Christmas is coming right on the heels of Thanksgiving. All the sites are decorated now, and I got to wave at a horse drawn wagon passing by. It's all decked out for Christmas, too.
I am rehearsing the live nativity most nights after Rendezvous. Here is the angel choir composed of single senior sisters. The Christmas Walk is this Friday, Dec 4, and we will all be in costume that night. A lot of Christmas activities are happening, so it will be a busy week.
I got to work in the Seventies Hall on Thanksgiving day. Pres & Sis Gibbons brought fudge around to all of us, which made us feel loved and special.

Here's the initial practice for the live nativity. It will look awesome with the set and costumes. The single senior sisters (including me) get to be the Angel choir, which I am directing. We're not in this picture.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!! I love you!
I got to help on the setup and played piano background music for 2 hours during the dinner. It was lots of fun. We had about 120 people. I got a picture before they came, but none during the dinner because I was playing.

I also accompanied another number and played "Chanson" on my flute while they showed slides of Sis Cox's paintings. It all went really well and everyone loved it, especially the flute solo. But it's also a relief to have all the practices over!

In this picture I am standing in front of my house. Hiram's property is just beyond the last greenish tree on the left where you can see a tiny car.

I keep remembering what my mother tells me in hard times: The Lord is building a castle out of your little cottage. It can't all be beautiful without knocking down the old structure first. So I am learning patience and humility while my castle is being built!
