We are almost complete with the round of holiday recitals and concerts. Hero and Allegra played at the Festival of Trees and they and Ian played at the piano studio Christmas recital (quite frankly I don't know how they found the time to work on their pieces with all the Nutcracker rehearsals). Hero played jazzy versions of Deck The Halls and Away in a Manger, Allegra played Up on the Housetop and Jingle Bells and Ian played Away in a Manger (he did awesome, although I was super-nervous because you just never know with him). I try not to imagine how many hours of practice I'll be supervising once I have FIVE kids in music lessons, yikes!! Lord grant me patience... On Friday is my violin studio recital (Hero's playing) so that's the last holiday music hurdle to clear LOL.
