Christmas overload

This is the seventh year we've had children in a Christmas show, either in regional theatre or at an amusement park, and sometimes both.  Between theater and The King's Strings, we are those people who start singing and practicing Christmas carols in October.  Ya just gotta do what ya just gotta do.
Fooling around in the green room before a show.

One elf had a lot of explaining to do about that broken arm. He just told folks that he hurt it in while making toys in Santa's workshop.
It appears as if that whole Global Warming thing has definitely hit and the elves are now wearing sleeveless dresses.

But yesterday was the last show and tonight is our last concert.

We're just about reading to relax and get ready for Christmas.

I do feel like we've done a better job of preparing ourselves for Christmas than in past years.  With a baby in the house we've had to say no to a lot of extras.  We had fewer December concerts than in past years.  We've also been using the Advent Jesse Tree to remind ourselves why a Savior had to come and how everything in the Old Testament points to Jesus.  It's been good for all of us.
