Sweeping Those Clouds Away

Evelyn has a deep love for music, especially the theme song to "Sesame Street." Who can blame her? Just hearing those opening lyrics of "Sunny Days, Sweeping those clouds away" can make me smile on the gloomiest of days. Here is a little bit of video of Evelyn dancing this morning as Big Bird made his entrance onto the screen.

Speaking of Sesame Street, I believe I have mentioned that we have watched several of the "Sesame Street Old School" videos here at casa de phillips. Before each episode on these videos, there is a disclaimer that they are not for today's preschoolers. Figuring such programs never hurt me in the '70s, I plopped our family down in front of them to enjoy a bit of childhood nostalgia. It wasn't until I saw the Muppet smoking in one skit that I can to understand the origin of the "not intended for today's preschoolers" disclaimer. Lesson learned.

Too cute! Tate's happy dance comes when he hears the sugary-sweet "La, la, la, la. La, la, la, la. Elmo's World." Sadly, I often find myself singing it too.

A muppet - SMOKING?! I can't even imagine, much less remember such an occurance. The good ol' 70s.
This computer at work wouldn't play the video so I can't wait to get home to check out Miss E!
