Friday from School

It's been a long time since I shared something about school!! Sorry - it really does occupy the majority of my time, not to mention energy! We are up to our eyeballs in concert practice and excitement. Just a few more practices before Thursday night's performance and it's looking pretty good. Enthusiasm is definitely high and the kids love the program.

This giant tree stands in our foyer as a greeting to everyone.
It really does look beautiful, especially in the evening when it's getting dark outside and you come up the street to the school. Too bad we are at the end of town and very few cars drive by.

The front display case has a favorite Christmas decoration in it from every staff member and this is mine. I got these figures in a gift exchange with my family many years ago and they usually reside on the mantel of our fireplace at home. They will return there but for now they are my contribution to our display. It's fun to see the variety and hear the stories to go with each piece!
And now, I'm off to do a little more shopping and lots of house stuff. Have a lovely weekend, All!


  1. What a lovely tree. I could sit all day and just stare at it. Really love your nativity scene Crystal - it is gorgeous. Great contribution. Have fun at the concert.

  2. What a beautiful tree. I love your nativity scene - I can see why its your favourite - it is stunning. When my decorations come out at Christmastime I really enjoy unpacking my Nativity Scene the most and I usually do that first, because then it really feels like Christmas to me. Hope the concert was a good one!

  3. The tree looks gorgeous! I love that Nativity Scene - it's beautiful!

  4. That is a gorgeous tree! And I love the decorations that you displayed at your school. Jim and I are looking for a nativity scene right now - we still don't have one.
