The concert was AWESOME! Seriously, it was so casual you felt like you were on a cozy couch in a basement hanging out with your cool cousins groovy band and a 1,000 other strangers. All of the musicians were extremely talented and the music was uplifting, inspiring, and beautiful.
Claire and Jane were so adorable. My favorite was after one messed up they grabbed each other's hands and held on the rest of the song. The whole time waiting for their turn to perform I kept thinking about all the excitement dancing through their minds. What a big day it has been for them, flying on an airplane after what happened to their parents, seeing their dad with his new scars and after so long, not being able to visit their mom yet (I don't think anyway), the big concert with all their fans, so much for such little girls. They sang beautiful and were edibly cute!
The tribute video for Doug Kinneard was heart wrenching, his family is beautiful. I had so much hope during the tribute for Christian and Stephanie, they have so much life yet to live. AND the night ended with an oncore performance with Cjane singing Smile! She did note that nobody hates her singing more than Stephanie! My hubby even enjoyed the concert and our babysitter told us our kids were the best she has ever watched. What a wonderful night! Blurry pictures coming soon, for now I have to prepare a Relief Society lesson for church tomorrow...
Update on Threads of Love: I am trying to organize a sewing day, I'll keep you informed. I have also received a few more packages that I have not posted yet. Many have also offered to send more squares, I'm sorry I have not been able to reply to everyone individually. For now it appears that we will have plenty of squares for the projects we have planned. Thank you all for your love, prayers, faith, and generosity. I feel so blessed to be a part of this.
