Life since Thanksgiving

Our lives changed quite a bit the week of Thanksgiving.  Tom retired from the City of San Angelo.  There are many factors that drove this decision. Let's just say the new City Manager and the Water Utilities Director and Asst. Director(Tom) didn't mesh well together. So we are embarking on a new adventure. Not sure if it will take us away from San Angelo or not.  Anxious to see what our Lord has planned for us in 2013.  We are trying hard to live by Padre Pio's advice of 'Pray, Hope, and Don't Worry.' 
James and William were thrust into nightly rehearsals for Oliver.  Last weekend the San Angelo Broadway Academy cast of 58 students presented Oliver in 5 performances at the coliseum.  I had my hands on several aspects of the show as well.  My friend Mary and I took the headshot pictures.  Then I took some 1300 production pictures of the kids on stage.  I haven't sat down yet to widdle that number down to a manageable amount to put on a disc.  I am just praying I have enough decent ones to share. 
Audrey has seen a doctor at Scottish Rite hospital in Dallas.  He is a scoliosis specialist.  She has a curve at the lower end of her spine.  It isn't severe but to keep it from worsening he has recommended she wear a brace at night.  She was measured for it and she, Mom, and I went to Dallas this past weekend to pick it up.  She has done really well with it and doesn't seem to have a hard time sleeping.
The kids are all doing well in school and looking forward to an early release today and 2 weeks off.
We pray all our family and friends are safe, healthy, and happy this holiday season.  Big Hugs and Many Blessings for a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
