The Holidays are here!

Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas! Yeah it's been a long time since we posted but hey I'm trying here. Wish we could get some snow around here so that it could actually feel like the holidays. Oh well. Here is hoping for a white Christmas.

I am done for the semester now, and doing a little bit of seasonal help at Macy's. Which Jordan can tell you I hate. I'm back in the shoe department, but this time I am only a ringer. I will admit that it is nice because I really don't have to deal with the crazy customers but it sucks because I don't make commision. So basically I just stand behind the register for 8 hours a day while making a crappy wage. Yay for retail.

Last night we went to the Christmas Concert for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I of course go every year since my mom gets tickets for all her family. I will say however that this was probably one of the best concerts I've been too. The guest singer this year was a man by the name of Brian Stokes Mitchell. He is a broadway performer who has stared in many musicals and won many Tony Awards. He is incredible. If anyone is interested in a very talented singer I highly recommend that you check him out at Some of you might have actually heard him sing before. If you have ever seen 'The Prince of Egypt' then you have! He was the singing voice for the character Jetro. The song is 'Through Heaven's Eyes'

Through Heavens Eyes - Various Artists

My mom has a little crush on him. Pretty cute. But he was wonderful. A true entertainer.
Hope you all are getting set for Christmas! 13 days and counting!

Thank you, Trisha for sharing that with us. You are so lucky to be able to go to those concerts. I listened to his voice on his site. He IS very talented...seems very confident with what his voice can do.

When you mother performs with the Tabernacle Choir, how many practices go into one of these big performances?

In the next life, I would love to take voice lessons and develop the ability to sing beautifully and controlled like that. When I was in college, I took voice lessons for a little bit, and did ok for a little while, but I am just not developed enough, and now the voice is old and tired, so I really cannot sing like I used to. Also, when Alden was born, my voice got lower by about 4 notes. So in all honesty, I am a low alto now.

I would love to hear your mother sing.

I have always felt that they should let workers behind the register SIT on a stool or something. I don't think I could stand to "stand up" that long. I know that you are moving around, but you must be tired at the end of your day.

Hang in there, Trisha.
