Benefitting Easton (and maybe me singing)

Friday night we were honored to be a part of a benefit concert for our friends Tom and Joy and their little Easton.  If you can remember...they are the ones who lost their 3 year old to a drowning in Sept., plus have this new baby with round the clock medical needs.

Anyway, Jere was the MC and he did such a great job, if I do say so myself.  We got to perform a few numbers and we had such a fun time!  I won't lie, it felt good, for me, to actually perform.  It's been a LONG time since I've performed.

So, I just wanted to share some pics of Easton and a couple of short videos of me actually performing.  I know...snore...more video. But, in case you were wondering what I sound/look like performing, at least now you'll know.  I swear, I'll actually post something else soon.  Like, how we went and saw the Biebs movie with the kids today and I LOVED it!!



This is what sweet Easton looked like at the time of Jaxons drowning.
Read their story HERE

Here he is now....amazing difference.

Just love his huge eyes.

Ok, some videos, just watch, it's ok.




I know, try not to be jealous of my HAWWWT outfit, and how awesome I look(totally wore this dress as a costume when I played Ernestina Money in Hello Dolly).  It really is quite difficult being so pretty. hehehehehehehehe  So, it's not the whole song, which is ok, because shortly after this ends, I randomly forgot the words for a second.  But, at least you get the idea.

The next song is hysterical for Tom (Eastons Dad) and my brother Porters bell ringing.  Really....I love these guys.



Let me just put it out there.  I sorta want to die when I see this video.  This is NOT the best look for me, AT ALL!  I blame Julie, i asked her if I looked ok, and she said yes.  I shall never believe her again.  YIKES!  So, just listen, don't look at me and we'll be ok.

So.  There you have it.



Narcissistically yours,
Allyson

I love these videos! They just make me want to meet you even more. Seriously, some of these days we've got to get together. Maybe in like twelve years when I save up the money I can go to BlogHer or something. :)

I can't even imagine the strength Tom and Joy must possess, and the heartache they've endured. WOW.

I wish the end hadn't been cut off the first video. Remind me to tell you what Ben said.

Greg and Tammy said...

So sad I didn't know that was even happening! Hope they were able to fundraise a ton to help with medical costs! Your song Ring them Bells is hysterical. And PS - I think you look ggreat, so stop belly aching. :)

Ok so for the record...your outfit looked great. Was I sitting on the floor looking up at you?...NO!!!
You looked great so like Greg and Tammy said Stop you're belly aching.
Anyway it really was so much fun, and to see you and Jeer perform was the best. I loved every min. of it. Plus it was for an amazing cause.

i'm jealous. have i ever mentioned that before? probably not enough. i am JEALOUS. where do you get off having all the talent whilst i have none? i was riding high on the fact that i was all crafty and whatnot and dealt with having to bear totally rusty voice pipes. but then? you had to go and get all craftilicious on TOP of having an awesome voice! (and some killer performance skill. i am DYING because i have to get up in church on Sunday night to give a short report on one event from the mission trip.)
