We were in a Flash Mob!

Mommy learned about an opportunity to be in a flash mob right here in Lancaster a few weeks ago. She received an invitation from a Facebook friend to come to the Hallelujah Chorus Flash Mob in Lancaster, PA event. Oh my, she was so excited! She's been watching YouTube videos of flash mobs across the world for years now and always wanted to be a part of one. This was her opportunity. Plus, she's been singing the alto part of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus from The Messiah since she was in the 10th grade!

We came along with Mommy to 2 rehearsals and by yesterday, she had her part memorized again and we knew some of it too! So yesterday morning we all headed down to Central Market as the 'mob' was set for 9:30am. We've never seen the market so crowded and on cue it went off without a hitch. What fun!

Here's a video of Mommy singing along:

Afterwards, we were interviewed for a newspaper article and lo and behold, this morning the article is on the front page! Mommy is quoted... how exciting!

Also, a professional video of the event was posted. Don't look for us, we're not in it. There were SO many people!

Here's a shot of us after the fun from the new balcony of the market. The market was recently renovated and it is just beautiful to see the original ceiling as well as many other upgrades. We are so lucky to have such a great market!

Hope you are all enjoying your last week of Advent and getting ready for Christmas Day when we can all sing.. Hallelujah!

UPDATE: so many videos keep popping up... someone posted this one to Facebook. If you go to time marker 1:37 you;ll see us :-)
