We love you, Elton!
So, we borrowed a movie from our friends, David and Tyler, of three episodes of the old Muppet Show. I was excited to watch the ones with Gene Kelly and Julie Andrews. My children (especially Allie), however, were much more impressed with another performer - Elton John! Of course, this is old school Elton John with very elaborate, colorful, and feathery costumes and outrageous sunglasses. At first I heard, "I want to watch the funny sunglasses man!" and then it evolved into his proper name. Then "Crocodile Rock" and "Benny and Jets" became one of our regularly sung songs around the house. Especially the "naaaaa....na na na na naaaa, na na na na naaaaa, na na na na naaaaa!" part - do you have any idea what part I mean?? The girls have also taken to searching for radio stations on their cd player and dancing to whatever they find. This is potentially dangerous, luckily they frequent the golden soft rock station. The really funny thing is, Allie can pick out Elton John's songs every time! She recognizes his voice right away and is usually right! She's a pretty big fan of Sir Elton!
