Sweet Serenades

So...Elizabeth has been VERY into singing these days! But, rarely does she voluntarily sing on cue or on camera! Yesterday, however, she seemed to be in the mood--sort of!

As you'll see, at first she refuses and punctuates her point by shaking her head vigorously and adding, "I'm having a fit! Mommy can sing it!" (which...let's face it...if this is the best she does for having a fit, we are in good shape!) But, when asked again, she busts out with a pretty good rendition of "Down By the Station"--which I will translate for you below!

Down by the station,
Early in the morning,
See the little puffer billies
All in a row.
See the engine driver
Pull his little lever,
Puff, puff, beep, beep,
Off we go!

And...a few minutes later, she offers up a fairly decent version of "The More We Get Together"

Most of her on-camera performances conclude with the eager question: "Do you wanna see Elizabeth?" Like most children, she gets the biggest thrill out of seeing herself on screen!
