Karaoke @ the Home


I was having too good of a time that night to do a good job videoing it.
So why would I put a video on my blog that is over 9 minutes, and doesn't flow smoothly?

Because.....

1. The sound is good, and there is some great TALENT here!

2. I LOVE watching my Dad and Susan enjoy themselves.

3. Austin for some reason was in about every scene.
He just pops up everywhere. Sort of like Where's Waldo.
Really, I was amazed because I didn't realize how he was everywhere till I watched it later.
Now it makes me laugh. He is so cute!

4. This made a great activity for mutual (our church youth),
 and maybe someone from another ward will see this and want to do the same.
I love opportunities to mix the older generation with the younger.
I think its'a win-win.

5. There were many residents probably already in bed
by the time this took place,
plus there was a Bingo game going on upstairs at the same time.
But the ones who stayed seemed to enjoy themselves.



 




Thanks to my friend Allyson, 
or I never would have known about this fun performance!

Oh, and this was Allyson's ward, not ours. But it could be. I'm hoping.

So, the youth group from your church came to your dad's home and sang to entertain the residents? Who arranged that?

I think that particular ward in our church just called the retirement home and asked if they could come. And then my friend in that ward emailed me to let me know since she knew I would want to be there, too....since my grandchildren would be coming. :)

Looks like everyone had a good time. Yes, we do have some great talent and some great kids on our ward! Glad you could be there! I will let you know when Amber or Nicole are performing if I know about it. :)

What a great activity for the youth and for the people who live there! I'm sure the people loved having the youth there.

Our youth here go to our assisted living center several times throughout the year. They always come home so happy after visiting those sweet folks!
this is awesome.
Thanks for sharing!
