Busy Weekend

We had a busy first weekend of December. Sunday was our community's Christmas party and it was a caroling party/competition. The scary part of it was that our group was picked to do a caroling number. I am not a singer at all but DH is. I helped with the minor choreography to jazz up the medley. We sang a medley of Sleigh Ride, Winter Wonderland, Mamacita, Frosty the Snowman, Jingle Bell Rock and Pasko na Naman to end it. We did an acceptable job, I think but nowhere near competition level. We weren't there to compete with the harmonies and voicing of the other groups. We came to perform for family. Hehehe. You could tell we did not know what we were doing. We didn't even put a mike in front of the group so the guitar kind of drowned our voices. We took it in good fun though.

We did have fun during practices - in all of our 2 practices! LOL! Yes, a total of 2 with the last one on Saturday morning, the day before the presentation. LOL! Cutting it close, eh. It was done at our friend's house and I made a lovely discovery that is not connected in any way to singing. My friend has a pomelo tree in her backyard!! Yumm!!! She harvested several fruits for us. Mmmmm...love it! Is pomelo the same as grapefruit in that it's said to be natural fat burners, you think?

Anyway, the kids had a presentation too. They sang Jingle Bells and Pasko na Naman. Here are pics of DS and DD1 during their part of the program.
