With all the social activities of life toned down and traveling taken off the docket, it’s been a rather quiet year here in 2020. And it has pointed up to me something rather startling, something I’m not sure I knew about myself until this year. I haven’t learned how to be happy. I didn’t know it, but for quite a few years now, I’ve been depending on outside sources to […]
Hello, dear readers, I can’t believe it’s December! We’ve already broken out the 24-year-old artificial tree, tuned in to Christmas songs on the radio, and queued up the Hallmark movies. (Micah and Dad are so courageous to put up with all the romance and snowy scenes. It’s a labor of love for them, those Hallmark movies!) Since I last wrote a blog post, we’ve added a pet fish to the […]
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 […]
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, 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?
