Advent magic

We had our First Day of Advent service tonight, and all of my kids were chosen to be the candle bearers... To make the evening complete, I got to sing a solo as well. Gaby took many pictures, but it was kind of dark and some are not good. The kids were fantastic, with little Florencia leading the whole choir...

Hoy tuvimos nuestro servicio de Adviento, y mis hijos fueron elegidos para llevar las velas en la procesión. Para hacer la velada completa, a mí me tocó cantar un solo. Gaby sacó muchas fotos, pero estaba oscuro y muchas no salieron bien. Los chicos estuvieron fantásticos, con Florcita liderando la procesión delante del coro...

 

Flor and Santi getting ready...
...and Caro and Juan getting ready...
Florencia leading the procession.
I'm the belly behind her
Juan is coming in as well, next to Santi
We're about to go in!
Florcita looking as cute as she can
Multitasking a little: singing while making sure Flor won't start walking yet
And away we go...
This is me singing my solo
...and this is Juan leading the recessional

  1. How brave of Florencia! I used to do that when I was a kid - we didn't have a choice, our parents made us - and I hated it. Not that I hated helping, but having all of those eyes on me...~shudder~
    I was glad when I got too old to Acolyte for the church. Then, I went on teach Sunday School.
    I realized when I saw your photos how much I miss my little church.
    Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Me encanta todo lo que este relacionado con tradiciones y festejos tipicos navideños. Lo que no logro ver bien es que tipo de iglesia es. No parece católica mas bien anglicana. ¿Me equivoco?.

  3. Biddie, Florencia is more than brave, she literally owns the world. She was so well behaved, nobody could believe it, even though I had told them. She loves playing the 'perfect princess role'.

    My four kids had the rehearsal after the morning service, and once they were done it was announced that Florencia was going to be the one leading the procession, the youngest person to have ever done that. The other three kids were perfect too, maybe too perfect. They might have ruined their reputation ...

    I'm a proud dad.

    Nata, ni lo uno ni lo otro. Es una iglesia de la United Church of Canada (Iglesia Unida), que es a la que pertenecemos.

  6. Alejandra, OK, voy a subir un MP3 que me tenga a mí cantando. Lo más seguro es que sea música religiosa, por supuesto...

    Biddie, we really have a lot to be proud of. Me more than Gaby, because I'm also proud of her :-)))

  7. Increíble que se haya caído unos minutos antes de su aparición en la iglesia. Que niña tan valiente.
    Gabriel, me gustaría escucharte alguna vez, has grabado algo?

  8. Ana, ahí también lo pidió Alejandra.

    Sí, tengo varios CDs grabados, aunque uno solo como solista.

    Voy a mirar los DVDs que me traje para USA. Si tengo alguno con mis MP3 voy a postearlos mañana mismo.

    Es más, voy a poner uno de ópera, uno religioso, uno de Navidad y uno de música de los '40. Qué tal!

  9. Estaré a la espera de tus grabaciones.
    Pon el navideño, a propósito de las fechas, no?
    :)

  10. Si tienes villancicos, sería genial poder disponer de ellos para nuestros hogares en Navidad.
    Y mas lindo sería que cante toda la familia.
    Así los tendremos de invitados en nuestra cena de Navidad.
    Y como dijo alguien por ahí, le hacemos copias y los vendemos, jajajaja. Luego te depositamos el royalty.
