This afternoon, I will worship at my church, Independent Presbyterian Church, to celebrate the service of 9 Lessons and Carols. Merry Christmas to all of my friends here and around the world who celebrate with me. For those of you of other faiths, I pray we will continue to honor the beliefs of each other and find peace in this troubled world.

John Hand Building. Built in 1912, it was Birmingham's tallest building for one year, till the City Federal Building took that honor. It housed banks until recently and now it's been reborn as a mixed us building featuring downtown condos. The architectural details make it one of Birmingham's finest.

Well the weather through us a curve ball here in Alabama, and was suppose to be a "light dusting" proved to be a delightful fluffy snow day. That meant no schools, no Lessons and Carols and no just about anything but staying inside and enjoying watching the snow fall. I did venture out several times, just around my apartment for photos so you'll be seeing a few for the next few days. It will be back to business as usual tomorrow I hope!
For my Birmingham area readers, I hope you will attend Independent Presbyterian Church's 68th Annual Holiday House Tour. You can purchase tickets online, at each home or at the church. Saturday and Sunday the church will be open for you to see the exquisite floral decorations and have tea in the Great Hall. All proceeds go to fund so many wonderful projects such as the Children's Fresh Air Farm and the STAIR reading program.

Today will be the 11th year I've attended the exquisite Service of Lessons and Carols at the Advent School. Under the direction of Richard Phillips, this beautiful service is the true beginning of the Christmas season for me. For 9 of these years, my two grandchildren Eva and Davis took part in the service as students then as members of the Choral Ensemble as well. I will miss seeing their sweet faces but look forward to sharing the service with friends.

Last weekend, my granddaughter Chappell danced in the Magic City Nutcracker, Vestavia Dance. I photographed from the audience as a very proud grandmother but will share some special photos from the performance this week!
