What's in a Name?

Last night we were trying to think of a clever title for this new blog. I was leaning toward alliteration like many of you have.... so, Chamblee Shenanigans was my choice until I looked up shenanigan in the dictionary and realized that it had more meanings than I realized...I was thinking it was another word for activity, but it means treacherous or deceitful activity....not what we have going on here! Jeff was leaning toward a more religious theme...Chamblee Shoots, as in olive shoots around our table (of which we have many....and our shoots are having shoots!), but it wasn't that obvious and there are only so many words with the "sh" sound, so that idea died a natural death.

Trying to think of what goes on here on a daily basis, I came up with Busy Hands, Busy Minds. We are all busy using our hands all day and hopefully our minds as well. The title also reminds me of a Michael Card song from his CD of lullabies called Come to the Cradle. We have had Card's lullaby CD's for over 16 years--the other title is Sleep Sound in Jesus. Precious music. Here are the words to Busy Hands, Busy Feet.

Busy hands
Busy feet
Busy mind
Go to sleep
Now let go
Of your fight
Say hello
To the night

Close your eyes
Go to bed
Give it up
Sleepy head
Teary eyes
Shaky chin
It's a fight
You can't win

Busy hands
Busy feet
Busy mind
Go to sleep
Now let go
Of your fight
Say hello
To the night

Don't you worry
Don't you fret
In your sleep
You'll forget
That the work
Of the day
Is the business
Of play

Welcome to the blogging world, Anita! We really like Michale Card as well. I think you've inspired me to pop in a cd right now! I look forward to keeping up with you virtually, and look forward to meeting little Caedmon!

Welcome friend. You even have a cute LeeLou background!
If you want, you can make your font larger so those of us with weak eyes can read it better! :)
