Joyful noise

I still haven't stopped laughing about this morning's performance.

I've said it before, and it bears repeating: there is nothing Caleb does that he doesn't do with gusto. And never has that been more evident to more people at one time than during this morning's rendition of "Hark the Herald Angels Sing."

It didn't help matters that the choirmaster kept encouraging her young performers to sing loudly enough for everyone in the back to hear them. My kids needed no such nudging.

"Okay guys, I need to hear you singing," she coaxed. "I can't hear you!"

"You can hear me!" Caleb replied.

Yes, yes she could. So could the people down the street, I'm pretty sure.

Not to be outdone, his fiercely competitive sister did everything she could to match her brother's volume. And this made for a performance that is still ringing in my ears hours later.

On a quieter note, Jacob and Levi performed a sweet version of "Away in a Manger" with their Sunday school class that proved to the congregation that not all of my children are out to steal the show.

But words will never do this one justice. You just have to see it for yourself.
