Merry Christmas from Sparkman High School Symphonic Bands

Last night was my son's high school Christmas Concert. It was fantastic. It's amazing how much a great band director can bring out the best in their students and we have TWO of them!!!

My son is in the larger of the two bands performing. The beginning of the video features our Winter Guard and Indoor Percussion groups. They are perfecting their shows for the upcoming Indoor Competition season and wanted to give us all a little sneak peak.

Without further is Sparkman High School's Symphonic I & II Christmas Concert.

Merry Christmas!

Where has the time gone?

It's December 10th already and only two weeks until Christmas! Guess I've just been that busy between subbing, band and life, in general.

We had a wonderful Christmas Party last night at our house. It's always great to get together with close friends. I suppose we could rename it Our Annual Chili Party because that's the main dish and everyone brings something to share. Oh, and I make my infamous rum know the one...the Bacardi recipe. I even cut back on the amount of rum in the glaze because, at full strength, it would put hair on your chest. It's always a hit and I should've sent some home with everyone because we still have 1/2 of it left.

But I have one question...

Why do we always end up hanging out in the kitchen?

Not that I mind...I just think it's interesting that it's where we all end up.

So, where do y'all hang out when you host parties?

Merry Christmas!
