December Happenings

We've been keeping ourselves busy in December. The first Friday of the month we traveled to Philadelphia to see a wonderful presentation of 'Peter Pan' at the Arden Theatre. The girls were a little scared at times, but now seem to have fond memories of the performance. Later this month, T will go to a workshop at the Arden, taught be the young actor who played Peter Pan.

Two weeks after seeing 'Peter Pan' on stage, we were fortunate enough to get tickets to see 'The Nutcracker' at The Acadamy of Music in Philadelphia. Thanks to my parents. The show was wonderful and held the interest of both girls. They are familiar with the story and the music from the ballet.

As Christmas draws near, I busy with shopping, decorating, sending out Christmas cards and planning for an extended family dinner. I'm happy with the progress I've made on the socks I'm knitting as a gift. I won't show them to you yet because it's a secret. Shhh.
