Christmas day ended at Grandma and Grandpa Mumaw’s place with good food and fun times and flurries on the way. Well the flurries continued, and it snowed and snowed… Soon Grandma forgot we are originally from the north and know how to drive in the snow and sent us all home early before the roads got covered with snow.
Well it continued to snow through out the night and in the morning we woke up to find 6 to 7 inches of the fluffy white stuff. The snow was thick on the branches and looked beautiful. A combination of the opportunity to play inside with new toys and me forgetting to pull out the camera later on these are the only pictures I have of this wonderful snow storm.
For Amber, pictures wouldn’t do it justice. She had a blast exploring the new cold whit fluffy stuff. Sure we had a few dustings before, but this was different. She would run and scurry, dig here snout in the snow and shake and snort. It was fun.
Amber just got her hair cut and then we got some snow. The snow didn’t amount to much, but that didn’t stop the kids from trying to have as much fun in it as they could.
This little princess is not my daughter, she lives next door. Isn’t she cute?
Christmas is fast approaching and get it kicked into gear, we took the family to the NewSong Christmas concert. It was great. The concert was in a big church instead of a large sports arena and we had front row seats. It was a late night for the kids, but they didn’t seem to mind.
NewSong brought with them Michael Tate (formerly of the D.C. Talk and now with NewsBoys), Kerrie Roberts (fairly new to the Christian Music scene) and some great violinist (can’t remember his name). I brought with me a BlackBerry Storm to try it out recording some of the concert. The video looks decent for a phone video, but the audio is awful… either I was covering the microphone or it just can’t handle the loud volume.
All the performances were great, the place was packed and Russ Lee (now singing with NewSong) was just awesome as usual.

I used LightRoom to clear up the noise caused by shooting in the dark with out a flash and high ISO of 1600.
