Ward Talent Show

This is kind of embarrassing but I thought it would be fun to post it anyway. We had a ward talent show tonight and Savannah really wanted to sing in it, but I told her it was mostly just for grown-ups. They were looking for people with interesting talents or that played unusual instruments and some of you may know that when I was little I played the accordion. So the song Savannah wanted to sing was "On Top of Spaghetti", which is one of the songs she performed last week with her little singing group, and I had the idea that that would be a fairly easy, fitting song for me to play on my accordion while she sang along. Then it would also be good because she could take some of the pressure and attention off of my playing so I wouldn't feel so nervous or embarrassed at my meager skills. I totally had to practice for weeks and I was SO nervous about performing it, but now that it's over I'm glad I did it. I think Savannah really liked doing it and it was fun doing it together. She's such a natural little performer and it amazes me how she doesn't get nervous at all and she just thinks it's fun. She sure doesn't get that from me!

Here's the video if you want to see it. By the way, my cheesy little dancing side to side was totally Joe's idea--he made me do it! =)
