The Christmas Eve services (all five of them) were good. I had a lot of villain solo bits this year. I had a pretty solo part in You Raise Me Up, and I played a verse of Silent Night as a solo.
I love Christmas.
The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light...
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end.
After Christmas dinner tonight, Mom and Dad and I were cleaning the kitchen and putting leftovers away. Dad and I sang "Bless Us All" from the Muppet Christmas Carol (one of the best songs ever), and I discovered that Dad can do a great Kermit voice!
I also had the following conversation with Dad:
Sarah: Hey Dad... I eat pretty healthily, for the most part, kind of, and I go running on a regular basis. So how come there are girls who eat junk and never work out who are so much skinnier than I am?
Dad: Well, it's genetic.
Sarah: Thanks alot; thanks for that.
Dad: You're welcome. God genetically designed you much prettier than all those skinny girls. Why are you bringing it up? Just to gloat about it? Don't gloat because you're prettier than skinnier girls.
Oh, my Dad. He's a good Dad.
Merry Christmas, everyone.
