Nine students from Glenwood attended The Nutcracker at Keller Auditorium on Dec. 10. The group was accompanied by Mrs. Allaway, Mrs. Thomas and Mrs. Edmondson, who had organized the outing. In addition to attending the evening performance of the holiday ballet, the group went out to dinner at Chang's Mongolian Grill. Mrs. Edmondson reported that "the ballet was enjoyed by everyone, and the holiday spirit was everywhere." Mrs. Edmondson indicated that The Nutcracker is a Christmas tradition that is presented in all of the major cities in the Pacific Northwest -- including Portland. Mrs. Edmondson invites anyone interested in attending the 2006 performance to contact her.

Have you checked out the "rad" snowman at Earl's house on the BZ-Glenwood Highway? His spiked icicle hair is just the wildest? Thank you to our community members who have decorated their homes with Christmas lights. They add such a festive atmosphere to our neighborhood -- especially with the beautiful snow-covered landscape.
