Bubble baths and What are you listening to?

Had to go to Wal-Mart this morning for stuff. Always need more of that. . .and Mr J found some Disney Cars bubble bath. $1.50 for bath time fun isn't too bad, so it made its way into the cart. Now it is right after lunch and the tub is being filled with water and "revved up Raspberry" Cars bubble bath! Life is sweet. I don't know how he will handle all day kindergarten next year because I know they don't let you take bubble baths in the middle of the day. Bubble baths are sweet!

Another sweet thing is music. We love music in our house. There is always a wide variety of it playing throughout the house--on the piano, on the keyboard, on the stereo, computer, MP3, ipod. . .good stuff. We had our FHE lesson last night on listening to good music. These are some of our favorites we've been listening to lately.

Jen--I discovered Jon Schmidt's "Love Song meets Love Song" which is a piano/cello instrumental piece combining Taylor Swift's "Love Song" and Cold Play's "Viva La Vida." I LOVE this! I just hit the repeat button, play it really loud, and it is amazing the stuff I get done!

Ben--he has a much broader appreciation of music than I do. He likes everything I like plus a whole lot more. He is a big fan of the amazon $.99 or free album of the day. Some of the stuff he downloads I look and him and think "You like that?" Much, much, MUCH broader appreciation of music than I have, but the world would be really boring if we all liked the same thing, right? He's been enjoying Rodrigo Y Gabriella's "11:11"

Miss A usually has either High School Musical playing or Taylor Swift. Pretty predictable for a tween, and I can handle those too.

Miss O is always listening to Disney's The Lion King Broadway musical soundtrack. We took the girls to see that show last year (it is amazing! Loved it!), and she loved it. She got the CD from Miss A for her birthday, and it is by far her favorite.

Miss E almost always has her headphones on walking around the house. Her MP3 players batteries need to be charged every other day it seems because she uses it so much, but Miss E is not listening to music, nope, she is an addicted audio book listener. I don't think there is any room for music left on her player because she has it so full of books she likes to listen to. Her current read is Patrick Carman's The Land of Elyon series.

Mr J has been loving Sandra Boynton's "Dog Train" book and CD. That shouldn't surprise anyone--A CD with music about trains? He is all over that! It does have a song on it called "Banging on Pots and Pans" so he had to get his own pot and pan band to play along the other day. Oh yeah, banging on pots and pans. . .love that music!

So, what are you listening to?
