Trying to hold on...

As if this year hasn't been hard enough, I lost a good friend last night. She went to sleep and never woke up. That is not supposed to happen to a young woman in her 20's, especially one with a beautiful toddler that needs her love.

This is a year of loss and my heart is breaking again, my dear friend Daphne having passed away about 3 months ago. I am just trying to make it through the next three days...I'll be with family for the holidays and darn it- I want my MOMMY! 2008 has been a crappy year, I am realllllly hoping that 2009 is an improvement.

Counting Down the Days

We're off to Grandma's house in exactly 9 days. I need to get outta here! Looking forward to all that fabulous Czech food. The diet could be in serious jeopardy. Unless my nagging, I mean loving husband keeps me in check (no pun intended). I think some long walks dreaming of our future together will be in order.

Crazy Christmas Pageant Time!

I am soooo pumped about this years Christmas performance. My kiddos are going to sing/sign Silent Night. Yes this has been done before, but I am putting a few twists into it. We will sing one verse with hands behind backs, regular lighting, piano etc. students all dressed in black. Then, we switch lighting to black lights, hands come out covered in white gloves and we sign the rest in absolute silence. In the clip it shows a choir doing it in silence and it is soooo powerful. I can just imagine how it will look with the dramatic effects of lighting and costumes! Plus, I was able to book a wonderful community member who is an ASL interpreter to get us started!

The next weeks should really fly by! I hope everyone is feeling excited and hopeful about the holidays. Remember- this is the time of year when anything can happen!
