Snow, Conducting and Tablecloth dresses

Maybe you can’t really tell from this pictures but it snowed yesterday…a lot.  It only stuck a little though.

I had asked our very musically talented friend, Lacey, if she could come over and teach us all how to conduct music.  Last night our two families got together and she gave us a fabulous enthusiastic lesson.  She brought her own music, she had chopsticks for us to conduct with, and signs she made to show us 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4 time.  Once we had become pros at it (yeah right) she let each of us pick our favorite song and conduct while we all sang it.  Luke chose Silent Night, Isabel Christmas Bells are Ringing, Sylvia Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, I picked Jingle Bells and then Joey had to be difficult and pick some Dashboard Confessional song.  We then had cookies!
