In case you have not noticed.
Many years ago, my sister Cheri and I performed the Sisters routine from White Christmas for my mom on Mother's Day, as it is one of her favorite movies. We were like 10 years old and it was cute. For the past 20 years, my parents (dad in particular) have been begging us to do it again. We have declined, because, well, we do have some pride.
Did have some pride.
We finally decided the time was ripe for a return to our glory days of song and dance stardom. Since our younger sister, Dani, is now an actual professional actress and singer, we thought it should become a trio rather than a duet. So, this insanity was born.
We wanted to have it ready for Dad's birthday, and we tried to film in October when I was in Memphis, but we were riddled with problems. I forgot my dress, Joey couldn't be there to film, the camera did not work, etc. So, we tried again this past week over Thanksgiving, deciding a live performance would be better than a taped one anyway. And I remembered the dress this time.
So, dignity offered up on the altar of parental love, here we go. Dani handmade the fans, we are wearing the bridesmaid dressing from Dani's faux wedding this summer (she borrowed Christy's), and though you may be inclined to think otherwise, we did actually rehearse and choreograph this ridiculous routine.
I cannot believe I am actually sharing this for people to see. Ugh.
Fun times. Here are some photos:

|how cute is our dad??|
And here are the photos from our first attempt at filming this back in October in an actual theatre (where Dani was doing a play, so we snuck in during the daytime):
|makeup - we are total professionals|
|Megan (also our sister) worked the camera, that did not actually work, turns out|
|see, not as cute without the right dress. right?|
Dad, we love you. More than our own dignity, pride, and self-esteem, we love you to pieces!!!
