Sing A Song

Leightyn had a big and exciting morning. SPIRIT 106.3, a local Christian radio station, has kids come to the station and record a Christmas carol. The radio then plays the kids singing instead of its usual commericals.

For the past two weeks we have been working on "Hark the Harold Angels Sing". When we got to the station, Leightyn instantly turned shy. She thought that she was going to be singing with the church kids and not just by herself.

Leightyn didn't know what to think about the recording studio at first. She started the song out quietly but after a few seconds she started to enjoy it.

The producer liked her first recording of Leightyn but she ended up singing it again so that we could record her again on our camera. When we listened to the playback, Leightyn didn't know what to think. She just smirked.

Mom's Pics: Grandma's 93rd Birthday and Family Tree Tradition

On Grandma Nancy's actual 93rd birthday, we took her an Elmo and Princess balloon along with a Cinderella cake. Leightyn and Mylea enjoyed eating birthday cake with Grandma.

Growing up, we had a yearly birthday tradition in my family. On one of the kitchen doorways, we marked our growth for the year. My parents started this when we were very young and it continued until we were 18. When my dad and mom moved to Ft. Smith, the wall came with them. My dad turned the wall board in to a family tree coat hanger. Leightyn and Mylea have been added to the birthday tradition. It is really neat to compare their growth to me and my brother's height.
