First of all...Happy St. Paddy's Day! (a couple days late, I know...this blog has been in the works for a while...mostly because of posting video difficulties...) Hope you all have the luck 'o' the Irish! For those of you who know me well...you will know that Ireland is near and dear to my heart. Not only did I spend a year living outside of Dublin in 1999-2000, I also have Irish blood running through my veins! I'm a descendent of King Bryan of County Cork, Ireland! So I guess that technically means you can call me royalty! :)

So in honor of St. Patricks Day, my Irish heritage and, well, the Muppets, click on this link and enjoy a Muppet rendition of "Oh Danny Boy":

Animal, Beeker and the Chef (?) sing "Oh Danny Boy"

I took the kids to the St. Patrick's Day parade in St. Paul on Saturday (held Saturday b/c this year St. Paddy's falls during Holy Week. Worked out well for us, we wouldn't have been able to go today!). It was interesting introducing the kids to the idea of St. Patrick's Day...I'm pretty sure they just think we are all kind of weird...but they loved catching candy at the parade and picking out green clothes to wear today! But more on that another day...I'm still in 'catch up mode'!

I'm going to try posting a couple of videos. One of Angie counting and one of the now infamous "Everybody Dance Now" dance party! :) Here goes...

This first one is of Angie counting. It was taken a while ago...Angie now easily counts to twelve...she counts everything in sight...last night it was my teeth...thankfully I have more than twelve teeth, but for now that is what she could count up to! Saying her ABC's is something she loves to do too - but I'll save that for another video!

Angie Counting!

This second one is mainly John breaking it down to "Everybody Dance Now" by late 90's group C & C Music Factory! :) Take note of the strikingly Michael Jackson-ish dance moves and multiple appearances of the 'White Man's Overbite' move. It's also tough to miss the fact that John easily loves the camera - as noted by multiple occasions of him clearly SHOVING Laura out of the way (this was dealt with off camera for those of you who may be wondering!). Very funny stuff!

We have a follow up dance movie set to the tune of the Jungle Book theme song that incorporates all 3 kiddos equally - and equally as funny! For another day...

Signing Off!

I loved the videos! I am so proud of Angie for counting in English. I didn't know Juancho liked to dance - he's pretty good! :)
I can't wait to see you all!
