“I have a cold and a cough…”

As February turned into March, we couldn’t help but wonder what was ahead. We remembered thinking last September when we had only one concert, “What’s going to happen that we need the entire month of September off?” September rolled around…and so did the chicken pox, explaining why God allowed us the month off to recover. Well, March, with no concerts has arrived, and yes, the cold and sniffles have invaded our home.

Sam was hit first and now Ben, Caleb, and Jayme have officially fallen ill as well. Mr. Sam, known for coming up with the most unique, slightly ingenious, but mostly silly little diddies, approached me last night with his “Cold and Sniffles” theme song:

“I have a cold and a cough and a sneeze and a wheeze.

I have hives playing hopscotch on my knees.”

*Poor Sammy was stricken with hives from, what we presume, a cough drop, and that explains the reference to hives in the song. (Unfortunately, the hives remind some of us of the chicken pox, so we hope they go away soon.)

All this comes about when we are trying to record our Christmas CD, so pray we recover quickly in order to be in the best vocal conditions for the recording!

Blessings and Joy in the Journey!

  1. Hopefully all you Big and Lil’ Adventurers get healthy, and I would love to hear the tune of Mr Sam’s “Cold & Sniffles” theme song!

    You better all be healthy when your favorite group is in our great state next Saturday. (unfortunately, I cannot be there)

  2. *Daniel: ha, ha, HA. Very funny. 😀

    *Hi Josh! Thanks for visiting! Yes, we are all hoping for a speedy recovery as well. Unfortunately, we won’t be attending the L5 concert either, but certainly will be wishing we were there! 🙁

    FYI, Sam is working on the next verse to his song, which now goes something like this: “The bristles on my toothbrush are turnin’ black, the cough in my chest is goin’ hack, hack, HACK!” (Don’t ask about the toothbrush thing, it’s a weird story.)
