O Christmas Tree

We had a great run with The Singing Christmas Trees 2009! It is bittersweet that it's over. It was such a fun show to do. I have some pictures of a few of our costumes. Below are the trees. If you're not familiar with the concept, look closely and you'll see people lining row by row all the way up. That is the choir members! There is also a full orchestra and full cast of dramatists and dancers. It will be aired worldwide on tv again, but I'm not sure of the dates yet. This year's theme was "Reflections" and it was based around an attic (you can see a little of the set in the picture below). It was a wonderful experience and I loved being part of it once again!

I am headed home to Atlanta in the morning. My sister's wedding is this weekend! We are all looking forward to it and I'll be sure to take lots of pictures. Tomorrow I am hosting the bachelorette party. Posting will be very inconsistent over the next couple weeks, but I will try to pop in when I can. Have a very merry Christmas!!

Christmas cheer!

A great thing about living in Orlando is there is always something fun to do. The other night I went to see The Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios and it was spectacular as always. Christmas music fills the air, the lights twinkle and dance and fake snow falls to the ground. What could be better? It certainly got me in the Christmas spirit.

Now go spread some cheer!!

"Come on, we're going for a sleigh ride"

" . . . Christmas time is here again. Come on, we're going for a sleigh ride. To spread good cheer again."

Those are some lyrics from one of the songs we dance to in The Singing Christmas Trees. I had my favorite tea below and it reminded me of it and I have been singing the song in my head all day :) We did four shows this past weekend and it went really well. We have three shows to go this upcoming weekend. I'll try to get some pictures.

Moving on . . . if you're looking for a great tea, Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride is delicious! Although not as good as the real thing, it just may keep you from eating one too many Christmas cookies :)

What's your favorite holiday drink? I also love gingerbread lattes.

Winter Wonderland

Today, I am dreaming of snowflakes. I am wishing it were chilly enough to break out the sweaters, scarves, boots and winter pea coats. Although it is still a bit too warm here in Florida for cold weather clothes, a girl can still dream. So, today I will dream I am window shopping on Fifth Avenue all bundled up. To keep my fingers warm, I would gladly wear either pair of the gloves below. The rest of my dream day would be a carriage ride in Central Park followed by my favorite show of all time - The Rockettes :) Happy December!

Lucky for me, I dance in all sorts of winter clothing in The Singing Christmas Trees. I wear everything from sweater dresses and leg warmers to winter sweaters, scarves and hats. Oh what fun - my own personal winter wonderland. Cheers to a fabulous opening night last night!

Have a cupcake . . . or two

Thank you all for your sweet comments and for keeping my family in your prayers. Everything went as well as it could and heaven has a new angel. I know my PaPa is smiling down on us. Thanks for making me feel so loved!

I am on to my next adventure now - The Singing Christmas Trees show I am dancing in. Opening night is tomorrow and we've been practicing and perfecting. It will be shown on TV worldwide so I will be sure to let you know when.

Also, my sister is getting married in just a couple weeks. I am the maid of honor and have been planning the bachelorette party. My sister wanted a sleepover theme and I decided to turn it into a cupcake decorating party as well. Here is the invitation I found - Preppy Cupcakes. Fitting, yes? :) I will share more as I continue to plan.

Thanks again for being such sweet "friends" to me. My posting and commenting has been and will be a bit sporadic for a bit until things calm down. I will be reading and will do my best to respond.
Au revoir for now - remember to "Keep Calm and Have a Cupcake!"
