February 20th

So February 20th is a special day in the Call family. My dad, Brad, was born on February 20th, my brother Bradley was born on February 20th and 2 days ago our little neice, Ben's daughter, Reese was born on February 20th. We have three birthday's on that day :). We are so happy for Ben and Kristen and can't wait to meet little Reese. I told Ben that it must be fate to change Reeses name to Bradita since she was born on February 20th. He said he would run it by Kristen and she what she thought :) Happy Birthday to all!!

I feel so accomplished!

I was feeling ambitious last week so I decided to arrange a Primary song into a four-part women's barbershop piece. Some of you may know that I competed in a Barbershop quartet in High school. It was so much fun and I really grew to love that style of music and a capella singing. Since I got married I haven't been able to do much singing and would really like to find some kind of group that does Barbershop. Anyway, I took the primary song Beautiful Savior and made up my own arrangement. I have never done anything like this before but it was soooo much fun. I could only do it while Trey napped but I just finished it yesterday and am so excited. I used the Finale software to help me write it and it sounds awesome when it plays it back to me. I can't wait to hear it with real voices. Hope it sounds good!! I have already found 2 other girls to sing Tenor and Lead so now I just need a baritone, (I sing Bass). You know that wonderful feeling of accomplishment when you have created something new? I love it and it inspires me to do more.

Cinnamon Rolls

So, this post is a little late, but two weeks ago I made cinnamon rolls for the first time and they turned out great. They looked good and tasted good which I was very thrilled about because I was baking them for the bunko group I was hosting that night. The recipe I have is awesome and I swear is fool proof :) Let me know if any of you want it and I'd be happy to give it to you.
