An excited Alison waiting by the door in her pretty Christmas dress and pretty beaded cardigan.
She was very excited to go see the "talent show"
I didn't take a picture of Ethan but he was wearing pajamas and slept through the entire concert, even when the band came out and surrounded the audience and there was a trombone not two feet away form him, Ethan slept on. I am guessing its a perk of living with a toddler!
It was a really fun concert and they played a variety of music from classical to popular, a little something for everyone to enjoy. We sat with some neighbors and their two little girls. Poor daddy was on a work trip so missed this fun outing.
Grandma Carolyn actually sent me a clip of the concert!!
Here is the Marine Band doing a Christmas interpretation of "Gangnam Style"
the whole show was wonderful and we had a great time. Before the show USO people handed out Christmas cards made by children back in the US wishing us a merry Christmas and thanking the marines for their service. After the show there were no joke, at least 4 to 5 tables loaded down with home made cookies for everyone to grab (free) and the band lined up so the kids could come and see them up close and really get a look at their instruments. It was a really fun night, Alison and I had a blast.
