It's (a little) cooler this morning in Houston, Texas. Almost feels like it could be October, but not quite. We're doing great.
Leeland is two and happier than ever.
Maddux started Kindergarten and Bakri is in second grade. I am spending more time at both of their schools. So far, we are having a great school year.
My debut album was released on September 18.
It's really exciting and stressful just to try to get the music out there. But, when people hear it, they are moved and they tell me about it. I am very blessed.
If you know what to search (ie. my name), you can find me almost anywhere....iTunes, amazon, cdbaby, zune, bandcamp, noisetrade, etc. And, even next to Sandi Patty, at times. :-)
This was my look of shock and relief the day the album was released....ah
And, now, me and the family are headed to churches and events on my off weeks to spread the music to more churches and communities. Last week, we went to Crosspoint Church in Bellaire and I had the joy of leading along side of my friend and amazing talent, Aaron Senseman and the great worship team at Crosspoint. I am very grateful to be able to share the music in this way. Could I come to your church? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for booking information.
Trinity turned four and we celebrated with a family party at our church. We made homemade pizzas, danced and enjoyed celebrating Miss Trinity. She is becoming quite the little lady.
Leeland had his first haircut. Momma cut off the longest curls in the back, but I'm not ready to go short yet. He still has some baby curls.
Grandma (Moustapha's mom) loves to buy the kids halloween costumes. This year the Els had requests: Mario themed costumes! Toad! Princess Peach! Luigi! and Mario! We are waiting until Halloween to put on the mustaches.
Happy October, y'all!
