I had the privelegde of singing in the Christmas Cantata this year. The performance was on Saturday night. It went really well...and was a lot of fun to be a part of. We sang some pretty jazzed up versions of normal Christmas songs, as well as For Unto Us (Handel's Messiah), When Love Came Down (Point of Grace), and of course, the Hallelujah Chorus.
As you can see, Dan got to dress like a shepherd for one of the readings in between songs. He spoke about what it was like to see the Saviour at His birth.
Every December we have a Christmas banquet here for the students. Everyone gets decked out which is not something i personally look forward to, but hey it was fun I guess. I just love the feeling I get when I put on my normal clothes again and can finally breathe again.
This picture was taken after the banquet in Kyle and Kassy's house. L-R is Ivan and Jessica, Kassy and Kyle, and Dan and I.

Yesterday we decorated our house for Christmas. Now all I want to do is stay in our house and turn on the Christmas music, plug in all the little white lights, light the candles, and sit in the chair and read. :) Plus the fact that it's butt freezing cold outside (it's been in the -20's this week).
Since we couldn't be with family during Thanksgiving, we had a bunch of our friends over and all shared dinner together! We each were responsible for a part of the meal and it was DELICIOUS! On the picture is: Ivan and Jessica, Kyle & Kassy, Bryan & Lynda, Lindsay, Amanda and their cute little son Liam, and Dan and I. They are our family away from home.
