I am posting a great memory for my Wednesdays Walk. I am thankful that my friend Lynnette has created this forum for many to have the opportunity to share their memories. I have enjoyed reading others stories, and was really blessed by the group of woman that have joined her for this walk down Memory Lane.
If you would like to Join this weekly forum.. Wednesday's Walk-I would invite you to visit her special blog page.. posted above.
About two months ago, I hosted an extended Family Talent Night- we called it
Silly or Serious!
My two brothers, my sister, their spouses and all of our children all participated. Everyone came prepared and with a great Spirit of fun!
We have a Bi- level living room, and so to prepare the "stage" for this event, I made a little trip to the local thrift shop, and purchased one pink, and one blue sheet. I then took them to my sewing machine, and made a Handy-dandy Stage Curtain. We hung it across a wire on the top level of the living room, and we were able to slide it back and forth in between each "act."
Ohhhh myyy!! It was so much fun! Everyone brought something different. We made some great memories that day. If you want to get closer to those you love,, let your guard down, and let them see who you really are. This was a fantastic opportunity for all of the children to see the adults having a good, wholesome fun time as well.
Here are a few of the fun moments we shared:
I started the Show out with a CHEER!! Can you believe it? ( If you said yes, then you REALLY know me! Heehee.) It was just the right beginning to get them all in the mood of sharing.
The children shared some of these things:
Poem/George Washington , Karate Moves
Joke Telling / Flute/ Jump Rope/ Singing
2 Man- Arms making Ice Cream Sundae Skit/ A Special Dance/ and Piano
Other skits included: A Curling Tongue Demonstration ( It was something to watch!!)
Personally written Poem and reading
Our Family closed the show with a altered version of the song from "The Adams Family."
( Remember this old show? Kinda spooky, I know,, but we changed the words to fit our family, snapping our fingers,, and singing:
Na na na nah (snap, snap)
Na na na nah ( snap, snap)
Na na na nah
Na na na nah
Na na na nah
They're funny and they're silly
Kind and even nerdy
They're all together purdy
The McCarthy Family
Their house is like a Zooo

The McCarthy family

This memory is special to me because Our Family Talent Show brought some Silly out of the Serious in us.. and the Serious in some of our more silly members!
You should try this fun idea - it is worth the memory!
