Christmas concert & odds-n-ends

Emma's concert was great, as far as these things go! They played 6 songs and were done in 20 minutes...we spent more time chitchatting than the actual concert was. Perfect length of time. There are 130 musicians in the 6th grade, so there were approximately 400 people there to witness the festivities. We couldn't see Emma at all, because she is in the second to last row by the percussionists. I am amazed at how good they were.Most of these kids had never touched an instrument before this year, and they've only been playing since early October. All that practice has paid off! Here she is with her BFF Anna.
I have spent the last 3 days in a flurry of Christmas activities. Baking 2 days (the girls have been helping me so it's been fun), filling out cards, decorating the tree (Finally!), working on knit gifts and panicking because there are only 12 days left. ACK! How did that happen?
I am so not ready. But I am so ready for it to be over!
Happy Friday!!!
