Violin Concert for St. Nicholaus

Each year the kids participate in a violin concert for St. Nicholaus. They donate a used toy to charity, then preform for a large audience, and are asked to watch attentively when they are not on stage.  In the end they are rewarded for their grand efforts with a goodie bag filled with a big speculous cookie, chocolates, and little candies. Our kids seem to preform willingly for such a reward. I'll upload some video of their current musical talents, ( surely you're salivating in anticipation?) but in the meantime, here are some shots from the seats in the peanut gallery. I'm convinced that if I spoke better french we'd get better seats; one incentive to staying in french class. In the meantime, we'll just continue to watch from the cheap seats.
C'est la vie!

 Her list of requests was endless...you can just read the impatience on the kids in line behind her. (Just kidding, St. Nick was chatting it up, and not really taking details for Santa's visit on the 24th).
 If you're wondering where numero 4 was through the concert, well, he was right here. Sick with a fever, cough, earaches and miserable with sinus troubles. He toughed it out for his reward too - a trip to the doc and round of antibiotics. Life is good.
