The beautiful weather today prompted Shortcake and Punkin to request both lunch and dinner on the back porch. Seeing as how I finally did my post-winter porch denastifying this afternoon, I gladly obliged. It was just too nice out not to soak up as much of the warm air and sunshine as possible.
Following our first fresh-off-the-grill meal of the year, Punkin spontaneously erupted in some after dinner entertainment. Luckily the camera was close at hand and she was undeterred by its presence. Prepare yourself for "You Belong With Me" as performed by an almost four year old with a nonexistent /r/.
Not to be outdone, of course, Shortcake followed suit with a slightly more accurate version (both lyrically and articulately). Upon filming she asked if I was going to put it on the computer for Gizmo's grama to watch. You're so very welcome, Jersey Girl & Auntie M!).
Both The General and I would like to send our most heartfelt gratitude to Mrs. Kodat, Shortcake's kindergarten music teacher, who has somehow lead Shortcake from a hypernasal singing style to one that is at least now bearable to listen to. My favorite part of Shortcake's singing these days? She's totally starting to put her own fancy spin on the songs with either her voice or her facial expressions. Cracks me right up.
Oh, what a day. I hate to see it end!
