Christmas Music Makes Me Smile!

Saturday night, my husband and I took my mother-in-law to listen to the singing of The Botetourt County Chorus. They sang holiday songs.

My brother played Santa Claus, and my niece was in the children's choir. She's the one on the end, right, front row (with glasses).

My niece had big smiles during the event. Rudolph was a painted target deer (see where he has been shot?).

Brent Watts, the weatherman on Channel 7, emceed the event. He did a good job.

My niece again. Isn't she adorable? She just started wearing glasses.

Ol' Santa, aka my brother, had a couple solos. I was surprised as he had told me he was playing Santa but did not mention he would be singing.

He really belted out the songs! He was a good Santa.

My father sings in the choir. He had a solo singing "Blue Christmas" and he played his guitar.

When the children's choir sang, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," my sister-in-law came out on the stage in her jammies. She danced around with Santy.

And then they kissed!


  1. oh. em. gee!! There's only one Santa that I will kiss.... in my jammies.


  2. Great pictures, Anita. Your niece is adorable.

    I love that Rudolph was a target deer! Hope being shot doesn't keep him from his important Christmas Eve duties! :-)

  3. Oh I love those pictures! Especially the kiss at the end. There's nothing quite like a Christmas performance like that to get you in the spirit!

  4. Sounds like a wonderful program! Your neice is adorable. Love that kiss at the end.

  5. You come from a musical family! Your father reminds me a little of my Pop-Pop. He played many instruments but mostly the banjo. When my mother was a kid, she played the accordian and they had a little show going. They were on TV and they'd go to hospitals and clubs to perform. One of their favorite songs was "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus." But one day they went to an "orphanage." My mother told me that Pop-Pop had to explain to her that the couldn't do that song this time because these children didn't have a mommy. I always loved that story because it showed how thoughtful my Pop-Pop was about other people.
