Taking My Goal Very Seriously

I actually have been spending a lot less time on the computer recently. Hence, much fewer blog posts. Here is how I've managed to accomplish the task: I don't get on the computer as often. (!) ☺

Last week, when it was nice and warm outside, a nasty cold visited me which prompted one sweet child to leave this note: That one can spell! Wel l.

With A.I. in full swing, (severely infringing upon our free evenings for LHOTP viewing, but that's ok. Pa, Ma, Mary, Laura, Carrie, Albert and Grace have been around a while. It's pretty likely they will patiently wait for our return.) we held a round of auditions of our own. 7 contestants from all over the house came out to the living room with voices warmed and fingers crossed in an attempt to impress the judges with soulful renditions of songs like, The ABC's, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Hallelujah, The Wheels on the Bus, and Prayer for a Friend.
There were only a handful of pitchy notes, and it was clear that a few of the Idol hopefuls were nervous meeting their idols who sat in the judges seats: Bobby Dyler, T Jo, and The Lucky Clover, prompting knocking knees and several spontaneous tears of awe struck wonder and joy.
The judges kindly tried to put the contestants at ease (because every one of them was a rising star at one time too) by assuring them with sincere statements such as: "there is something really special in your voice, I can't put my finger on it, but it's special" and "I have goose pimples" (NOT because it happens to be -20 degrees either!), right before shouting "good lookin out!" as the golden ticket holders went running and screaming into the hallway jumping wildly into the arms of beloved family members there to lend moral support, knocking them straight to the ground.

Peyton Colorado is thrilled to announce that 100% of those who showed up to audition made it to Hollywood! This is one talented group of kids. Artists in their own right, every last one of them.
