My New Favorite Band

Growing up, my father was in a band. He toured the central Midwest and played Country and Western shows on weekends, earning the adolation of his son, who naturally named his father's band Desperado as his favorite. As I grew older and more rebellious, I immersed myself in Alternative Rock, soaking up late nineties bands like Guster, Bush and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. I spent time in college as a radio disc jockey and got to meet some of my new favorite bands and get a paycheck for doing what I love: listening to music. However, these days my music is mostly shared with my kids via my Ipod. I'm sure that one day they too will rebel against their father's music, and probably end up liking something other than what I like (Please not Nickleback... They can like Celine Dion, Jonas Brothers, Shakira, whatever, just please don't let my kids grow up to like Nickleback). But for now, they seem to be having fun with me. Here is a video of Malorie rocking and rolling, and Micah singing a song for his mom. Their talent level may not be on par with Von Trapps or the Partridge Family, but the kids new musical acts have earned them the title of my new favorite band.


  1. "1,2,3 micah james, micah james..." and "maaaalorie, sweet maaaaalorie" will be competing # 1 singles on the top 40 charts in no time.

    ps- rach, i love you and miss you so much it hurts.

  2. Love love LOVE the videos! Can't wait to see you soon and witness the rolling over and singing LIVE! :)

  3. I am in awe of the latest pictures. It is amazing how much they've grown since I first held them the first week in October and I can't wait to see them in December. Rachel, you're a FANTASTIC mother. For handling both the babies and Billy's airline seating you deserve a hearty WELL DONE.

  4. It was SOOOOO much fun watching the videos with Grandma Judy in St. Charles!

    Looks like you have the new Donny and Marie brother/sister duo! They are just so adorable! Glad Aunt Chris is there now, and I know Grandpa Bob and Grandma Judy can't wait to get there!

    love, love, love.
