There is plenty of horse play that goes on here. Allegra is deep in the middle of it.
Allegra has been with us since September and has been such a help with the kids. They love her and will so miss her when she goes home for Christmas this coming weekend. I feel blessed with this family of mine. All of them are good people doing things that are productive and positive. For the most part. Allegra, our lovely redhead, will soon be gone. She will be so missed!
My singing group, the Treble Clef Singers, are in the midst of our Christmas concert, repeated several times a day for two weeks. Wow. It is exhausting. But it has been good for me; I've overcome much of my fear of singing in front of people. Of course the folks in convalescent homes are appreciative no matter how we sing. But I think we sound pretty good! Our group still loves Layne. He sings a solo in every one of our concert series. He's good too! Here's our group at one of our performances.
Time moves quickly on. Our grandchildren are growing up and starting families of their own. Sometimes I can't believe that I could be a seventy-something...already. Our grandson Scott proposed to his girlfriend over Thanksgiving and they plan to marry this coming spring. Along with grandson James and granddaughter Rayne. Wow. Imagine the possibilities for great-grandchildren they will bring. How could this have happened so soon? Here's Scott and his Jessica. Jessica. She will be our third Jessica in the immediate family. Branching out, she becomes the fifth!
