The Faves sang at the Christmas Carol Festival of the Confederation Park Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. One week later, we also sang at Calgary Alberta North Stake Carol Festival. Thank you to the festival organizers that invited us to sing on their program. It was great to be included with other fine Christmas music.
The Hidden Valley association welcomed winter with a day of outside skating, hockey and bonfire. And the Favourite Four sang for their out-in-the air event. Singing around the bonfire is magical for us. Cold hands and feet but warm hearts. It was a great evening. Welcome Winter.
Dion's brithday wasn't complete without a song. Dion's wife, Jennifer, surprised him on his birthday with a taylor made song just for him. Dion has written songs for his friends' birthdays. It seemed only fitting that he get a song too. We wrote a song about his exploits coaching baseball and running marathons. Then we sang it at his birthday dinner in a beautiful restaurant. Happy Birthday Dion.
