Giving Thanks and on to Christmas!

We blinked and November is almost gone, nearly leaving us without time for a turkey theme background on the blog! By next week we'll be on to Christmas plans.

Hey, how about a wrap up of the last month before new news?

We were honored to be the guests musicians for an event at the Maranatha Christian Center a couple weeks ago. The people were wonderful, chili was delicious, and the show didn't produce a single blooper for our growing collection.

It did provide for some nice pictures!

The last two performances also provided more options for a couple of shorter band demo videos. The last one was too long, so that one became two shorter ones, one specific to the music, the other an introduction to the members of the band.

Where next? *Christmas!*

We only have a few opportunities lined up for our Christmas program, including an assisted living center, and we'll be crashing Pickin' on Tennyson's First Friday Fest, as well as our own home church. What a shame to have such great tunes and only one month a year in which to play them.

Mary will join the family for a 6-part rendition of "Do You Hear What I Hear?", as well as her own solo version of "Away in a Manger". The cuteness spilleth over. Michael's version of "The Grinch" is perhaps a bit too authentic, Cheryl gets "Let it Snow", the twins have some lovely duets, including "Angels We Have Heard on High", and Sean will lead "Jingle Bells".

What's next for the New Year?

We hit the ground running in January so check the schedule! I have new items I will be adding for January as I receive confirmation and details, and we are still looking for places to play on our Texas trip. There are many new songs waiting in the wings to finish arranging, hopefully adding at least a couple by the mid-January programs.

Happy Pickin' and Happy Thanksgiving!
