One Accord

We have officially named our group "One Accord"!  The name is taken from Philippians 2:2 "Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind."  It's also a play on words because it sounds like "a chord" and the word "accord" means to be "in harmony".

Anyway, the Z. family put together a benefit concert and we got to play with a host of other musicians for Indian Evangelical Missions.  It was a very special evening and Elizabeth Z. did a fantastic job organizing it all!

Thanks to Evan S. for the pictures and the videos!
  
 Eden, Elanee, and Jordan look like they are suppose to be warming up, but I believe they are talking instead.  ;)

 The fun begins!!!

  The Z. family also put together a special dinner for all the performers and their families.  That was a huge blessing and very delicious!

After dinner we had our mic check...
 Yes, there is a story behind this picture.

This is serious business as I am sure you can tell. 

Eden is really serious too.

And then... the concert starts!
 Our opening number!

 Jordan introduces everyone.

 Singing.

 More singing...

And Eden gets a solo!

 Afterwards  it is time to meet and greet!

Judah having a great time!

Talking with friends.

It was such a special evening full of music, fellowship, and friends... all for the glory of God!

I will be posting some videos of the concert soon, so stay tuned!

Spring Fun!

Recently we had a fun day at our home when it was just me (Shiloh) and the youngest three children at home....  We did a craft, had outside time, had ice cream with lunch, and watched some music videos of ours.

Here's some picture of the little ones' Spring Craft.  They picked the heads of lots of dandelions outside as well as grass and leaves and then glued the flowers and such on paper.

Working away



Finished projects!

Choir Performance

Prior to Resurrection Day, we sang a Cantata featuring the story of the death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ!

 Shiloh, Elanee S, and Eden took care of the Soprano section... yes, in other words, the melody!

 Beware of Altos!  This was the smallest Alto section ever... with only four of us and there were points where one of us would be singing a solo and that left us with three Altos!

 Evan S and Jordan taking up the more manly side of things.

 Well, they haven't learned to sing in a choir... yet.

 Shiloh, Eden, and I were blessed to sing one of the trio solo parts!

   After going through the piano that had 19 pencils in it!  Someone was missing some pencils.

We played Celtic Prelude Music with our choir director to open the concert.
(Yes, Jordan is playing the piano... somehow he ended up ducking right when the picture was taken!)

 Performance time!

 I'm positive Evan S was only singing eight bass notes...
(Inside joke!)

 Singing the trio.
(Eden also sang the opening solo and did a wonderful job on it, but unfortunately we didn't get a picture of it!)
 I love singing Alto!!!
(I never really look that great while singing... I think I'm too expressive!)
 The whole choir.
Mrs. S. was an amazing narrator!  I'm so glad we talked her into it... or maybe it was the angels.  ;)
 This picture really captured our personalities...
Bethany J and Elanee S are posing for the camera, I'm up to some plan, and meanwhile Eden and Yvonne S. are going to give me a knock on the head!
 The whole gang and our wonderful director!
 Mommy and Mrs. S.  Two Godly women that I love!
 After the final performance, the J. family graciously invited us over for banana splits!
Um, how do you say "no" to ice cream?!
 "Can I pleeeease have some ice cream?"
Oh great.  How do you say "no" to that face?!
 Kathrina B. looking so pretty!
 The whole evening was delightful with laughter, fun, four-on-a-couch, and more!
This picture really captures a unique angle of all the festivities. 
 Having a delightful time with Heather V.

And then... this barbershop trio showed up for a quick encore!

Thanks to everyone who joined us!
