Christmas Bells + Little Children = Home

Go to Temple Square to see the lights and go to a Christmas bell concert
Advent Calendar Day 7

Well we took the whole family downtown in the rain/snowstorm to go to A Christmas Bell Fantasy at the Conference Center. As we picked up our tickets the man asked us to please sit in the back since we had little children. Following his directions, we made our way to the back of the auditorium. Several ushers told us that children under 8 years old were not supposed to be in the auditorium and that we should go to the media room. We decided to give it a try in the auditorium with the little ones and see if they would be quiet... we made it through the first song and prayer and decided to leave. :) Morgan loved the bells and just couldn't stop talking about them and if she could have a turn, too. It was all just a little too loud for the soft bell concert and all the dates around us. We then went outside and decided it was too wet with the snow to walk around temple square and that we would have to see the lights on another night. We did our best to see the lights from the car so maybe we will have to call it good for this year!

Did you hear the whole concert? I was going to tell you that Callie got us tickets to that last year, and it dragged on and on! And they kept playing all of these slow christmas songs. People started just leaving in the middle of it. I didn't want to say anything in case you really liked it, but it sounds like you didn't get to enjoy much of it!
