The kids, Liz, and our friend Emily enjoyed an amazing concert at a church in Fremont on December 13. Our friends Kristian Ehlert and Ronna delRosario were part of a special group of singers from the Fremont Christian School who were invited to join in the presentation. We've decided to make this Christmas concert part of our annual traditions!
We attended the "Let Us Break Bread Together" Holiday Concert at the Paramount Theater on December 14 with our good friends David & Tina Crotzer. What a great lunch we enjoyed at a little Mexican restaurant in Oakland with the Crotzers, and then the afternoon of music was a fantastic way to enjoy more of the music of the season.
