More on Singing ChurchWomen

This past Tuesday the Singing Churchwomen had a concert at FBC. It was a great concert. It was a lot of work having them at our church, but it is always fun. Tuesday morning Larry commented on the fact that it won't be so tiring because we wouldn't be getting home real late. That is true, but it is much harder getting ready for the concert at our church than it is to drive to a concert and then get home late. But it is worth it. It is fun being the host-church.

I got to substitute in handbells, playing the largest bells for the first time. It was fun, but they are so heavy I wore blisters on my hand after the first practice. Then someone told me to wear double gloves, which I knew but didn't think about.

I have been in Singing Churchwomen about 18 years I think. I just love it.

Larry took some pictures at the concert. I don't like to have my picture taken, but I'm going to post a couple of them anyway. One reason to post them is because I don't have that many pictures to post. Another reason is because our dresses are so sparkley and pretty. And another reason is because if you ever wondered what my mother looks like - now you can know. I can't believe how much I look like her. If I didn't know better, I 'd think she was at the concert!

My, Janice, what big bells you have!

Isn't it scary/inevitable when you look in the mirror and wonder how she snuck into your house and realize it's YOU! Ha!

Wish I could have been there. I'm sure it was great! The dresses are rather sparkly and that is one HUGE bell! You are not kidding about your mother. Almost scary!
