Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

The Nutcracker and Piano Recital

We had a full and fun day on Saturday.  Cb's started us off with a magnificent performance of "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies" at her Christmas piano recital.  I am always so impressed with her confidence in performing.  I thinks it's great and I hope she keeps it as she matures.  I always get so nervous performing solos in front of people, which is why I play in a large group of musicians where no one can hear me.:)  Hopefully, she takes after her dad in that area.  He is a great performer and musician and I can see her following in his footsteps.

From there, we went to a lovely lunch in Old Town where we enjoyed hot dogs, burgers, fries and milkshakes.  Yum!  Once home, it was time for Cb's, F and I to head out to watch The Nutcracker.  B and I take turns taking them, so it was my turn this year.  This was also F's first year going.  They both enjoyed the performance.  Cb's can follow along with the story pretty well, so she gets what's going on, for the most part.  F liked the music the most.  He was humming along with the pieces he knew and he was glued to looking down on the pit orchestra during the breaks.  Actually, he was watching one musician who was playing a game on his Nintendo DS.  Still, he liked the music too.
