Recording Session and Light Show

Amanda will be returning to Germany in about 2 weeks, so we were happy we could have her with us to record three new songs for Whistling Prairie's newest Christmas album (for next year). Everyone played while Amanda sang I'm Gonna Be the First One Up on Christmas Morning. Amanda then played harp while Brittany and Crystal sang Come Thou Long Expected Jesus, and finally, Brittany played the piano while Amanda sang What Are You Doing on New Year's Eve.

Afterwards, we went out to dinner in Fells Point, at Brick Oven Pizza. One of our favorite restaurants in Provo has the same name! We enjoyed walking along the Chesapeake bay afterwards and listening to the street musicians. (Some good, and some still in training!)

We finished up at the Inner Harbor, where we enjoyed the holiday light show on the facade of the Power Plant. It is a new tradition in Baltimore, but hopefully, one that will continue. It was very fun. It was hard to get a picture that does it justice. This was the best I could do!

We had just enough time after we got home for some more Scattegories, Catch Phrase and Beatles Rock Band. Today the fun is over. The kids went back to Utah, and left us with nothing but memories!


  1. Looks like John is blending in great with the family. Did he play the saw on your new CD. Say goodbye to Amanda for us. I will look forward to her weekly emails. Will she be extending her time?
