Christmas 1915

1915 on Christmas Day
On the western front the guns all died away
And lying in the mud on bags of sand
We heard a German sing from no man's land
He had tenor voice so pure and true
The words were strange but every note we knew
Soaring or the the living dead and dammed
The German sang of peace from no man's land

They left their trenches and we left ours
Beneath tin hats smiles bloomed like wild flowers
With photos, cigarettes, and pots of wine
We bult a soldier's truce on the front line
Their singer was a lad of 21
We begged another song before the dawn
And sitting in the mud and blood and fear
He sang again the song all longed to hear

Silent night, no cannons roar
A king is born of peace for evermore
All's calm, all's bright
All brothers hand in hand
In 19 and 15 in no man's land

And in the morning all guns boomed in the rain
And we killed them and they killed us again
At night they charged we fought them hand to hand
And I killed the boy that sang in no man's land

Silent night no cannons roar
A king is born of peace for evermore
All's calm, all's bright
All brothers hand in hand
And that young soldier sings
And the song of peace still rings
Though the captains and all the kings
Built no man's land
Sleep in heavenly peace

Spring, I miss you!

Winter is here, that means that Spring is the next season.
I can't wait!

I Could Have Danced All Night.

This is the best song from My Fair Lady.

My birthday

On the 28th of November I turned 18 but since things have been so crazy around here I haven't gotten around to posting the pictures until now.
For my birthday I wanted to go ice skating so we found out that there was an ice skating rink about an hour from us so we all went over and spent the afternoon in the wonderful out doors in the ice. I was so worried that it was going to be cold but it wasn't. We couldn't have asked for a better day!

That night we had pie and ice cream. Mmmmmm it was really good! My sister, Amanda, makes the best pie! Jim and Marge Foster came over for a little while and we all had a good time.
Some of us watched Pirates of the Caribbean and then to finish off my birthday Alicia and I stayed up until after 2:00 am so we were tired the next day. :)

I had a wonderful birthday! Thanks everyone!

Oh, and thanks Anna for my presents! I love them! ;)

She loves seeing herself in the mirror, but she isn't looking in this picture.
