  • Tea Party. The kind with cookies.

    A few days ago my five-year-old daughter asked me if I could bake sugar cookies. It’s a big job that makes a pretty gigantic mess. But she was begging me, and I know that ever since I had the new baby, she, maybe even more than the other kids, has probably felt invisible once in […]

There’s been a lot going on! I can’t wait to tell you about it, but first, right now I need to fill you in on some holiday info. Can you believe it’s that time again?? I know, it seems early for this. But I wanted to give you this info before things get hectic. It’s always nice to start a busy season off on the right foot.

All year long I get requests for sheet music, and usually I can’t be of much help. I don’t have sheet music for most of my songs. But I’m always happy when November comes around and I can say, “Yes! I have holiday sheet music!”

Are you planning a religious program, fireside, or nativity? Perhaps some of these songs might be of help.

I co-wrote a song with Tyler Castleton about Mary, the mother of Jesus. It’s called, “I Just Knew.” You know that song, “Mary, Did You Know”? Well I think she did, from the moment she laid eyes on that baby, and probably before.

Have you ever felt just a little bit sad that the only thing we ever usually say about Joseph, Mary’s husband, is that he was not the real father of Jesus? I’ve thought a lot about him and who he must have been in order for God to choose him to raise Jesus. I wrote a song about it called, “The Man Behind The Scenes”.

Want to hear my favorite arrangement of The First Noel? It’s the arrangement that Tyler Castleton did for my Christmas album.

Christmas has a lot of symbols. Trees. Wreaths. Berries. Deer. Elves. Santa. My favorite has always been the Star. I wrote a song about it called, “One Star”.

You can find sheet music for all of these songs, and even a performance track for “I Just Knew”, over on my music page. Here’s the link. Gifts sheet music

If you’re interested in this, I often share excerpts from the following amazing Jeffrey R. Holland talk when I share these songs in a religious setting. This is my favorite Christmas message of all time. I love how it personalizes the people and events we’ve heard about so many times.

Maybe Christmas Doesn’t Come From A Store

Not a performer? Just kick back and let me sing the songs to you. You can find all of those songs and several more on my Christmas album, “Gifts”. I’m offering it this year $5. This is an amazing deal for a full length album. You can only get this deal directly from me or my website. You can find the album on iTunes but it will be full price there. When you order it from cheriecall.com the shipping is free.

If you need 10 or more “Gifts” albums, I can make it $3 each. To get that deal, go directly to paypal and send a payment to callcherie@gmail.com, and make sure you include a note specifying how many CD’s and where I’m sending them. If you’re ordering over 20, I’ll bet I can give you an even bigger deal. Contact me directly at callcherie@gmail.com and we’ll work it out. I can also include copies of my new album, “Homeless Songs” in the packages I send from my home. The price on those is $10 each if you’re ordering them with Christmas albums. Shipping is free on those packages. And I’d love to sign the CD’s for you.

Speaking of my new album, if you have a music lover on your Christmas list, consider getting them a copy. Or you could drop a subtle hint to a friend that you’d love one of your own. For individual copies of those, the easiest way to get it is at https://cheriecallmusic.bandcamp.com You can even listen to many of the tracks there to see what you think.

But wait! (Did I sound like an infomercial guy there?) Are you saying you’d like one $10 Homeless Songs and one $5 Gifts? Just go to paypal and send $15 to callcherie@gmail.com. Let me know where to send them and who to autograph them for. Put “Combo Deal” in the notes. Don’t like all this newfangled paypal business? Send a check to Cherie Call, P.O. Box 281, Spanish Fork, UT 84660. Shipping is free.

Whew! That’s a lot of info. I have even more info to bestow upon you about all of my upcoming holiday events! Super excited about that and when it is all finalized, you’ll be the first to know.

Have a happy Halloween and get ready for an amazing Fall and Winter. See you soon!

A few days ago my five-year-old daughter asked me if I could bake sugar cookies. It’s a big job that makes a pretty gigantic mess. But she was begging me, and I know that ever since I had the new baby, she, maybe even more than the other kids, has probably felt invisible once in a while. She’s my second child of four. She’s a peacemaker, and usually just wants to make everyone happy. Parents can’t help but love that. I was a kid like that. But kids like us aren’t usually squeaky wheels, so that’s when some invisibility accidentally happens. I decided I’d better make those cookies. But then, just after that, she said, “And then can we invite over all of our friends for a tea party with the cookies?”

In a split second it all flashed before my eyes. I saw our house. It was sparkling clean and lemon fresh in my vision. Streamers in pink and purple scalloped the ceiling, and beautiful balloons and fresh flowers adorned every corner. In the kitchen there was a magnificent table, set with a vintage tablecloth, real ceramic quirky looking mini tea cups and plates, and an eclectic spread of adorable snacks. My cookies were intricately frosted with cream cheese frosting in every color of the retro rainbow. There were tea sandwiches with bread dyed in pastel colors, stuffed with fancy cheeses or cucumbers or Nutella. The doorbell rang, and a dozen miniature Zooey Deschanels filed in, carrying the lacy invitations they had received in the mail a week before.

The vision became hazy and through my twitching eye I saw our real kitchen, covered in apricot guts. Our apricot trees were full of ripe fruit and we had been spending several days canning and drying. I tried keeping up on the mess but the floor had sticky patches that day. And the sink was full of dishes, and there were toys all over the house. “No,” I said. My daughter’s shoulders slumped. Then I said, “Wait. Okay. We’ll do it. How about just a few friends?”

Joe whipped out a shade tent in the backyard, and the kids brought out their toy table and covered it with a small white tablecloth. I found some paper plates. Joe got out our cheap stemmed glasses which we filled with the last of the powdered lemonade. The kids frosted the cookies themselves. They were unevenly frosted and lopsidedly covered in sprinkles. They were delicious. Two friends came over, and all the kids were all smiles. They had a great time. I smiled, too. I was glad that I didn’t say no to a tea party that day, just because I wasn’t capable of making it Pinterest worthy. My kids didn’t care. And they’re the ones who needed it most. I guess the moral of the story is that if you decide not to do something because someone else has probably already done it better online, you’ll probably never do anything at all. IMG_3249

On a mostly unrelated note, I’m posting a video today of a clip from a really fun evening of my life. In March, we had an album release concert for my new album, “Homeless Songs”. My favorite song on the record is “The Fall”, which I wrote for my husband, Joe. Maybe how this ties in with this blog is that this was the last song of the concert, I was a month away from having a baby, and I had already been singing for an hour and a half. I was sweaty and my breath support was gone. But I’m posting it anyway because I love the song and it was a great show. I hope you enjoy. If you do, please share the video with your friends, and consider picking up a copy of the new album. Here’s that video. The Fall: Cherie Call Live, March 18, 2014 Enjoy!
