Silent Night

"Silent Night" has always been a favorite Christmas song of mine. I loved composing the piano and singing on this one!

It's been a while since I've blogged. I will not even attempt to update the past few months. We are doing wonderful here in the Tanner household. Definitely a busy bunch these days, but loving life. I thought I would put my latest song on here! Most of my Christmas songs are in the final stages. I'll continue to post occasional videos throughout the year. For those interested... they will eventually be available on itunes. It's been a lot of fun! 

Christmas in February? Why not. :)

Joy School Natvity

I was in charge of Gracie's school nativity program. The kids did such a great job this morning at the Stonehenge rest home. I was SO proud of them. I even saw a couple of the folks with tears in their eyes, which of course made me tear up as well. :) Makes all the work worth it.  Here are the videos from my phone. Not the greatest quality.

Stonehenge was a great place to go. They were very accommodating of us, and it was super nice and organized there. They even wrote me a thank you card. So sweet.

Tanner Family Update

Hello! It has been a while. We are now in the midst of the holidays and loving every minute. Some new things going on at our house...

Lola is now a walker! It's pretty darn cute.

Lola turned 1 on September 17. I love her so much. Beauty is just the cherry on top for this child. She is also hilarious. Spend an hour with her and you will see it for yourself. At her one year appointment she was 28 percentile in height and 8 percentile in weight. So a little thing. But CUTE nonetheless. :)

We were able to go to Disneyland in October with the Tanner side. It was such a fun trip. Loved every minute.

 Gracie broke her arm a few weeks ago falling off the barstool. Not our finest hour, but we got through it. She has done really well with the cast. She gets it off in a week and a half. She will then be getting a splint for another 3 weeks. It's our first broken bone and hopefully our last! She was so brave. :(

Gracie is loving Joy School. I teach about every 6 weeks and I really like it. We have a great group of kids and moms. Not to mention that it is inexpensive. Another perk to this great program.
Ryan is now in his 2nd semester at the U of U. He is working on getting his masters in Accounting. I am so proud of him. I can't imagine that it is easy working full-time, school part-time, father and husband full-time (and a good one at that), and fulfilling his callings at church. I rarely even notice he is in school. He manages everything very well.

I also have some new things going on. I auditioned and joined the Salt Lake Choral Artists, which was recently named Utah's 2012 "Best in State." Dr. Brady Allred is the director. I am so impressed with him. It is kind of like being in school again. :/ It has forced me to work on my music theory, which is something I needed and wanted to do. It's been a great experience so far. If you would like to get tickets to our Christmas Concert on Dec. 22 "O Yule Full of Gladness" Christmas Around The World.... visit The concert is at Libby Gardner Concert Hall.

As far as my Christmas album. Unfortunately, there is no way I will be finished by this Christmas. It is quite a bit of work and time. My family is #1. I will continue to work on it until it is completed. No matter how long it takes! You can count on little videos here and there of some of my completed pieces. If you would like a copy of my recent work "O Come All Ye Faithful".... visit the Festival of Trees this year. Pick up a copy of this album. All proceeds go to Primary Children's Hospital. It's a really good Christmas cd.

If I don't update again for a while....

Happy Holidays!!!

The holidays are just around the corner. I know it's a little early for Christmas, but I thought I would share my version of "O Come All Ye Faithful" that I composed, and that will be featured on this years Festival of Trees CD. Now Entering it's 42nd year, the Festival of Trees is a wonderful fundraiser for Primary Children's Hospital in SLC. The album will be for sale as part of the benefit. I will be in great company on the cd with musicians like Donny Osmond. Thank you to all of the talented people who were involved with this song!! I am so happy with the final product.
