|We had sub-freezing temps here, which made the mid-West|
laugh at us ("You think that's COLD?!!") but is not
something we warm valley Californians are used to. Ice!
|This game (San Francisco vs. Seattle) was INTENSE.|
|Life-long silly habit during Niner games (when we're on |
offense). Paid off. We beat those dirty Seahawks!
|Styrofoam Snowman Head on a Jar.|
|Artsy-fartsy shot of Mom's tree.|
|When I got home from choir, Millie let me know in no|
uncertain terms that I was not to go anywhere else until
she got proper cuddles.
|Starting to feel a little stressed by the busyness of my week,|
I looked down and saw that my glove was trying to tell
me something. Ha.
|The design on the front of the concert program.|
|This was not a meeting, it was a ruse to honor our school|
nurse and head custodian, both retiring this month. My
kids sang a couple of carols.
|Decorations at Fusion (where I teach piano lessons).|
|On Wednesday, my kids set up a gigantic tree in my|
classroom. On Thursday it went up on the stage.
|They were happy to decorate it, leaving me to get my end|
of things done.
|Winter Ball was this weekend.|
|Photocopying 300 concert programs.|
|I had an extra page that needed filling, so I put pics of the|
band and choir.
|Posing with the ginormous tree in my classroom. My job|
is never dull.
|People need to stop giving me chocolate. Seriously.|
|Ran to Raley's for some stuff and found designer|
|Dear Theater Teacher, Santa threw up on your stage today.|
Don't worry, we'll clean it up. Sincerely, Choir Teacher.
|The sun sets on a suburban high school.|
|Moon over the theater.|
|The tree, finally out of my room and onto the stage.|
|In the lobby.|
|Obligatory pre-concert selfie in my office.|
|We did some formal choir pics on Friday, and I forgot my|
nice clothes. So I put a choir dress on over my skinny
jeans and boots. Fashion statement!
|After two nights of concerts, my office looked like a florist|
shop. Those kids!!
|Taken in downtown Sacramento from my car, stopped at|
a red light.
|Waiting to start rehearsal. Don was working with the|
orchestra. Impossible to show just how gorgeous Memorial
Auditorium looked with the lights and decorations.
|Rehearsing our opening--200 singers lined around the |
balcony with glow sticks before processing down stairs
and up to the risers on stage. Don knows how to impress.
