Did someone say Christmas music???

This past weekend Amanda was asked to put her amazing musical talents to good use.

On Friday night she was asked to play her saxophone at the Christmas party for our old Ward. We went online to get some sheet music and she chose "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas". When we got to the church building, she about had a heart attack when she saw how many cars were there! Then we walked into the cultural hall and it was PACKED! There were about 300 people there! When her time came, though, she got up on the stage and absolutely FLOORED everyone there. She did an AMAZING job! I wish I would've had my camera there...or better yet - Amanda's that I could have recorded it to put on here. But, I forgot it! (Go figure!)

Then on Sunday, (in Sacrament Meeting) the Young Men and Young Women in our Ward sang "Far, Far Away on Judea's Plains", and Amanda played part of the song on her flute. Once again, everyone LOVED listening to her play. She does such a great job playing her instruments. I am so proud of her! She has such an amazing talent!

Thanks again for playing for me... In my defense... I didn't know so many people would show up! But Amanda did great! Plus, she looked so calm up there. Great job! Thanks!

Great job Amanda! Nobody asked me to play my cello this year. Boo hoo. That's cuz no one knows I play! I guess I'll have to educate them. It's so fun playing for others. you three have an awesome Christmas! And come visit us! ;-)
