Weekend Wrap-up ~ Dec. 13 & 14

This weekend was a busy one for McKayla. Her Children's choir had a weekend long Christmas performance titled A Night of Hope at church. They had a show Friday night, 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. McKayla wanted (and did) all 5 shows. 

Friday, the first show, Grandpa, Chris, me and John all went to see the performance. Partially to see how long the performance was to see if McKayla could physically do it but also b/c we wanted to see her sing.

It was TWO hours long! Yikes! It was great but too long. Luckily, the Children's Choir part was only on stage for about 30 minutes. There's no way McKayla or any of the other kids could've stayed still the entire 2 hours.

We didn't watch any of the other performances the rest of the week but dutifully took McKayla so she could perform. Both Saturday and Sunday's performances were at 4 and then 7, so we'd drop her off about 3:30 and then pick her up at 8. They fed them, played games and watched movies in between the performances and had the option to leave if they wanted, but McKayla wanted to stay. ☺

Sunday afternoon, before the final shows and Chris going to his Dad's, I had the kids pose for pictures to send out to family.

And that was the extent of our weekend. It was kinda busy but it wasn't. A lot of driving back and forth but McKayla enjoyed singing, so it was worth it to see her smile. ☺

How was YOUR weekend? Anything exciting or did you just have a relaxing weekend at home?


  1. Worked my butt off this weekend hehe. I'm glad she had so much fun!! It's so awesome that she is so outgoing and enjoys these things. :)

    1. I was never an outgoing kid.....shoot, I'm STILL not! LOL But I'm glad she likes doing these things. :-)

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…
