  1. The pictures are so pretty. I sure wish that we could have been there. Your dresses are beautiful and we already know how beautiful you must have played and sang.
    We are already homesick and this being Christmas only serves to make it worse.
    Love having your blog, we can catch a bit of our friends back home almost any time.
    Your entire family is such a blessing to so many people, including us.
    Miss you all and love you all.
    Merry Christmas,
    Ariana, Tryston and Sharyn
