Last Friday night, a small group of Advanced Chorus alumni from GHS assembled for our annual Christmas carolling outing. We spent the evening carolling to some of our favorite teachers. It was great catching up with some great friends. Here is a photo taken at Mrs. Clanton's house.
Christmas was still a little bit sad around our house as our family lost Granny right around this time last year. We still managed to have a wonderful day relaxing, eating entirely too much, and unwrapping tons of presents. In years past, it seems that the presents made me most happy on Christmas day. This year especially, I noticed that I felt differently. I certainly appreciate and enjoy the gifts, but as I received more and more text messages and emails from friends and family containing kind words and holiday greetings, I came to realize that these things mean much more than anything bought from a store. We managed to get a few "good" family photos in our annual Christmas day photo shoot.
Yes, this is really my family...
