Wimped out

So, last night we decided to have a family campout in the back yard. We had so much fun eating hot dogs, chasing dirty shoes out of the tent, roasting marshmallows, and eating smores (dragon food!). Then we all snuggled into our tent with just a little less room than we wanted, but hoping for coziness anyway. We curled up under our blankets and tried to sleep. The kids were restless, and Zoey was cranky from her shots, but eventually everyone settled down. Then the temperature went down too. Holey Moley... it's been a long time since I camped out in Utah, don't know how I ever slept there. I think the temp was in the high 40s, but some time around 1:30 or 2:00 am. Mom and Dad decided go ferry all the little ones inside so we could sleep in our nice warm bed. I know... we're total wimps!

Next time... Air Mattress and long johns will be in order.


P.S. I'll put up some pics later.

My little Gray Kitty

My Great Grandpa Holley used to sing a song like this, but I'm pretty sure that in his version, "Alas, my poor kitty was drowned."


Oh where, oh where is my little grey kitty?
I've hunted the house all around
I've looked in the cradle
In under the table
And nowhere can kitty be found.

I saw a boy trundle away a small bundle
And carry it down to the brook
Perhaps it was kitty, so cunning and pretty,
I think I'll go down there and look.

I'll take my hook and go down to the brook
To see if my kitty is there
And if I find that my kitty's been drowned
Oh, then I'll give up in despair.

Your little grey kitty has not been drowned
I've found her and brought her to you
But before you take, a promise please make
That you'll not blame the boys anymore.

from number 66

Anybody remember more of this one:

"Humpty Dumpty, diddle o day
sit in the corner churnin' away..."

Sung while bouncing a child on your knee.

In the interest of balance...

Here's a funny one.

"She did it."

I know I'm gonna make my sisters cry, but I've been trying to find any video clips I have with Grandma's voice. Here's the first one I've found.
