My soul magnifies the Lord! .... was the title to our concert. It went very well, we've heard many compliments about it. It is always fun to perform after working on it SO HARD for the past several months (we started on one piece back in Jan).

I almost made it through the concert. We were on the 4th to last song with my throat got one of those gagging tickles and I just couldn't get it to go away. The choir was standing, so I slowly just "oozed" down into my seat and tried my best to not breath/cough/gag until the song was done, and then made a bee-line over toes and in front of the 4 people beside me for the side door, then I had to get out into the hallway so I could cough/gag and hopefully no one hear me. I coughed all through the next song and the rest of the concert. AND MISSED MY FAVORITE PIECE! I was soooo disappointed, but my first thought was "the Lord is keeping me humble". I know I would've taken pride in a "job well done" on that song. I didn't have any solos or a part all to myself, but I really enjoyed that song and was looking forwards to singing it and singing it well! Here is an online recording of the song... it might take a while for it to load (if that link doesn't work, use this one, and click on "click here to listen" on the very top product - purple book "Magnificat"). It isn't our concert, though :) We did have an orchestra (mostly people in the church that play), so it's always fun to sing concerts with them.

Anyways, that's the report on the concert. I had MOPS this morning, and afterwards went and did a little "shopping" for hubs. Then when I got home I attacked the Christmas card list and finished them soon after supper. Yay! One thing I can cross of my mile long list. Then I wrapped as many of the gifts that I could (5) and made 2 tags with Stampin' Up. I hope to take pictures of them to post... I think they turned out pretty good for my first time!

I need to go put Daniel's jeans in the dryer and get to bed. I have to keep it movin' this week. Only 9 more days to Christmas, and I have to have alot of stuff done by then.

Well, congratulations! I'm sorry you missed part of the concert. I wish we could have been there. Anyway, I hope the cold goes away completely soon.

Glad your progress is going great with your Christmas preparations. I wish I could say the same.
