The Screamer, The Song Writer, & The Nose Picker

I came across this picture of my nephew and had to share... He's actually my cousins baby, but she is like a sister rather than a cousin, so he is my nephew =). He was a screamer when he was a baby. Not just a normal baby scream, this was a "I'm mad and I won't give in" scream. I don't know anyone that has a pair of lungs like him. He would go for hours and not give in even though you could tell he was exhausting himself. Now he's 1 1/2 and gives his lungs a little rest.

Let me start this next section with a disclaimer: I am not responsible for any offense taken from this point on *cough* Peter *cough*. Your actions were caught on camera, my camera, therefore they can be shown on my blog, *cough* Peter *cough*.

Here is another screamer. Okay, maybe not a screamer, but he can be loud. He plays his music LOUDLY in the house. He sings LOUD. He does not like to be shushed, I learned this the hard way. He got a gift card for Christmas and went shopping at Guitar Center, what does he buy? and amp! So he can be even louder if that's possible. I can say though that his voice is very soothing, at times. He writes great music and can play anything he puts his mind to. He has no professional training. This talent was self taught.

Ladies and Gentleman I bring you *drum roll* - My brother Peter

(note: in his defense, he was in the wrong key but just went with it. He actually does sing good.)

Okay, here's another one...

My sister is a type of screamer too. Maybe my nephew got his lungs from her... She has never needed a mic, she can belt out and people can hear her in the back of the building. We both sing in a trio at our church, I sing soprano, she sings alto. My mic is pushed up as high is it can go on the sound board, while her mic is not so high. I hear it all the time "Your so quite and your sisters so loud", drives us both crazy.

She writes music too and is in the process of making her first CD. Here she is, messing around with Peter on the guitar.

Are you done with videos? Well, since it's MY blog, here's one more... lol, =)

My sister thought that I was taking a picture and not recording. My brother got caught semi picking his nose, he wasn't too happy. You can tell this by what he says to me...

Jenster said...

Heehee!!! They are very talented! Wish you would show us a video of you singing, too!!

Mrs. Bingley said...

That's a great idea Jenster!

Lets see you sing "Como La Flor" Deb! :-) LOL
She sings spanish too. :-) HAHA

Really though, Deb is also a good singer as well. If it wasn't for her, there is no way I would be singing at the chorale at church! Thanks Deb!

Great Post BTW! I was wondering when you were going to put up those videos! Now if only I can get one of you.....

Cath -
I knew you would like it! Video of you on my blog for everyone to see! just what you wanted, huh? lol!

Jenster - video of me... nope, not gonna happen. I just expose others and not myself. haha
who knows... maybe someday.

Sonia - Aw, your so sweet! What do you want?? what are your true motives?

Jenster said...

Well Deb, it is your blog so you don't ever have to put anything on it you don't want to.

Now your sisters' blogs...

Cath, Sonia - I see this as a challenge.

Jenster, has anyone ever told you that you are evil? Evil I tell you!!


Becky said...

LOL Jenster!

LOVED the screaming baby picture! Loved it! It's too bad it isn't tagged as "The Scream" so that it will get in Google's search engine as such, and when people go to look up Eduard Munch's The Scream (the famous painting), they'll find that one, lol.

Mrs. Bingley said...


I am on a mission!

You better watch out Deb!!! You never know when the camera will be on you! :-)

Jenster said...

Actually, yes. I think I've been told that on more than one occasion.

I'm sure I have no idea why!

Shauna said...

LOL! Great picture and videos. Your family sounds very musical. You say your sister is in the process of putting together a CD? I'd be interested in knowing more. I'd like to hear more of her singing. And YOURS!!

The Daily "B" said...

Shauna - We are a pretty musical family. My brother plays the drums and guitar, my sister plays the piano. We all sing.

My sister is making a CD. She did her first rough draft recording a few weeks back.

My church has a network for our organization called ABN Global. Several other churches are now using it, but we've put it on hold during our move. Otherwise you would be able to see my sister and I singing on Sundays. (we are the south coast worship center link).
