The 12 Days of Christmas: Day 5...A Christmas Concert ♥

Hello Everyone!
Welcome back to the 12 Days of Christmas.  I can't believe we are under a week away.  This time next week it will all be over and I will be experiencing my favorite week of the year!  That peaceful bliss that IS the week between Christmas and New Years! But let's not get ahead of ourselves.  I want to savor each day leading up to Christmas Eve.  Which leads me to tonight and day 5 of my 12 days of Christmas series....
Each year during the week before Christmas, John's school presents a Christmas concert.  The school choir and church choir sing hymns, the band preforms, and each grade sings a Christmas song.  The music director always does a wonderful job of putting this together.  Rob and I attended, as well as my parents and Rob's parents. 
(I always tell John how lucky he is to have both sets of grandparents with him ♥)
As some of you already know, John plays drums in the school band.  This is his second year. 
He loves it! 
As you can tell by the expression on his face he takes his drumming very seriously! ♥
The band played three songs tonight.  My favorite was We Wish You a Merry Christmas! 
It's a wonderful evening to see all the kids preform and also a nice opportunity for us parents to wish friends and teachers a Merry Christmas. 
John's good friend Sean is also in the band.  Here they are together with their sticks after the show!
John's 5th grade class sang Angels We Have Heard on High and the evening ended with all of us singing Silent Night. 
It's night's like this, filled with prayer and beautiful music, that remind me of the true meaning of Christmas.  Seeing it through the children's eyes reminds me how I used to feel at that age.  I was over the moon excited every year!  I never want to forget that feeling of wonderment.
Thank you for joining me tonight! I'll be back tomorrow with day 6.  Did you pop over to Billie Jo's blog and Madison's blog yet? Please do! We are counting the day up to Christmas together! ♥


  1. He looks so handsome!! I miss the days when my kids were in school and had Christmas concerts like this! Those are some of my fondest holiday memories!

  2. There is something sooo special about a band playing Christmas music. I just love it!!! <3

  3. Love that John is in the school band and continues to enjoy playing the drums. Christmas concerts are so special. You're lucky that John's school puts one on every year. Unfortunately, Annabel's school doesn't always put on a Christmas concert. They did't do one this year. :(

  4. Darling children's concert. I remember these wonderful times when my children were growing up. It really gets one in the spirit. ♥

  5. Yay John!!!
    What a wonderful way to get into the spirit.
    I am loving your posts, my friend.
    It's almost here!!!!!

  6. How sweet! I love seeing Christmas through my kids eyes, too. It really changes my perspective. :)
