Let's Get It Started!

The last few posts have been real downers and I just wanted to end the week on a good note.


Marissa and I play music a lot during the day. I am the kind of person that, if it's just me and other family members or a few close friends, I will sing and dance to the music like a total weirdo. So you can imagine that Marissa has picked up a few of my totally sweet dance moves along the way. I love to see her dance and mimic me so I always try to capture it on film. HA! It is so funny when we turn a camera on in this house. Marissa goes berserk! I think she feels she has to over-perform or something because she turns into a wild woman. Not that she isn't already but she dials it up a few notches when the camera comes out.

That being said, the video you are about to see had to be shot in three different pieces because she just would not cooperate for the entire song, even though she had danced without interruption just moments before the camera came out. You will see that Jeremy and I have to constantly keep pushing her back into the view of the camera and prompting her to dance. Crazy kid!

Enjoy!




P.S. I just wanted to thank all of you for being so sweet and supportive throughout the last few days. Your friendship means so much to me. And you guys give some pretty good advice too! Thank you friends.
