Hey There, Mister!

Well, I had just about the best Mother's Day ever. You know it's good, if you have to take a four-hour nap to recover! Ha ha.

So, this is a song that I reworked a little, especially for Mother's Day. And yes, it's completely based on true events; you know it is. It was a lot of fun to do. I thought you might get a kick out of it. I also posted this one on YouTube, in case it's easier to view there.

Anyway, just wanted to share a little slice of the day with you. Thankfully, my neck healed up enough for me to be able to speak at our church's Mother's Day services today. Yay! I didn't hula hoop with the rest of the girls, but I was able to do everything else. (I'll be taking it extra easy tomorrow.) We explored some ideas from a child's point of view--hence all the playing. It'd make sense if you'd been here. :) It was such a fun and Sparky way to spend the day. Here are some pics, just for fun.


Our wings. Yes, I have oatmeal box jet packs. Powered by Oatmeal!!


Wings from the front. I want to wear these to the grocery store.


We did a big, group number where we played a playground hand clapping game. So fun.


Yes, we DID hula hoop in church. Wish you could see the rest of the girls. We even got the Sr. Pastor to hoop. Ha ha


Giant flowers. We kinda had a giant theme going...


Cardboard sword and shield--oh yeah!

Hope you had a Sparktacular weekend! Thanks for letting me share.

    That was remarkable. You have such an incredible given Talent.. If you could only see all the smiles you put on our faces when we watch your blogs. I'v seen the blog where you were walking with your father and I see you have his personality. But I bet a lot of your creativity and ambition trickles down from your mother. Glad to see so many people at your church enjoyed their Mother's Day. No falling asleep in that service. Happy Mother's Day to you.

    You have so much creativity it's even oozing out of your earlobes. What a GREAT song. Love the words! So sweet and so Motherly true. You also have a very nice voice and you play that instrument so well. You even had the audience participate with a Amen.
You're a natural showman. Excuse me, I mean show-woman. Want to hear more creative songs from you.

The Sparkguy needs to pay you to write an upbeat Spark song. I know a song was written but it was a downer and not well received. A Spark song where you get us to sing along a chorus or two. We can start our morning with it.
