Shout out to the fam

Yeah, so have I ever mentioned that I come from an incredibly talented family? There's this seventeen-year old rocker chick named Maryn Jones who happens to have this cool band and who happens to be my baby sister. Go here to see/hear what I'm talking about.

And I should mention that my sister Brinna sang as an opening act for the one and only Bob Newhart.

Both Brinna and my ever youthful mom, Shawn, sing in smokin' cover and tribute bands, performing gigs all over the east coast.

My brother Clayton's musical highlights have spanned everything from flying across a stage as Michael in Peter Pan at age eight to working as a professional studio vocalist to kicking some major behind in All-State choir in high school. Last time I checked, he dreamed of being a high school choir director. He'd make a darn good one.

When my dad plays guitar and sings "The Birthday of a King" or that one shepherd boy song, it might just be the prettiest thing I've ever heard.

So my family rocks the music world. That's all I'm sayin'.

Actually...

Clayton made "All Eastern" that year in high school----that's only 350 kids chosen east of the Mississippi River!

And...what about you...
The funniest female in Utah Valley, and having one of the best "stage" voices that I have ever heard!

And having two fantastic,talented kids on top of that...

No, no, no....YOU are the amazing one!

Whoa, easy there, Mom. You have to be careful what you say. The other funniest females in Utah Valley might read this and challenge me to a funny duel or something, and I just do not need that in my life right now...

...and what about your husband? I understand he can quote pretty much every line of a few of the more popular early-nineties movies.

Thanks for the shout out, Hailey!

Heh... Bob Newhart. When I'm eighty I'm going to be like, (said in a shaky old-person voice) "You know children, when I was young, I opened up for Bob Newhart!"

And they'll be like, "Whatever, Grandma..."

Ijust listened to Maryn's songs!!! Oh my gosh. I had no idea. Anyway, I just created my own blog. It is caldaddydave@blogspot.com. Thre is absolutely nothing there, but who knows. I may get inspired and since most of my kids have one now, I have to get with the program.

Hailey, of all of us in the fam, you are probably the best actor, and your singing voice is sublime, though I completely agree that all of my children are gifted musically. When are we going to cut that CD?
