Asaph Singers

Last year we started a Septet Singing Ensemble with the Smythe family.  After lots of work, singing, and laughing (hey, that's work too!) we just recorded our first audition video!

Here are some pictures that capture the fun we have "when we're together".

 Album front cover???  :D

 This one really captures our personalities...

Trying to make a Norman Rockwell themed picture.

 Talking, laughing, and having a wonderful time!

Jordan looks like he is holding Yvonne's head.

 Another good album cover.

Blowing kisses.  :P

Praise the Lord, we had a successful recording!  Oh, and Evan took the pictures, but he already knew that.  ;)

Valentines Tradition

It's a tradition.  You've probably seen this post before, but alas!  We've got to keep this tradition going!  We, Jordan's dear sisters are once again posting these lovely directions for him as we prepare him for his future wife. ;-)


What a blessing to have three sweet sisters to teach you how to make valentines. Here is the "Valentine Making Tutorial" that the girls made for Jordan since he would rather take care of chickens than make them valentines! Note that his Mother gets a lovely Valentine from him each and every year!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Click on the computer drawing to see the instructions up close!

Through the years:
  • 2009
  • 2010
  • 2011
  • 2012 - we missed!  How did we do that?  Don't worry, we verbally reminded him! :D
  • 2013- you are currently reading this post!!

Mazel Tov!!

Jordan is playing with the Jewish Community Orchestra later this month.  For the first rehearsal I (Shiloh) went with Mommy and Jordan to the Rose Schnitzer Manor.  The orchestra played very well!  I'm looking forward to their performance.  Read Jordan's post here.
