Something Likeable From The L-word.

Lubbock is a dirty word around this Aggie house. Saying it will assure your mouth a date with a bar of Ivory soap, right fast.

But recently, I came across this video...

Amazing. Such strong voices. Such pure harmony. Such a bunch of cuties! (Seriously. At the "rockets' red glare" point of the song, watch the itty bitty curly-headed girl on the end. Belt it out, sister!)

For that kind of awesomeness, I guess I'll forgive them for being from...you know, where they're from.

I read your adoption story, so beautifully written. I'm so glad you left a comment.

Your daughter is precious! My husband and his entire family are HUGE Red Raiders so this cute video has already made the rounds at our house. I gave up a long time ago trying to win any sort of college debate with my kids. I doubt if they even know that Baylor is in Waco, TX.

Wow, they're so cute! Stage mom feelings in full swing over here. =)

Hey, we just had dinner with the guy in charge of the children's home, and he told us that in a few weeks, those twin boys will be adoptable! I don't know if you guys have a file with them or not, but those little guys would be perfect little playmates for Sophie!

I know. I've listened to it over and over (enough so that Sophie said this morning, "No more little girls, please, Mama." Hee!) But they're just so GOOD.


Thanks! I meant to tell you, I love your interlocking hand picture. It's like Amy, Josh, and Silas's feet shot. So neat!

I guess I can try and forgive the Red Raider thing. (Shiver.) It'll be darn hard though! ;)


I know, it does have a major Stage Mom feel to it. In fact, I read that one of the moms is considering pulling her "cactus cutie" from the bunch. Apparently, she doesn't feel it's God's calling anymore. (That could just be rumor, of course, but I wonder if the group has gotten so "big" that it's starting to feel a tad eeee.)

The stage mom thing probably wouldn't be as severe if they weren't all dolled up. If they were just standing in church singing Amazing Grace (can you IMAGINE the chills??), it wouldn't have that pageant-y feel, you know?

Still. The girls sure can sing.

Holy crap!

If Simon Cowell says anything bad about them, I'll hunt him down and send him back to England.

(Note: I like England, don't get me wrong).

:) :) :) :) :)

Kritter Krit said...


SURELY Simon wouldn't go grumpy on them! (England. Not that there's anything wrong with it. Hee.)


Oh my gosh - the boys are ready! Wow, don't you know Sophs would have a FINE time playing with them(a.k.a decorating them with lotion). It would be one big, non-stop party at our house!

The only problem is - international adoption. Whoa. EXPENSIVE. And twins will add to that. Dang it! Still, maybe I should get back with Terri and see what's going on.

Thanks for letting me know. =)

emily said...

Wow! How old are those girls? They are amazing! I think they put a couple of the American Idol contestants to shame!

Kritter Krit said...

Ages 8-11. I know, it's nuts, huh?

Ok, now I feel bad. Your dirty words are so much more clean than mine. : )
