Singin' and Snowin'

We had CRAZY weather here today.
It snowed overnight and into this morning
causing chaos throughout the city.
My littlest girl, my Mom and I had plans
to go downtown today.
We weren't sure we should with the amount of 
snow out there.
We did anyway.
It got better as the day went on so yay!
We didn't have to change our plans.

We went to see my old Christmas choir
that I used to sing with.
When I had a job.

I sang with this choir for 10 years,
each October we would start rehearsing, 
and then we would perform for an hour
everyday for 1 week in December 
in our office building downtown.
It also expanded to performances
at a local park here.
And then last year, we and 2 other downtown choirs
got together to perform at a 
beautiful church downtown.
The finale is all 3 choirs singing the
Hallelujah chorus together.

It brings me to tears.
It's so amazing!
Because I'm not working right now 
I had to skip the choir this year.
But that meant I got to go watch!
It was magical.

This is a video that circulated last year and I just love it.
It's a Hallelujah chorus flash mob at a food court!

The end gives me goosebumps, they sound so good!

Perfect day for Christmas music since it looks like 
a Winter Wonderland out there.
My girls are off school for the next couple of days.
I am so looking forward to hanging out
at home with them.

dropping them off at Grandma and Grandpa's so I can
do some Christmas shopping.
We'll see!

WOW!!!! Truly spectacular Sheri! Thanks for sharing this. I've got to share this with some people. If it's cold here in new orleans, I know you are freezing there. Enjoy this time! Everything happens for a reason. That is what I always say. Sending wishes that the weather lets up for you. ((HUG))
