Getting In the Spirit

Down here in central Alabama, the temperature has been unseasonably warm all fall. It certainly doesn't feel like Christmas and winter are approaching.

In order to get us all in a more festive mood, we've been partaking in some local Christmas festivities.

1. The Nutcracker

This year Mattie is taking pre-ballet lessons. Her dance company puts on a yearly performance of The Nutcracker, and we made it a girl's afternoon last weekend. If she sticks with dance, it will still be a few more years before she makes it into a performance.

2. S'mores and Hot Chocolate

A local hotel, affiliated with the university here in town, has hosted several S'mores and hot chocolate evenings.

3. Gingerbread Village

The same hotel also has a gingerbread village, with replicas of campus and city buildings, as part of its display.

4. RamCorps

Our church hosted a performance by this student group from the University of Mobile. It's a brass and percussion ensemble that puts on upbeat and lively performances.
