One thing we learned from this...make sure to have a full dress rehearsal a week in advance. We thought we had matching shirts...but found out the hard way that two daughters no longer had their shirts! After a quick scramble, we found four matching shirts in Anna and Maggie's closet and made do. Thank you Walmart for your clearance rack!
Our family is finished with Christmas shopping except for one small gift. The sewing machines are humming, the fireplace is roaring, and the spirits are warming. What a wonderful time of year.
