Ella Says the Darndest Things, Episode 3

My Ella is the sweetest, cutest thing. I so love her.

Ella loves to sing. (I wonder where she got that from?) Last school year (Kindergarten) she learned the song "I've Been Working on the Railroad". She and Rohan have been singing this song into our big box fan making their voices wobble. Actually it's EXTRA wobbly because last night the fan fell and broke a blade off which makes it uneven in it's "beat". Anyway, back on track...

We all know the words to this song...

I've been workin' on the railroad all the live long day.
I've been workin' on the railroad just to pass the time away...

Then it goes off into the part about Dinah blowing her horn and Ella sings the following part like this:

Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah.
Someone's in the kitchen I knoooowww-
Someone's in the kitchen with Diiiinaaahhhhh
Strummin' on the Ole' Man Joe.

Just in case anyone doesn't know the real words, it's "strummin' on the ole' banjo.

She just plain cracks me up!

Gotta' love the crazy things kids say (of course, when it comes down to it how many of us sing the wrong words to songs).

John used to sing "Love One Another" this way... "by this shameno..." He doesn't know what he thought a shameno was, but it was a lot cooler than the real words 'shall men know'. His friends tried to correct him, but John knew he was right. He also thought you were "death" if you couldn't hear.

Too cute! Justin used to pray that the food will strengthen and nourishen us...we won't even touch on the commentary that is on the whole repetition in prayers issue... it was hard not to laugh during the prayer sometimes
