An Ebenezer. Our truck is one, at least for us. Like a monument to both a test and a provision from God to us. A few years after we bought it - and that was a miracle in itself, when we lived in Golden Colorado, we felt led to set up several ebenezers... like physical representations or memories of God's provision and faithfulness in our lives. Our truck was one of those kinds of provisions. So, when we decided to make our first video, we included the truck, as a memorial to Him and His goodness.

Comment on video

We want people to be able to comment on our video. Comments can be encouraging, and helpful to us for the next video we make. So, Braedon and I are messing with this site to make that possible. So, Video should go public soon. And, we're planning the next one now. No truck for the next one (we sold it.)

Sing Your People on You Tube. Finally...

Our Sing Your People video was filmed almost a year ago. Bought an iPhone, and a Mac for editing. But, more recently life has been busy... so, with some weekend editing sessions and some occasional nights of Braedon and I doing some drums, which means Braedon doing drums while I say: "Ya, that sounds good," we're finally done. Although, it seems like it's never really done. There just comes a point when you have to stop tweaking it. Call it done, and let it go. I've uploaded the video to youtube, and now I'm trying to figure out how to set up a site to collect emails for a contact list. Thanks in advance for signing up. New to all of this social media stuff. More time consuming than I'd originally imagined. That's OK, seems like it will be worth it... the best way to reconnect with old friends, make some new ones, and stay in touch with both. I'm liking Mail Chimp.

Our Truck

We've talked about it, and we want to incorporate our truck.  We bought it in Colorado when we lived there, and we're looking at selling it now.  So, we're hoping to remember it by filming it.  Making it the setting of our first music video.  So, we'll detail it, wash it, and fix a few things to make it look it's best.  Maybe we'll begin shooting this week

First video to work on

The song we're thinking about working on first is "Sing Your People".  We're all singing on this one, and we have this idea of a video that will require a lot of close up shots. So, the more people singing - the better.  This is the first worship song that I wrote so it seems appropriate for this to be the first video we make.

Oreo discussion

Good times reminiscing about recording. And lunch.

Deep Fat Fried Oreos

When I asked Aubri about her last experience recording in the studio, I thought it would be a good question to ask to put on our site. We were stuck with not much to do downtown. It was a great conversation, but not really what I was shooting for. She mostly recalled leaving the studio for lunch - of course...  We went to a nearby Chinese restaurant in downtown Tacoma. It was really good food.  We didn't plan on doing desert. We didn't expect was dessert. We didn't order dessert.  But lo and behold these odd things showed up. Weren't sure what they were at first.  Turns out: Deep Fat fried Oreos. Brought to us by the owners, as a gift. Kind staff. We didn't order them, we didn't see them on the menu, and even if we had...nah.   We've had pink peppermint Oreos before, double stuffed Oreos, even Oreos ala mode. Had birthday cake Oreos once as a family. But those were nothing compared to this new oreo experience. And because there are thousands of readers of this blog who are very curious about our recording experiences, we will describe the Oreos. To both of our readers  Beneath rainbow colored sprinkles atop swirls of whipped cream, lay the surprisingly good tasting yet odd, fried Oreos. The picture below is not of our actual Oreos, but an internet knockoff. As I recall, Andrea was the first to suggest, while chewing her desert, that she might be eating an Oreo after taking a bite of the unidentified object... We thought she was kidding at first. My kids aren't very daring when it comes to food at all, but when it comes to Desert, it's No Holds Barred. Now, Aubri would say that she is fairly daring, although I don't remember, perhaps she was the very first to bite into the strange creamy sprinkle covered whatchamacallit concoction.  Okay, now you know about deserts when we were in the studio.  Oh, wait. She also remembers making up back up parts with her sisters in the studio. No Doubt, with Oreo breath... (my words, definitely not hers.) I really liked the backup vocals they made up. Aubri does admit that Baelina made up most of the backup vocals. She and her sister Andrea mostly harmonized with her. This brings us to the end of Aubri contemplating her previous experience in the studio. And of her coinciding, remarkable Oreo experience.
