Originally, our plans would have had us in Asheville today seeing my sister dance the role of Sugar Plum Fairy for the Asheville Dance Conservatory in their performance of The Nutcracker but, with icy conditions in the mountains it was just not safe for us to travel that way. We were definitely sad but, we will get a DVD of the performance so we will still get to see her perform - just not in person. This change also allows us to travel to Asheville after Christmas instead and that will mean seeing many more of my siblings who will be in for Christmas.
So with a change of plans we were able to add in some fun activities we originally had to bow out of this weekend including a get-together, parties, and a piano recital.
Today, we had a wonderful lunch hosted by one of my very best friends. We are so lucky to have this sweet homeschooling family in our life! We had lots of fun exchanging Christmas gifts and having lunch together.
