Family Farm Movie!

If you look in my previous posts, you'll see one taking about how my family makes family movies. Now you finally have a video to see of it! Although this is just pretty much pictures to music, and we couldn't get the actual movie to upload to youtube, at least you get to see the basic idea. We shot our first one three years ago called "SAVE THE FARM" then one last year called "RIVERVEIW HARVEST FESTIVAL" and this years was not named yet:-) it premieres in the spring of 2015

One of the favorite things we like to do as a family is tie the movie around the holidays and celebrate it together as a family. This movie my Mississippi family arrived an got to spend thanksgiving with us! Enjoy!

Merry Christmas Performance!


Another fun Christmas performance behind us as we settle in for the holidays!

At the Stained Glass Theater, my sisters and I participated for the pre-show on Thursday, december 4.

It definitely took lots of hard work and practice. As the director said to us, "Practice does not make perfect. You could practice for something the whole year long but if you don't have a good practice then all the practices were not worth anything. Good practice is what makes perfect!" We practice for about 3 weeks and it all paid off in the end! But we didn't just GET there...

First there was deciding if we were going to do it. Then practicing. Then auditioning. Then getting excepted. Then more practice. Then sound checks. Then performance!!!

For those of you who aren't in Its True, let me explain where this all started;
 
In ancient times, (two years ago) Candice Gibbons, Chez Caudill, and Kelly Gibbons longed for a hip hop dance team that was appropriate, affordable, and close by. That's when it struck Candice that she could start their own dance team right there in Ozark! Of course, there were concerns like where to preform, where to meet, and how much it would cost them. after nights of hard work, Chez and Kelly came up with the name and slogan "Its True...God is legit and we all know it", and Candice wrote forms for the parents to fill out while she was figuring out the teams colors (in the video, you'll notice that the colors are lime green and black.) but that wasn't all they had to do... where would they get the dancers and teachers??? In February of 2012, they had a meeting with their moms at the Chateau in Branson, and lets just say along the path they went from having two young college teachers and only a couple dancers, to a professional teacher with over 24 dancers! Now the dance team is thriving. From having the weirdest semesters to the best, this was our fourth semester and fourth performance and we all enjoyed it thoroughly. Candice quotes, "I enjoyed the music, the teammates, and the shirts/hats/jackets. it is a wonderful activity to add to your week!" 

If you are interested in signing up for next year, (and have never done it before) please comment below the post and feel free to ask me or my mom questions about it.

Thanks for coming to the blog!

Everyone has a gift set!

Ever since i was young, my sisters and i loved to preform and make up skits, wherever, whenever we could! Almost every night we would put on some sort of costume and show mom and dad how much we enjoyed it. It wasn't long before we were put in our church choir, drama class, and dance. Now we are currently about to preform at the Stained Glass Theater pre-show this Thursday night! It shows me that when you work hard and do your best (and let God do the rest) you can accomplish anything!! So how do you get to a big goal in a short time period????

Step one: find out what your'e good at and work your very best on improving it.

Step two: Get into a program/sport/activity that will improve your gift set on a regular daily/weekly basis.

Step three: See what happens! By putting yourself out there you don't just give out flyers saying to let your be apart of something, but by trying out at the orchestra program -etc, you are setting yourself up to win. Who knows what God has in store for you!!


Have a meaningful day!!!

P.S. a past music video will be posted soon!
