Halee had her Christmas program tonight. The first number was a poem called 3 Great Kings.

Then they sang, We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

And a few other cute pictures I got tonight.

The last one we actually took yesterday.

One last thing I've been wanting to tell you about is my new TV armoire. When we were trying to figure out the floor plan, I found a picture in a magazine that I wanted to incorporate. We built this area just for this purpose. I had not been able to find exactly what I wanted that would fit into this space. Ed made these bookshelves. Ed's dad found the TV armoire at a garage sale for $25! It was the wrong color, so I stripped it and restained it and put polyurethane on it. It turned out very nice.

Some of the things I was looking for in the armoire were doors that opened and slide back on the sides and drawers to put all the movies in. It is perfect. The DVD fit in the 1st drawer, the VHS (yes we still have some of those!) fit in the 2nd drawer and the CD's in the 3 drawer. It is perfect!

Hannah has her Christmas program tomorrow. Check back soon to see how that went!

Oh, Halee looks so sweet! I really like her dress.

Thanks for sharing the armoire pictures. You are so good at finding good buys!

Oh, how cute. Thanks for sharing about the program. Cute blog background too.

I liked the pictures w/ the tree and the armoire looks fabulous!

More great pictures!! Thank you! Such a pretty dress/es(?)!

I have wanted a TV armoire for y-e-a-r-s. We've never found one that we liked, that was in our budget, that would fit, that we could get to our house, etc. Irritating....

I'm a list-checker-offer, so to think of checking off whole rooms from your To Do List sounds just glorious!! :)

Halee did great. Just wondering if the girl next to her survived when she blew that big kiss!! Looks like all the time and effort that went into your armoire was well worth it.
