Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends!  This is a picture of Colt and DiDi in full costume and makeup from their recent Nutcracker show.  Colt played a father (with two wives and six kids) and Di was a flower maiden, soldier, marzipan and arabian.  Nutcraker has become a tradition for our family, this is Colt's second and Di's 4th.  Colt even agreed to have his long hair pulled into a ponytail for the role. 
And here is Colt posing after a concert with his new favorite instrument.  He joined our local string orchestra this past fall and has really enjoyed performing with them. Their Christmas performance was wonderful. 
I have dinner guests at six so I'd better get busy.  Have a wonderful holiday and I'll be back after the New Year.


  1. Merry Christmas to you too Mary! Hope 2011 is a wonderful year for you all :) I don't often comment these days (really need to rectify that!), but wanted to make sure I left one now to tell that I have enjoyed reading your blog this year and look forward to new blog posts in 2011 :)

  2. Mary, Ramona called to let me know that you had updated your blog and to comment on the kids. They have grown so much since we've seen them. I know you are so proud of them. I wish a blessed and joyous new year for you and your family. Hugs, Janet
