“You Bled” – Magnificent…!!

6 Jan

I Have JUST discovered (…and bought… *ooooops*) this new album.
I think I may be in love…

You bled your heart out
Now I feel love beat in my chest,
How Wonderful

You gave your beauty
In exchange for my ugliness,
How Wonderful

You left your perfection
And embraced on our rejection oh

How Marvelous
How Boundless
Is your love
Is your Love

How Wonderful
Sacrificial
Is your Love for me

You put on our chains
Sent us out through the open door,
How Wonderful,

You took our sadness,
Crowned us with joy and real peace
How Wonderful

You left your perfection
and fought for our redemption oh
How Marvelous
How Boundless
Is your love
Is your Love

How Wonderful
Sacrificial
Is your Love for me

Yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me,
How Wonderful
Yes Jesus loves me
This is love
You gave yourself…
(repeat)

Irrisistible

I simply could not resist videoing Ben saying the word ‘cucumber‘ just to be able to hear his own delicious version of it in years to come!! Who’d have thought he’d come up with such a complicated, convoluted tongue-twister?!? However it doesn’t seem to bother him, and I think it’s the cutest thing ever. That includes the munching. Even though I personally hate cucumber, I still thought is was worth posting…

And here we have: a clown in a mirror… I think the rest speaks for itself…! Again, this demonstrates language in progress: so thrilling, so thankful.

…speaks for itself. Surely.

>Hamster Dance

28 Nov

>Here’s another priceless one…
The Hamster Dance is Sam’s current favourite ‘tune’, along with Crazy Frog. Yep, precisely the kind of music that will drive any grown-up insane. Still, he loves it, and his dancing is hilarious – so it’s well worth the watch!

Just one word of warning though: some of you reading this blog might not particularly like the ‘noise’ Sam is dancing to, and the beat of this tune is particularly fast, crazy, aaaand annoying – so please mute your players before pressing the ‘play’ button… if you see what I mean!!

>Hopscotch

>Thomas is off school today, as he is supposed to be poorly… Can you really believe he’s poorly??!

Isn’t it weird how my kids sometimes seem to be at their funniest when they’re unwell?!? Here he is playing on the hopscotch rug in Sam’s room, and it’s an ideal opportunity for him to practice his numbers… He loves counting, but so far we haven’t graduated to two-digit numbers. Yet. Oh well, he’s got the rest of his life to carry on learning ; let’s just hope he carries on playing too :o) …

Ben discusses geography

Isn’t my little boy making progress with his speech?! I love the way he sees pictures of stones and thinks “cake”!! He’s such a scream… 🙂

This was taken at about 23:30 last night; Ben suddenly got up, and decided he was wide awake and wanting a chat. Please note this is the same child who had woken up with a raging temp that same morning, and spent the majority of the day curled up in a ball on the sofa, watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang…

Needless to say he was well enough to go to nursery this morning. Just as well, seeing as it’s my turn to be all curled up today 😦

Dancing to Coldplay

6 Oct

Get It Down; 31 for 21

http://www.youtube.com/get_player

Most of you should recognise this song as Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida”. Thomas calls it “dom” (something to do with ‘drums’??) and whenever it comes on, it sends him into a wild, delighted frenzy. Here he is fairly restrained. As you can see, he has choreographed his own little dance for it, and I think the intensity of his concentration to get each move to fit with the rythm and the mood of the song is well worth an Oscar – or whatever the equivalent is in dance and drama…! There is a mini-moment of mild panic around the 1 min 40 mark, when he starts dancing enthusiastically on the sofa, but to his credit, his balance doesn’t fail him once (so do please ignore my anguished noises). I would also like to point out his nearly perfect ‘squat’, shortly after he has leapt off the sofa: if my squats were that good, I’d have legs of steel…
