5 years down, 35 to go!

We asked (ahem, I mean bribed with a brownie) the girls to sing "Families Can Be Together Forever" tonight for Family Home Evening. (This is a special night once a week in our church designated for families to spend time together and learn about gospel principles.) Here are the Hudson-style lyrics to this song:

I have a family here on earth,
they are so good to me.
I want to share my life with them through all eternity.

Families can be together forever,
through Heavenly Father's plan.
I always want to be with my own family
and the Lord has shown me how I can,
the Lord has shown me how I can.

While I am in my early years,
I'll prepare most carefully
So I can marry in God's temple
WHEN I TURN 40. (should be "for all eternity")

We were satisfied to hear that Charity has picked up the Hudson modification. :) Celeste is so convinced that it's supposed to be sung this way, that she corrected her primary teacher last year! Hmmm, I wonder how long we'll be able to keep this up!

(The end of the video is the funniest!)

Love the video clip!-a very sweet and FUNNY rendition of Families are Forever.

Well, I can see your dilemma with having such beautiful girls, 40 sounds good to me too!

Jill said...

Melisa said...

That's so funny!

When my little brother used to sing the hymn, Have I Done Any Good, he changed the words a little, too.

"Have I cheered up the sad and made someone feel glad"


"Well I chewed up the sad and I didn't feel bad!"

We still tease him about it!

LOL. Too cute! Good luck keeping them single for 35 more years ;)

This past sunday I was feeling sick before church, so i took a few pills. The pills made me super tired!!!! So, i could barely keep my eyes open let alone listen. So, that's why i seemed like that during Young Women's. I would have gone home, but i was thinking I had to teach that sunday. I didn't realize that on Fast Sunday the counselors teach and not the advisors. lol (i should have figured that out) Actually I really forgot that it was fast sunday.

are you going to enrichment on tuesday? my husband was asked to do the nursery... so i'll be there.
