Nerd Alert! Today was a Saturday filled with fun and games. We watched The Hobbit in 3D, ate dinner at Big Bowl and played hours of strategy board games, including Settlers of Catan.

Providence Academy Holiday Concert

Providence Academy Holiday Concert
365.349

My cousin Mark and his friend Matthew performed at the Providence Academy high school holiday concert. It was an uplifting moment on a day of difficult news from the northeast. The music swelled to a finish with the band performing together with the concert choir, which was holding candles and encircling the audience. And we all sang along with full heart and voice–filled with the Christmas spirit of hope, peace and joy.

Christmas Film Festival


   365.345

One of my friends, Katie, (also a former coworker from my first job) hosts an annual tradition with her husband Mark: the Paulson Christmas Film Festival. The setup? Monday nights with dinner, drinks and a Christmas movie each week for a month. Tonight’s movie was National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. The menu? Tacos and stingers. So good to see Katie and Mark, friends Shandra (another PR agency alum) and Peter and meet new folks too. The result? Awesome fun.

Holidazzled

It wasn’t the first nor the second time, nor the fourth or fifth, but the eighth time I reckon that I’d seen the Holidazzle parade roll down Nicollet Avenue in downtown Minneapolis. And it was every bit as much fun to watch (and as cold) as every year I can remember.
