The BEST concert EVER and other stuff

Saturday the cows came home!

The poor beasts are covered in burrs. Guess that is what comes with running in wide open spaces. The Hubby is happy to have his babies home again. After getting the house work done and the weeks grocery shopping we ended up going to the local watering hole with some friends to see the costume contest.

Came home and played singing star. We thought it sounded pretty good until we were done and went into the kitchen to see the Hubby's had their ears stuffed with napkin wads - No joke.

Sunday was spent watching football on the couch with a wonderful almost three hour nap.

When I got home from work yesterday everyone was waiting for me to head out to the school for Colton and Chyann's Fall concert.

Chyann's middle school band played three songs and sounded great. The band gained a bunch of new performers and are 40+ strong now! That's huge for being only two grades combined. Course her class is the biggest in school history - almost 90 kids.

The High school choir played and did some neat stuff. This is Colton's first year in choir and he is having fun with it.

I recorded most of the music with the little camcorder, but only had half a tape available so I put some stuff on the SD card. All Chyann's stuff was on the camcorder, otherwise I'd have posted some of her music too.

The video isn't the best, but you get the idea.

Can you guess what song this is?

The kids did several skits and played tons of music from Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond, two KISS tunes of course, Lady Gaga, Dragonforce, Green Day, Boston and a few others.

It was so fantastic they got a standing ovation!!!

NEVER has that happened in the eight years we've been going to the concerts!

That's how wonderful it was!

Blustery, cold winter like temps have moved in. They say the winds will be sustained about 40 knots and gusting up to 60! Winter here we come!

Wow, I'm totally impressed. All the years I attended the choir/band concerts did anyone get a standing ovation, so it must have been really good.

Who's the babe in the long brown hair? Oops, is that Colton? Really? LOL!!!!

That's great! I like it that they did some fun songs. I always enjoyed doing that when I was in band. Colton really dressed up for the part, wow!
