FHS Chorale

My brother is in this choir, not that you can see him! But here is a small sampling of what they sound like. This was (luckily) a small gathering of just a friends and family and I was thrilled to be invited to go and see him perform with his group.

I miss my brother lots since our falling out, such as it was, and his subsequent adoption and name change, but lets not go there. That he invited us was enough for me to be thrilled. And, amazingly enough, I even managed not to cry! Now that's a miracle!

The Holidays are here!

Finally, after waiting for them for soooo long, they are right. here. now.


Alex is, of course, excited. But who wouldn't be at the ripe old age of 11? There are presents wrapped and waiting, stocking stuffers bought and ready to be stuffed into those lovely stockings. Holiday goodies made, and ate, and made again only to be devoured again. Parties here and there and so on and so on...

I promise to blog more frequently as I have more time, but for now, I'm having too much fun with life to have time to tell the world about it!

And this is my gramma's christmas tree, done by me (cause noone else is willing to do it worth a damn, but thats a whole 'nother story!):


Christmas parade pics for this year. It also has some pics of family members as well. And its only 187 pics long too! Damn, what an improvement for me! I hope you enjoy this slice of small town life.
