… and send to Grandy and Granddad.
I thought it was a nice idea – they’ve enjoyed recording each other performing in the past – but the day was packed with shopping, a piano recital, and a birthday party, and the next thing we knew, it was nearly bedtime. I suggested that we simply send Grandy and Granddad the recordings of the Christmas songs they played at their piano recital. Tiny Dancer was satisfied with this, but Little Buddha would have none of it. “We were going to do that anyway!” he declared, and he was right. He felt strongly that an Advent activity should be something new (he feels strongly about a lot of things; he gets that from his mom).
So I suggested that, for our Advent activity, we turn off all the lights, and sit in front of the lit Christmas tree, and say prayers for the people in Newtown, Connecticut. He agreed this was a good idea, and so that’s what we did.
