Grandpa Earl's birthday song

Our Ghana area senior missionaries, along with our MTC missionaries, met together and had a nice dinner in our cafeteria as part of our Christmas celebration.   Since we had opportunities after dinner to put on a Christmas presentation, I wanted to make a special birthday celebration in honor of my dad, Earl Malmrose, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday this year on December 25 - Christmas day.  As a young child, I remember that every Christmas our family met in the living room at home, and my dad always played a special song recorded by band leader Spike Jones who's band played that song.  In honor of a special family tradition, I played the Spike Jones version of the song and mimicked the singer.  Part way through my presentation one of our elders decided to record it on his cell phone, a copy of which we obtained and have here published.  You'll enjoy it.  Dear dad,  thanks for the wonderful memories!

  1. What fun! I thoroughly enjoyed this! I always think of Grandpa Earl every single Christmas and loved your rendition of his classic song. Thank you for sharing your playfulness and for channeling your Dad. Merry Christmas! Love, the Peltons
