Singing Christmas Tree

On Saturday, December 21st we had plans to go to the Singing Christmas Tree down at Life Center in Tacoma with my parent. This was the church that Pastor Andy had gone to work at back in September. I wasn't sure if we'd run into him, but then we saw him right when we walked in the door. 

It was so nice to see him and talk for a bit! I had never been to Life Center's HUGE and beautifully decorated for Christmas! 

He took a picture of our whole family in front of the tree! 

My Dad had bought the tickets when they very first came out. We were right down front in the center aisle. The entire row was just for our family. It was nice not having to worry about bumping into someone you don't know if you need to get up and go to the restroom. 

This year it was a whole new production called The Vinny Vindaloo's Joy of Christmas. It was like a 1950's Christmas TV special hosted by Vinny Vindaloo. Pastor Andy had warned us that they would incorporate some of the audience in the show. Michael was talking with one of the greeters out in the lobby and he said the guy kept saying his and Ella's name over and nice to meet you Michael and Ella. Michael and Ella you enjoy the show...things like that. Lo and behold...Vinny Vindaloo came right up and signed one of the programs for Michael and Ella. It was so fun! 

The production was super cute and very well done. I was worried that kids might get bored, but there was no way that was going to happen. They all really liked it. After the production we had reservations at Mama Stortini's for dinner...four of us got pizza and all of us had leftovers to eat for lunch the next day. Which was perfect since the next day was our choirs big production at church. Dad and I were both in the adult choir and Jack, Ella and Zeke were in the kids choir. Jack was a narrator for one part and Zeke played one of the wisemen. Because it was so busy and I was in the choir I didn't even think to take pictures of the kids on stage.
