We're in the spirit, the holiday spirit


We went to the kid's christmas program tonight. Its hard to see the separation of church and state at a public school that holds its christmas program in a church and sings songs about Christ. Not that I'm complaining...just interesting how things are done a little differently in my ultra-conservative, ultra-religious town. Wonder how long that will last?

After arriving 45 minutes prior to show time, I found there were no - repeat - no seats available. What is this bullsh*t about "saving" a whole row of seats? I mean, I'm no holiday show virgin so I guess I should expect this mayhem but still every year I'm surprised at the gall of these people! I was so tempted to just plop myself down on one of these "reserved" spaces and play dumb just to see the shock & awe. But I trooped upstairs and found surprising good seats in the balcony (shhhhh).

Anyways, the show was great! The kids did cute numbers about puppies, reindeer, fruitcake, and some standards. Baby girl had a little solo part in one of the numbers and she belted it out and wasn't even nervous! She did awesome. Tyler's group did a version of Silent Night with flashlights. Really cool. Osto and I were so proud of them. Definitely put me in the holiday spirit. We took pictures, but from our lovely nosebleed seats its hard to tell anyone apart!

Why or why did they have it SO early in December......I thought about it all night. Maybe next year you should take your "camp" chairs and just start a new row in the front:)

TEAM TOBIN is lovin' this new Christmas music on here! My theory about people saving seats is, if there ain't an "ass" sitting in them, then this "ass" will sit there.

Merry Christmas

We've seen this before! I'm guessing there were no drunk 20 year olds wearing ultra tight rock band t-shirts willing to fight for 50 seats he's saving?

Camp chairs are actually a great idea.

The undiscernable seperation between Church and State will continue as it has in this Country if you demand it!
