Sing Along

This is how Anderson harmonized with the family as we sang carols on the way to town yesterday:

Angels we have heard on high, I just wish that they would die. Hah, hah hah hah hah (etc. in place of the glorias.)

Rudolph the Red nosed Reindeer (Stupid!) had a very shiny nose (like my family!). And if you ever saw it (So Annoying!) You would even say it glows (This song is stupid!)

The first Noel, the angels did say (you guys are so annoying!)

Jingle Bells, my family smells. Oh I hate this song!

And yet, this morning he was looking at Space Station Nathan's latest entry for the 12 days of Robo-Santa. And singing along. In tune.
When he got to the Six Geese-o-matics he sang, "These geese-o-matics are just the coolest!"



Thanks, Nate. The rest of us just aren't awesome enough to bring the Christmas spirit to some people.

Ha ha--I was more than a little like Anderson when I was a kid. I remember singing "Violent night, gory night..." you know how it goes.

Glad he likes the Robo-Christmas posts! Merry Christmas, and thanks for all the great comments!

This is how much my boys hate singing. Jack--3rd boy, age 4, can recognize and write all his letters capital and lower case, but he can't sing his abcs. Tal and Cole said, "Mom don't sing" so many times I stopped singing for a couple of years. Thanks to John William's scores in Star Wars and Indiana Jones the boys are warming up to music and picking out their favorite melodies on the piano. And I'm hearing a lot of "jingle bells, bat man smells" this year.

Maybe I need to go to the goose-matic site. Does it help adults?
