I have needed a haircut for a LONG time (just ask my hairdresser!) So, I finally called and made an appointment. First off, let me say:
secondly, allow me to say that I have been vacillating between growing my hair out, and cutting it back to the super short sassy do that I had for a while. Literally, I was in agony trying to decide what to do. I texted many, and many responded...equally! So, I showed up to my appointment and said "AAARGH!!" She laughed and had me sit down.
Now, for those who may not have seen me recently, my hair had made it to my shoulders (an incredible feat) and was just blah. So I either had to keep it long, but give it shape, or chop it off. It was suggested to shave it, which had crossed my mind many times.
Finally I told Barbara to make me look good, whichever way she chose to cut it.

Good Choice!

She always knows what I want, even if I don't! Amazing! So, I have my sassiness back, and I don't feel like I have to always put my hair up!

We haven't seen these guys in awhile...

These pictures were taken at Thanksgiving by yours truly...

I know Lily isn't looking up, but Cooper's face is so precious!

We spent alot of time walking outside. Lily and Cooper would say "Outsi? Outsi?" So outside we would go!

This is Cooper saying "Where did they go?"

Such an adorable family!
Walking, walking, running

Running with cousin Hannah

This is what Cooper does when you tell him to squint
I love these kids! Aren't they adorable?

The Holiday Season

Wow! Let's see, where have I been? A Christmas Carol played in November, just before thanksgiving. The show was so much fun, and I dearly loved playing Mrs. Fezziwig. She and I are kindred spirits.

(This is my play family, Mr. Fezziwig, Charlotte, and I. Btw, this young lady can play a fiddle like you wouldn't believe!)

I spent thanksgiving with my parents, and all of my siblings were home, with my niece and nephew there as well. It was really fun to be all together again.

Of course it wouldn't be a Zimmerman family get-together without game of Rummi and Sees Candy. We had so many who wanted to play we had to get 2 tables going. This is a tradition that reminds me of Grandma Z.

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas I worked like crazy! Anyone who works retail understands that this is the busiest time of the year! I had a nice quiet Christmas morning, and then had Christmas dinner with my good friends the Edvalsons.

My latest projects seem to take up most of my time. Our ward choir has once again been asked to provide the music for Stake Conference. Our choir normally has 12 or so people attending. After begging, pleading, and cajoling we have about 30! It is amazing! They are sounding so good. Fortunately, things will go back to normal after conference is over.

The other "project" seems a little scarier! I have been asked to help out with a local school districts middle school musical. They have done a major musical every year for the past 16 years or so. This year they are putting on the Broadway show Beauty and the Beast. There are about 150 seventh and eighth graders in this show, which means a lot of kids packed into rehearsals. I have been accompanying for rehearsals, which is a lot of fun. The music is great, and the kids are a riot to work with. Some of them are just perfect for their parts.
