Beau is on the the far right in the first row of the big chorus, all dressed in their white clothes and green and red vests and gloves. What a sight and what a sound! To say we were mighty impressed would be an understatement! It was a wonderful, inspiring evening to be with Ann and Steve, and little Joshua, and Rebecca, Alexis, Rhett and Zachery, Elsie and Catelyn too! How fun for us!

Thank you, Beau and Gracie for doing such an outstanding job, together with your fellow students and teachers!

This performance by the elementary age children was held in the Show Low High School auditorium. The large auditorium was filled almost to capacity to view this performance; a traditional event of the past 16 years!
These are the Kindergarten students of Mrs. Allen's class, during their performance. Gracie is the bright yellow Christmas stocking in the front row. They were wonderful!

Wednesday, Dec 17, the weather cleared and we drove to Show Low and out to our daughter Ann's home in Linden so Linda could get her hair down by her favorite hair stylist. But, most importantly, we were there so we could attend the Linden Elementary School's annual Christmas program starring these two cuties, Beau and Gracie!

The manger scene, on display at the Mesa Arizona Temple grounds as part of the annual Christmas lights and Christmas performances that take place each night during December. Soft music can be heard and the voice of President Gordon B. Hinckley, bearing testimony of the reality of the Savior's birth.

Tuesday, Dec 16, after attending our Ward Temple Night I had the opportunity to walk about the Temple gardens and take a few pictures of the beautiful Christmas lights!
We love this old Mesa Arizona Temple! The rain was coming down and there weren't very many visitors about the grounds at 9 p.m. What a special sight!
