---

Love's the reason for romance..........ohhhhh, it'll get you if you give it half a chance.....*sigh*

Beverly says meeting Mr. Ledford was magical. I think this show is magical - and oh so romantic!

I've always loved Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas..........and now I love it even more.

Ever think Tommy's Mom and Dad could stand to go in for a little family counseling? Mom belittles Dad and Tommy, Dad yells at Mom, Tommy is dumped off on the neighbor lady, and they neglect to show up for his concert.... <_<

Christmas Waltz...sounds great as always...with a lighthearted touch...

this is great reception...I wonder if they changed phones

bottlecap, I think they are presenting a pretty typical family...with some bickering and some mistakes, but I don;t think it was meant to show a very dysfunctional family at all IMO.

SilverBells...she does have a good voice. and I love how Clay pulls back the powere to blend beautifully with her.

BWAH - Bottlecap - I think everyone has parents that fight a little, it is more sick not to fight.

Well they certainly loved those Clay Aiken lines in that scene - heh

Damn - does anyone think that the beeping is the charge going down on the phone ?

From CB:

.....time to waltz......it's that time of year when the world falls in love.......merry christmas, may your new years dream come true.......his voice just flows with the music.....

my new year's dream.....a hit CD for CA....

---

love this part of the show - when Clay sings the Christmas Waltz, and Beverly gets to dance with Mr. Ledford again. Its so cute when Clay makes them bump into each other. I love the gleam in his eye when he gets the idea to do it. So sweet!

---

second place dialog is a BIG HIT with the crowd!!!!

---

came in second. .crowd explodes.. what ever. .huge screaming and whooping....that clay aiken guy...and they come unglued..moms says...

Christmas Song...I can;t ebelive this has become one of my favorite songs on the tour.

I reallt think Gregory makes a big difference to the show. It just sounds so much fuller and the script more enjoyable when it is done as Clay intended...Beverly saying most of the lines really took away from the flow of the show.

Glad Gregory is back...

Silver bells.....sounds just wonderful.....their voices are blending together just beautifully...Tommy would vote for her!

Now, they are off to make some cookies...still haven't made any for my poor cookieless family.....(but DIL will, being pregnant is nooooo excuse... )

....everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe help to make the season bright (will a ham do?) - tiny tots with their eyes all aglow will find it hard to sleep tonight....

---

Ahhhh........The Christmas Song.....Clay's voice is as smooth as butter. He infuses this song with just the right touch of nostalgia and longing. All the little touches they added to the staging of this song are so effective. It made me pretty teary when I saw the show, because it reminded me how much I used to enjoy making cookies with my own kids.

---

sounds cutting out a bit..nope there he is.. strong and sturdy..jack frost nipping at your nose..yule tide carols....the cookies sceen taking place.. as he lowers his frame to the step .. sits...as if singing to himself..but knowing the world is hearing his voice words meaning.. reaches inside his pocket..the cookie cutter finds his fingers. .and like magic he pullsit from his heart.. holding it looking at it..loving the meaning of it..now sharing it with bev and tommy...placing it on the table.. as they go about their routine of baking together..he witnesses the joy of love and friendship..family...he is please..slowly stands turns to gaze at them.. from one to 92... many times many ways.. merry christmas .. merry merry merry christmasssssss to youuuuu as he has completed his mission he drifts into the darkness happy content.. and the crowd applaused

In Atlanta, I held my breath through the entire first half hoping Garner would get through it. He was a cutie.

I wasn't really tense...the little boy, after his entrance where he looked at the crowd adn probably thought..oh shit..did fine. I remember just being more impressed that Allison was able to carry the show like she did.

Fear must have her phone on vibrate or not have it. She is not answering. Actually this is pretty funny because whenever we go to concerts together, she ends up with her phone dialing me while we are in concert. The first few times she nudged me and said that my phone should be off, but when I looked at the phone, I could see that she was calling. After that, she realized that she needed to turn off her phone, when mine started ringing.

What a happy cellcerter.

Yay, Martha picked my person. I have to run off to TWO in the second half to cheer.

Faye was very sweet. She asked if this was a cellcert. She wanted to know if Pam was going to anymore shows. Pam said, yes she was going to Clearwater and Faye commented on it being warmer there. It was a brief conversation, but she was very friendly and sounded happy.

I love the CV cellcerters - they are becoming very bold in getting interviews. The last couple of nights have been a mother / daughter duo, who are a hoot and a half during the intermissions. I still can't believe they handed Faye the phone..... :D

I think Faye just thought it was a person to person cellcert - I don't think she knew it was a stream to a whole board....
