Back in 2015, I had the extraordinary experience of being able to interview S. D. Smith, the author of The Green Ember series. Thinking over how expansive The Green Ember series has grown to be, I decided it was time for an article update!
Hey, there, What have you been up to this week? Anna and I wrote a pretty silly little ditty last week, and I wanted to share it with you! We named it “Rush” and took a crazy photo of Anna for the album cover. I hope you enjoy it! Rush By Anna and Ellie Cummins Lyrics: I feel a rush of emotion When I see that prairie grass motion […]
I’ve wanted to spill the beans on this for a long time, and here it finally is! For the last nine months, I’ve been working on a very exciting creation – my first full-length novel. Here’s a bit about it, just to pique your curiosity…
Hi, All! If you’re looking for a delicious cookie to end the year with, I’ve got a great recipe for you! They’re oatmeal craisin white chocolate chip cookies, and they’re perfect if you’re looking for a little variety from sugar cookies and fruitcake. 😉 (Confession: I may have lost count of the number I’ve eaten. The cookies are gone now.) Oatmeal Craisin White Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients: 1 cup butter, […]
Photo by Chad Madden on Unsplash Hi, All! A family friend asked us to do our own arrangement of his favorite Christmas song, “Pat-A-Pan.” (Thank you, Mr. Sunny!) He sent us a fantastic microphone and we set to work! Here’s our arrangement of the song, with Dad on piano and electric guitar, Micah on the penny whistle, and Kyle (a drummer programmed in GarageBand) on drums. 😀 I hope you like it!
Howdy, Folks, I talked last week about the “Christmas Showcase” we got to have at our house. This week, I’m posting another song from it! Anna did a fantastic job learning the lyrics and melody for “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.” She’s a natural! It was super cool getting to perform our song and see how the practice paid off. I’d love for you to take a listen! Merry Christmas!
Hello, Folks! I’d love to share a little music video the whole family helped me make. We practiced some fun songs for a “Christmas Showcase,” and decided that since we had them ready to go, we’d video them! (If you’d like to see Micah’s music video, head here.) I hope you like it! Have a wonderful week.
Hello, All! How are you? I’ve had quite an exciting week. Over the weekend, we got to attend Les Miserables with some friends at the Peace Center in Greenville. It was a breathtaking performance. The sets were unbelievable and the scene changes were flawless. I loved it. Since this was an event we got to dress up for, I’d love to share some photos of our spiffy-looking crew! Now, for […]
Hello, there! I’d love to share a song with you that’s been floating around in my head this week. The melody is gorgeous, even if the song is a touch melancholy. I hope you enjoy! How has your week gone?
