good morning pink ladies. hope this day finds you ready for Christmas. i know i'm not but that's always a usual thing for me. the picture below is one of my pinks for the day. it isn't the best but the concert which it comes from is fantastic! the trans-siberion orchestra is absolutely one of the best to be heard. we went to new orleans thursday night for the show at the arena and i was not expecting this performance at all. my husband was the one who wanted to go because he loves music so much and i was so glad i hobbled along. the lights, the pyrotechnics, the unbelievable voices and musicians!! if you get the chance to go and love music, take it!
then friday night i opted for a quiet evening watching "White Christmas", one of my favorite holiday shows. if you check out the trailer, which i will try to link to, the dress that vera ellen wears in her dance number is the prettiest pink! when i watch these shows it's the only time i wish for snow for Christmas. a few years ago, though, that actually happened and of course, no one could go anywhere because we aren't prepared for that kind of weather. 
here's the link: White Christmas 
Merry Christmas and Peace on Earth

We went to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra a few weeks ago. What a wonderful concert! I love the Christmas story! I don't remember his name but the dark haired guy with the bluesy voice was awesome. They were all awesome!
Happy Pink Saturday and Merry Christmas!

SueSue, We too love the Trans-Siberian
Orchestra. Their music is awesome. We have never seen them in person. I would love that. We have a few of their CD's.

I also love White Christmas. We usually watch it every year. So far we haven't seen it. Not much time left.

Snow here in the mountains means everything comes to a dead stop. The roads are not safe with all the curves etc. We just stay in and enjoy our fireplace.

Christmas hugs...Jeanne

The concert must have been wonderful. White Christmas is my favorite Christmas movie. I watch it every year.

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season.

Hi Sue
I'm sure I left a comment but I don't see it.
My hubby and I saw "White Christmas" on Broadway in N.Y. last month. It is also one of my fav. It was amazing to see it live. They only ran it for 29 weeks. We were very fortunate to get tickets.
Wanted to wish you a very Happy New Year.
Love your blog.
