[2011: Southlands Shopping Center]
I’ll be taking the girls trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. The girls’ dentist is offering $1 per pound of candy (up to $5) they donate to the dental office and they will ship those candy out to our military in Afghanistan. I think that’s a really awesome idea! My 4-year-old was pretty excited. My 9-year-old was a bit hesitant at first but she agreed. They’ve collected a lot of candy this month and there’s no way I’ll let them eat it all.

My daughter just started the Children’s Christmas Choir this year (she skipped last year’s) and they will be singing “Silent Night” again. We were talking about how she could eventually play her violin during Christmas mass in the future and I told her I’d find an example of “Silent Night” on youtube for her to listen to. While searching on youtube, I came across another song that was simply awe. It is a cover of the song, “My Heart Will Go On” played by an extremely talented and young violinist who goes by JuNCurryAhn on youtube.
I love how he plays with so much emotions. If only it was the complete song.
AND, his cover of “Someone Like You” is just beyond beautiful. I also dig how he made himself a twin!!
Without music, what would the heart cry to?
The family just got back from our road trip to Las Vegas. I’ll be posting better photos soon. The photo above was taken with my camera phone during our drive through the mountains. We were stuck in the snow for about two hours because the roads were icy and someone probably either drove too fast and got into a slippery accident or semi’s blocked the way to chain their tires.
Husband thought these were creepy.
Woke up to snow this morning. It is still snowing this afternoon.
