Well – for a while there it seemed like our entire lives were centered around 1941 and hair. Our church’s annual Christmas Alive was last week, and for 7 straight days we were at the church for rehearsals or performances or…something having to do with the play. I had a part and was blessed to get to act alongside two of my very good friends, Dellaina (center) and Tami (right). And since I know next to nothing about doing my own hair, unless it has to do with a ponytail holder and some flax seed gel, I got to spend a good amount of time with my stylist sister, K, while she did my hair in victory rolls and the like.
For the most part, our performances went off beautifully, with no major mishaps other than a bit of mic trouble now and then. Honestly, I felt it was a blessing to everyone who was involved and hopefully to those who attended as well. Husband was a trooper and came to every performance, and a large portion of his family came to various performances as well. In the past two weeks, we’ve been visited by 10 of his family members. It’s been great to see them so often, especially as we’ll get to see them again in three or four days as we travel (weather permitting) to the west side of the state for Christmas.
If you came to the play, thank you so much for supporting us and we hope you enjoyed it, even though it may have seemed like odd subject matter for a Christmas play (the bombing of Pearl Harbor). If you missed it, we’ll be sure and let you know if anything else like this comes up again that we’re involved in. As for now, we’re recovering from that and a Very Doxa Christmas – our Doxa Christmas Carol sing-a-long – which was tonight. We also finished all our Christmas shopping tonight (having gone from no presents purchased to all presents purchased in just over a week – go us!)
We hope to post a few more times before Christmas itself, but don’t be surprised if we’re a bit MIA until next week – being out of town. But then we should be unveiling the first entries in our annual “Top Ten Movie” lists just in time to welcome in the New Year.
If you don’t hear from us again – have a very Merry and Blessed Christmas with your families!
