The 12 Days of Christmas

The 12 Days of Christmas, give or take.

December is always bustling and it seems there is always those twelve days in a row of parties/activities/events.  I like to call it the ‘the twelve days of Christmas.’ So… on the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me.

He, suprisingly, did great at the show with the 95 questions coming the form of a loud whisper. All the favorite Nutcracker songs were performed along with Frozen and a Sing Along. Definitely will go next year– maybe this will be OUR tradition (sorry, Uncle Matt– the green pants aren’t going anywhere anytime soon)…

The view from our balcony seats– My grandfather was a conductor and the FSU School of Music, the Kuersteiner Building, was named after in. It was neat to be able to take Raynes to hear the symphony and describe to him a man, whom neither of us ever met, who did this very thing many years ago.
