Ice Storm

The weather has been very mild this week. On Christmas Day, we were outside in long sleeve t-shirts.  Some of us were outside without shoes.

Today, we had an ice storm.  The weather alternated between rain and ice, but mostly dreary and chilly. I still enjoyed walking around, admiring the way the ice hung on everything.

Christmas Concert New Horizons Band

DaddyDaddy plays french horn in the New Horizons Band.  This weekend they had their traditional Christmas concert. It was fun listening to some traditional Christmas songs and hearing some new arrangements.  The band did a very good job. I think it was the best concert they have done that I have been to.

NutcrackerToday we went to see the Nutcracker at the Morris Performing Arts Center.  We were able to take my nephew David, and a friend, Evie, with us this year. It was a good show even though Adrian said “it was just like last year!”

After the show, we walked down the street and enjoyed a few decorations.

ChristmasballThen we went to the South Bend Chocolate Company Factory and had lunch.  We tried caramelized molasses candy called Seafoam.  Of course, we did not leave before we had picked out some candy to take home.

It was a wonderful day of school!
