Christmas Music

26 Dec

I haven’t blogged in the LONGEST while. Making a resolution (early) to get back with it in 2013.  🙂

I spent a lot of Christmas Day laughing at the boys. Joshua received his first present and thought that was it.  The boy refused to acknowledge or open another present for about 20 minutes. We’d give him a wrapped gift and he’d push it away and say “Noooo”, and return to playing with his ABC apple (courtesy Auntie Leyne and Uncle Claudius).  It was hilarious. Sharlene Ottley said I should have taken the other gifts and re-gifted them at birthdays (it’s a great idea – I don’t think he has any idea what he got, so I’ma look around this evening and see what I can hide – lol).

You are probably wondering where the music is in this post. It’s right here. :-). The boys like to play instruments during worship. Here is Jalen (with some help from Joshua) adding a strong calypso beat (all on his own, mind you) to Angels We Have Heard On High.

    Lol @ Jermey. That might be considered heresy in some circles. We gotta get him and Kera to do a duet.

    It would be my honor to facilitate the collaboration of Jalen, the percussionist extraordinaire, and Kera the accomPIANIST!

    And I would consider it an honor for those circles to consider me a heretic. (Matt. 5:11)
