Behind The Music: First Noel

Did I say the next Christmas tune would be performed by Kevin, Nick and Matt? Oops! I got my dates mixed up! This next one is Shelley (on piano) and Ashley and Lauren singing. The song is “First Noel” and Tommy, Nick, and Kevin filmed them singing/playing in our sunroom while I hung out with Tommy & Shelley’s kids over in the living room. I cannot tell you how much fun I had watching the “littles” while the “bigs” made music in the room next door that night! 7-year-old Lizzie and I turned book pages together and I felt my heart burst a little every time she moved her hand over mine. 11-year-old Samuel and I discovered that origami paper also folds quite nicely into airplanes when making swans involves too many tricky steps. 4-year-old Ethan and I sat side-by-side on our chair-and-a-half and listening to his sweet, little boy voice was absolute music to this mama-to-be’s ears! 😀

Those gals have been such Lights in my life this year, and I feel blessed to be able to share them with you here this Christmas Eve, too!
