Good Morning

It is snowing (again) and has been snowing most of the night it appears.

They closed the Portland Community College and with it the Performing Arts Center.

Both Nutcracker performances are canceled for today :(

At least we got to see it last night (Opening Night).

I can't believe the show came together with only one rehearsal at the theater. The kids did an amazing job.

Earlier in the week I was so dreading going in to do it. It was so cold and snowy, I just wanted to stay home and bake cookies!

But once we were there on Thursday and I saw it come together, I remembered why we love doing this show.

It was great!

And now several hundred people are very disappointed. If the snow and ice don't stop today there is a good chance tomorrow will be canceled too and that means two more shows and several hundred more people won't be able to see how hard their kids (grandkids, nieces, nephews, etc...) have worked.

This will provide opportunity for character development for sure but it's still sad.

I didn't bring my camera with me on Thursday or Friday but here is a picture of the girls last year during rehearsal...

They are both soldiers this year and hopefully we'll have pictures from the photographer at the theater soon.

I also wanted to let you know there is another Midnight Chat video coming later today. I'm waiting for the embedding code.

There is a video called The Star of Bethlehem I make reference to. It will be my very first Giveaway here on Mishmash so stayed tuned for that.

I hope you all have a blessed day.

I should have remembered to tell you to bring the camera! If we will end up doing it on Sunday remember to bring it- maybe we can get a picture of the pixie horse (giggle giggle)- if anything!
