I love Christmas! It is probably my favorite holiday because of the huge build up of holiday spirit everyone gets into! Ally, John, Adam, and I went to see the BYU-Idaho Christmas Concert at the new BYU-I Center and it was amazing. It had the University choir and band play all sorts of beautiful Christmas tunes. Then as a guest performer, Brian Stokes Mitchell sang. His voice gave us all goosebumps, it was so amazing. He was a broadway singer and sang in the Prince of Egypt. He gave his own rendition of Christmas songs and it was wonderful. Perfect start of our Christmas countdown for sure 🙂
My Mom also made me the most adorable advent calendar that counts down the days of Christmas with an activity. It is so fun. One was to learn a new Christmas song on an instrument, and Adam and I ended up singing and playing guitar for a couple hours one night. It really does get us in the holiday spirit.
As we continue our Christmas countdown, I hope we all remember those who are missing their loved ones at this time, I think love and service would be the most comforting thing we can give, it is what the Lord would want 🙂
Who else is doing a countdown calendar? Any cool ideas you guys are doing??
These are our Bits O’ Bertoch.
P.S. I have been doing some renovations on my site. All of the photography pages under the photography tab are now seen more as thumbnails that can be clicked on. It makes scrolling down less of a hassle. In fact, I just added a new photo that Adam did in the unedited photos section.
I also added an additional page under places called Temples. Check it out 🙂
