    The power went out in our house last night and when I gave my daughter the flashlight, the FIRST thing she did was try to do her own shadow puppets. She was even singing the song. I completely forgot we watched it the night before, it was adorable :)

  3. Dude! John – that was so awesome!! My daughter, Sammie, and I just LOVED it!! And that song is such a sweet song, too! Sammie says that she would give anything to be able to do that!

    I’m just completely amazed! :)

    Wow, you’re right, Terry Fator is pretty amazing. I’d say he deserves all the praise he was getting from the judges…

    Wow.. I the baby hand was the coolest. When you’re a parent you understand – those are the moments you miss as the little ones grow :(

    He’s amazing in the transitions though. Anyone can learn how to make a shadow puppets, but the real skill is transitioning from one to another so flawlessly.

    If anyone’s seen America’s Got Talent this season there was a ventriloquist who could sing just about anything and did so with so much charisma and skill that you actually got used to the idea that the puppet was singing. I bet we’re going to be seeing a lot of his youtube coverage soon :)

    Just googled and his name is Terry Fator, here are a few youtube links of his. One of the few acts I really thought I’d take the kids to go see :) His ability to get such range with his mouth closed is just mind blowing!

    Here’s a link to him doing “What a wonderful world” as well :)
