Angels Sing

I know it's a terrible picture. I know. My camera sucks.

But, you might be able to get just a teensy idea of how many kids sang in the Indianapolis Children's Choir's "Angels Sing" concert tonight. Trust me, there are kids waaaaaay up there into the dark area at the top, that you can't even see.

It's breathtaking! The most beautiful Christmas music you can imagine, with these pure, lovely children's voices. Ethan's among them. I may not be religious anymore, but I honestly feel in the presence of something holy listening to Christmas music like that. It lifts my soul.

I'm so PROUD of him!!!!!

I get tears of queerness every year. This year, my mom & dad, my brother, sister-in-law, and their 2 kids, Andy's mom and her big gay husband, and Ethan's dad's mom & her husband went. So we had quite the little contingent going. And Ethan was in the first row, up in the minister's lectern area an the right. It was great! Simon and I totally waved like loons during one of the rounds of applause, and Ethan saw us, and started cracking up, and almost missed a bow. Heh. I like being a proud loon.

Finally, something Christmasey has happened up in here! Andy and the kids got the tree today (while I got my copious grey roots touched up) and now it smells all piney. Mmmmm... Tomorrow, I brave the mall.

My boy rules. He's beautiful, and kind, and sings like an angel. I LOVE this choir program. He gets so much out of it. And, best of all, he's proud of himself.

Just look at him.

He is gorgeous and that is fabulous! What's your parenting secret? I think I already know I'm only a so-so mother (topic for another website entry...weeks from now!)

Have a nice holiday and congrats on the fab children!

I bet it was a wonderful concert. Ethan looks so happy and proud of himself. Those are memories he will have for a life time.

Did you say "Andy's mom and her big gay husband"? I am pretty sure I read that. I am going to need some clarification on that. It sounds like a story that begs to be told. Maybe I missed it in the archieves?

Don't brave the malls. At least not Washington Sq or Castleton. I tried today and barely survived. Next year it is internet shopping all the way!
