i’m leaving right now for nashville and a noon flight to new york….it’s going to be quite a festive occasion in the Big City:  Melissa’s birthday is tomorrow and we’ll be celebrating at the Mandy Patinkin/Patti Lupone performance–premium seats via eric jose’, thank-you;  wednesday is emma’s school christmas program in the morning, radio city music hall christmas spectacular featuring the rockettes at five.   then i’ll fly back home thursday morning in time for the choir rehearsal and the final push through the season.

here’s some shots of last week:

3 kids at school baked me a scrumptious red velvet cake…it was delicious and even better as the thought and work that went into it is unusual in this age group….
