Celtic Woman

  My mom and Grandma are next door neighbors.  Actually, better than that, they are on both sides of a duplex.  I adore how much they do together, and praise God for His infinite wisdom in moving them side by side.

  Grandma always has to call mom when Celtic Woman comes on PBS.  She also calls me and makes me tell the girls so they can turn it on.  Haha, she is so funny!  They are so talented and the girls love their long flowing gowns. 

The video link won’t work above, but you can listen later.  They played Amazing Grace with bag pipes at the concert, oh my word! AMAZING.

   When I got an email from Groupon saying they were coming to a town near us for one day only, I knew we had to go.  Even better, the VERY expensive tickets, were reduced to $19.99!  I called mom and we planned a special SURPRSIE Mothers Day/Girls Night Out for Grandma and the little girls.

  They had no idea what the evening had in store for them! weekend 2

  The concert was amazing.  Very interesting, lots of outfit changes, unusual instruments and amazing harmony.
