Getting in the Christmas Spirit

 This weekend we headed to Minneapolis to the 31st Annual Augsburg College Advent Vespers. Our daughter goes to Augsburg so we thought it would be a great way to get into the Christmas spirit.  It really is a great service with four different choirs and an orchestra.  No over weight Elvis impersonators, no Santa's, just good Christian music and the true meaning of Christmas.
We spent the night then Sunday we went to the Guthrie Theater and saw A Christmas Carol. We didn't have tickets so we did the rush line thing where you show up about 45 minutes in advance get in line, then about 20 minutes before the show starts they sell unsold tickets at bargain prices.  We got 58.00 tickets for 25.00.  At the Guthrie there really isn't a bad seat in the house.  Pictures aren't allowed in the theater but here are a couple with the wonderful view of Minneapolis.
