Send It On Down

Sweet Singing

Alayna loves to sing and worship at church! All those who know her can testify to the truth of this statement. Andrew and I really get tickled at her version of the songs we frequently sing. After I've heard her version I listen the next time we sing it at church and I can totally see where she's coming from with her interpretations. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

The Sound of Music

Alayna, Me, Aunt Sharon, & Grandma Bivens went to see the Sound of Music at the Wichita Theater last Saturday. It was a great performance! Alayna has loved the video since she saw it a while back. Although they stayed pretty true to the story there were a few discrepancies. The first major one was very early in the show. They had Maria singing "My Favorite Things" in the abbey with the Mother Abbess. I knew this was not going to sit well with Alayna who pays much attention to details. Sure enough she looked at me and said "Mom we need to let them borrow our video so they'll know how the parts go". It also concerned her that Maria didn't look quite like "Maria". Over all we did enjoy the show very much and look forward to attending more in the future.

April Fool's Fun

We woke up Sunday morning and started to get ready for Sunday School as usual. I always turn on the radio and in doing so I found out that it was April Fool's Day. I immediately began to think of who we could "get". We decided to call the Elms and Let them know that we were all terribly sick and would not be able to make it to service this morning. This was good but what made the deal a little sweeter was the fact that Andrew was supposed to teach the Keenagers class this morning for the first time. He told Bro Elms and then hung up and came to room to tell me how it had gone...they bought it hook line and sinker. We laughed for a minute and then I said you better call back now because Dad will be getting someone else for that class pretty quick. When he called back he had the speaker on and Mom answered. She began to ask questions full of love and concern. Andrew shot back with answers so quickly I was nearly hysterical. He asked to speak to Dad and when He got on the phone we both shouted APRIL FOOL'S. He was got! I think his exact words were " turkeys". He said he had just reached for the phone to call someone to take care of Sunday School. That was close. I called my Mom to try and get her and she didn't fall for it because she herself was trying to figure out something to do to my dad. I told her about the illness that had recently hit our family and it became contagious. She called my dad and told him of her sickness and hung up. He was on the other line with a preacher friend of his and they were just beginning to pray for mom when she called him back and made him aware of the date. We had so much fun!!! Alayna had heard all our talk and laughter surrounding the phone calls as I was getting her hair ready for church. Later that morning in morning worship we were singing the chorus "My God is Really Really Good". Alayna asked me to bend down I did and she said "Mom why are they saying God is April?" Needless to say we had a humorous April Fool's Day, we hope you did as well.

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Mom I hope you have a wonderful day! I wish we could be together today to celebrate, but we'll just celebrate whenever we do get together. You are not only a wonderful Mother but also my friend. I love you! Happy Birthday!!!
