Music Group

The boys have been attending a weekly music group in the home of a friend. It's just an hour once a week and it has been AWESOME!!! Miss Stephanie does a great job with all the kids and is especially patient with my in particular (I'll let you guess who!). They have learned such fun songs for Halloween and request to sing them every day. And the other day, the boys were pretend playing with their doggies and took them to "music cwas." So cute. She also introduces them to different kinds of fun instruments and movement activities. It has been so good for my boys to learn stuff like this from someone else...makes all the difference sometimes!
So, the week of Halloween the parents got to stay for class time for a little "performance" for the kids to show off what they've learned. It was so fun. I had a perma-grin the whole time. I did my best to capture some of a few pictures that are okay. Carson getting ready to have some fun with his sticks. He kind of choses to do his own thing most of the time. Like when they were told to tap their shoulders, he put them up like they were coming out of his ears and just looked at me and laughed. Hilarious Carson!!! This boy sure doesn't lack a sense of humor that's for sure. He's such a tease.
Carson took advantage of all the camera time. He was more focused on me than on following the directions. He wanted to make sure I was always watching him and every time I held up the camera, he knew it and instantly stopped whatever he was doing to say CHEESE!

Make a "T" with your sticks!
Make a straight line with your sticks.
Drum on the floor and keep the beat!
So good at following directions. Cade was the little model student. After he followed each direction, he would just look at me so proud and smile. It was awesome.
"CHEESE!" This was a cheese for another Mom trying to take a picture of her own son. But in Carson's mind, all eyes and pictures were only for him. Oh how he loved thinking that everyone was watching only him!
Jack-O-Lantern Cade singing a song about a Jack-O-Lantern.
Carson just held his up.
Look at Cade singing his little heart out! Makes me melt. Okay, so he was actually yelling out "BOO!" at the time.'s kinda the same thing, right?!
Creeping like a Halloween Cat!
" CHEESE!" Posing for a picture is way more important than stomping like a monster, which is what he was supposed to be doing at the time.
Cade stomping like a monster. He had all the actions to this song DOWN and was so proud of himself.
Still stomping...
Carson...always trying to sneak in some button-pushing, which is no surprise. He stood by the stereo and tv for quite awhile and just kept looking at me to see if I was watching him. The second I looked away, he would go for the buttons. Little stinker! This is him acting all casual (hand in the pocket even) Mom, I'm just standing here. No harm done. Why can't I just stand here?
I sure love these two boys. They were so fun to watch, especially because of the things they were doing to interact with each other across the room. They weren't sitting next to each other but still managed to have a couple full-blown conversations together. At one point, they even decided to trade sticks. Carson crawled over, switched with Cade, and then crawled back to his little square. Moments like this remind me why twins are the best. They are the cutest little buds and I'm so grateful that they have each other.
A big thank you to Miss Stephanie. You are so good at what you do!
They start some new holiday songs this week. Can't wait!
