Musical Monday: New Shoes

This is my pleasant-natured, red-headed, so-easy-to-be-around son who leaves in 2 days to serve a mission

for our church.  He is cute and quirky (see how his collar is undone?).  He is a complete joy, and will be

missed tremendously.  But in the spirit of his happy personality, I opted out of doing anything sad and sappy

for my post today, and instead have chosen to do Paulo Nutrini's New Shoes, because it is one

of Elder Burton's favorites that he introduced me to a few weeks back.

Here is another photo, from our session last weekend.  More to come in future posts.

Kazzy's voice has been silenced by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act(see the details here). Sorry you can't listen to her sing directly. But send her a message and she'll try to work something out.

Fun song! The picture of all 4 boys makes me laugh! Oh, and Elder Burton, what can I say?

Great Song! Love the photo of all the boys.

What a fun song! I love it! Wow, I can't believe he's leaving so soon! Please tell me congratulations for me! I'm sad I couldn't be there for his farewell. He'll be so great!

I'll be singing that all day :) Love love love the pictures! (I saw them at Luann's site...yes we looked at all of them!)

Love the pictures, how fun! And the song is awesome, great way to start a Monday!

Juliana | April 5, 2010 at 11:56 AM

I love it! I am surprised how perfectly your voice fits into that genre of music. Fabulous. :)

What a fun song! I feel exactly that way about shoes :-) but not because Imelda Marcos and I are from the same country, lol! Your son sounds like someone who would get along really well with my own kids--- quirky and fun loving, although mine might be a little sassier :-)
Your missionary will be great! Extend to him my best wishes.

I listened to this song with my kids. They laughed and danced, it was a great bonding moment!!

I'm so happy for Elder Burton. He sure has a lot of people praying for him!

Oh, in 2 days??? Where is his mission call? (I served in Uruguay, so anything south of the border turns on my tear-ducts automatically).

As I've heard said before, there may be an epidural when you give birth, but when a child serves a mission, what then??? (I say this: lots of hugs & love & support & happy joy, knowing he's serving the Lord, no matter how much he will be dearly missed, he will come home much changed & even more AmAzInG!!!)

Just had Andy listen to your song. He asked, "Is that her singing?" Then he said, "She's really talented!"

Ha! Tell me something I don't already know!

Christy Burnett | April 5, 2010 at 8:54 PM

Nice! I am thinking of you and your heart sending your missionary off. Love you!

Lara Neves | April 5, 2010 at 9:13 PM

I am so in love with your photographer.

Love the song!

Congrats on the missionary...and hugs, too, because I know it isn't easy to send him off.

I liked the song; you did a great job.

I wish a pair of new shoes would really fix everything.

Lola Sharp | April 6, 2010 at 8:31 PM

I LOVE Paulo...he's cute, and , who doesn't love new shoes?!

LOVE your voice, as always and ever.

I can't believe you have a son old enough...sigh. Time goes by so quickly.

Luann | April 8, 2010 at 6:23 AM

This song suits you perfectly.

And what more can I say about that red head of yours with the wonky collar? He makes me smile, I love him to pieces and he's going to be GREAT out there.

Heather of the EO | April 8, 2010 at 8:15 AM

You are so amazing!!! I love it. And I'm sure it's hard to say goodbye, even for a good thing. i'm sorry you'll be missing your joy boy.

I am looking back through some of your old posts. This particular date is very dear to my heart. We sent my son to the MTC on March 17 to serve in Portland Oregon. April 5, 2010 we get a wake up call at 0630 with the most energetic young man on the other end of the line.

What amazing lives we lead. How lucky we are to know that our son's are the "Lords" for 2 years and that they will watched over. He has been out now for 5 months. Hard to believe that time still continues to move even when we wish it could stand still.
