Lots of practice today, lots of costuming and a bit of stress thrown in to boot. But Madison doesn't look bothered at all! It's the last day of November, and we've spent the day scrambling to get things together at the last minute for a big performance at the church Sunday. Things are coming together, but it's all been a stressful ride - especially for Mommy.
It's not as stressful as being the goat though: this poor guy went up in Sweden!
Imagine knowing that somewhere in dark corners, nefarious people are planning and conniving to burn you down. This poor goat has got to be stressed! The opening weekend celebration is this weekend in Gävle, and hopefully the large goat will make it a little longer than just two days. Last year, things weren't so happy for the goat, who was set ablaze rather quickly one night.
It looks cold there, doesn't it? The weather here has been downright chilly at night, just about sub-freezing. However, there's been absolutely no precipitation the last few weeks. Lake Lanier looks pitiful, the water level so incredibly low, which is sad again.
Bright spots: we've purchased some tickets to a ballet upcoming. Not "The Nutcracker," but rather "Babes in Toyland." We'll take Madison to that, together as a family, and have some fun there. We'll obviously want to watch the movie versions first. It'll be a fun holiday season - we just have to survive this weekend first!
