm not picky about colors, but something that could be used for a boy or a girl would be great. Marianne says to tell you that lime green is her favorite color.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Hey love, The place I took Jens pictures is a gated community in henderson off warm springs called the fountains. She just happened to have a friend who lives in there and was able to tell the security guard we were coming. It was a FABULOUS place but unfortunately unless you know someone who lives there and lets you in, you can't get in, and that night it was so windy, that all the leaves are now on the ground! We lucked out though. Sorry, I wish I had better news. Unfortunately, I won't get to shoot in there again either!
