Practise is Serious Stuff

video

Carmen and Chloe sang When Joseph Went to Bethlehem in Sacrament Meeting today. We can't bring recording devices in to church, but here is a practise from earlier this morning. The real performance was improved by sincere smiles throughout the piece (and a little giggle from Chloe) as they stood before the congregation, thanks to a cute 2-year-old who called and waved to them from where he was sitting with his parents. (Thanks, Peyton!)

Then, when they went to their children's meetings, Chloe presented Sharing Time to the rest of the Junior Primary children. She asked to do it for about a month until the Primary President agreed to help Chloe teach the rest of the children as a Faith in God goal. (I fear the initials CEO have made a deeper impression on our baby than we ever intended!)

That was darling and so impressive that Jaclyn was playing for them. You have a talented group of daughters for sure.

I love their dresses!

And just how have I never noticed that Chloe's initials are CEO? I'm a little slow.

While the singing was lovely, I think the thing that struck me most was how very grown-up Jaclyn looked as she played the piano.

Haven't listened to it yet, but JUST the other day I realized it was CEO. I always sing Cho -E- O -E -O E to her but I just got the BOSS initials. I just love that she wanted to teach!

Ah Barb, that is the greatest when you see a self-contained family group. How fun to have disciplined all the girls enough to serve in this capacity. Kudos.

They need an extra paragraph in the Primary handbook about that FIG requirement because getting Primary Presidents to comply is most aggravating! Send Chloe my way, I'll take a Primary CEO any day.

And the singing and piano playing? So talented! But I know none of that comes about without a talented mother grinning behind the camera, so well done!

Beautiful Girls!!!!! I loved it. (all 3 of you) Camille will love it too when she sees it. She loves that song.

I liked Jaclyn's gorgeous boots working that pedal. What style!

This has long been one of my most favorite Christmas songs.

oh, this reminds me of playing and singing with my sisters (only we were sporting patchwork and smocking back in those days...)

family music just warms my heart. keep it up, girls!

We're sorry to have missed the live performance, but it is still a treat to see the recording. In my opinion the matching dresses were the icing on the cake! Oh, and yes, the boots are SO great!
