EE sings Lorde Remix: “{Blogger} Royals”

It’s been a long time since I sang for y’all. Yesterday I rewrote the lyrics to a hit song, adapting it for bloggers and had my son Jude record me singing it. You know, just for fun. JUST IN CASE YOU’D FORGOTTEN I’M A CERTIFIED GOOFBALL. Also, I like embarrassing my older kids who are just MORTIFIED that Mom is so weird. Mwah-ha-ha. So, without further ado, I present for your viewing pleasure: “Blogger Royals.”

We’re baaaaaack! EE & Kristen Howerton “So Totally Relidge!”

Kristen Howerton and I had such a great time discussing politics that we decided to team up again and discuss another topic we care deeply about: religion! Our plan is to do a weekly recap about religious topics we’ve read on the Internet. Our first episode? Last week’s brouhaha surrounding Mark Driscoll’s disrespectful tweet about President Obama. Also, we’d love your feedback. If you’ve read something you’d like us to discuss, please share.

Can anything good come out of Internet drama/arguing?

As we approach another election season, I’m half-tempted to stay off the Internet entirely. My whole social network is morphing into a state of near-constant debate (and I’m including myself, here!). So much arguing! And what good does it accomplish? After receiving my no-cancer diagnosis a couple weeks ago, I’ve been re-thinking how I use the Internet. I wanted to share my thoughts in a video because it’s important to remember we’re all real people with real faces, real voices and real feelings.

Happy Holidays from EE & Family (is story time this crazy at your house, too?)

Somehow, this year’s family Christmas card kept getting postponed on the to-do list. I was too busy sitting around in my Distraught Pants making Christmas snow villages in fishbowls. I know, I know. PRIORITIES! Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

Anyway, yesterday I tried to share one of our favorite holiday traditions with you: reading aloud and telling stories in funny, character voices. So the kids gathered ’round and we made this video to demonstrate the blessed, quiet, ORDERLY perfection (ba ha ha) of our family story-time. Aaaaaand it turned out like this.

p.s. won’t you wish our family Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays from where you are? We always like reading the greetings of readers far and near! Leave your name and state/country in the comment box!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, peeps!
