Choir & Kitchens

There he goes.  Off to sing his little heart out with Brad & Beth’s mom and Stephannie’s brother.  (Yes, his tuxedo is all in the suit bag.) The Lincoln Lutheran Choir had their first concert of the weekend in Council Bluffs, Iowa tonight, and it was wonderful!  They sang Thanksgiving-type songs, and sang all of […]
