It's been a fun month so far. Larry and I have been to quite a few fun things the first part of this month so far. On December 3rd we went into the Utah Symphony at Abravanell Hall in Salt Lake City. Larry signed us up to go to about 4 over the next few months. The one we went to on the 3rd had a few different numbers. The first one we listened to was Beethoven's Leonore Overture No. 3, op. 72b. Then there was Saint-Saens Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor with a guest celloist. It was beautiful and fun. The last one was a very fun one, not your usual classical number. It was by Charles Ives from Connecticut and he put in a lot of Americana hidden throughout the song. There were songs like Colmbia, the Gem of the Ocean and Turkey in the Straw and a few other patriotic songs also woven into it. A very enjoyable evening. Thanks Sweetheart for thinking of the symphony. Then the very next Monday, December 6th we had tickets to see "White Christmas" up at Pioneer Theater. It was one of our season plays for this year. I was so excited to go up and see it because White Christmas is one of my all time favorite Christmas movies and I watch it every year. The play was great! They changed things up a bit on it and some of the details were a little different, but it was so enjoyable. They even added a few new songs to the play and also took some out. Some of the old songs were sung in a few different places also. Anyway.. we loved it!! It's been a good start to the Christmas season especially doing things with my Sweetheart!! Love you Babe!
Thought it would be fun to keep a little journal this way, and I have to get up to speed with my nieces who are blogging. I'm a 4th grade teacher and have enjoyed teaching for 29 years. I'm married to the most wonderful man and have a step family that I love and have become just as much mine as they are Larry's. We have 4 children and 6 terrific grandchildren and there will be 7 in March. By the way...the baby with me in the picture is my beautiful niece Cortni LaDawn. She has my middle name.
