There was singing and dancing. It was a regular par-tay!

Last night was F-U-N!! We went over to Chad and Faith's for pizza and games! My kids have played Guitar Hero at their house and Daniel has played but I haven't had the chance.

Well. Let's just say that my first time? I stunk it up. I mean I don't think I hit one note! I pouted a little bit but then I totally redeemed myself in Dance Dance Revolution Supernova (now THAT is a name).

And then. They talked us into playing Sing Star. Let me start by saying that even though I am in the choir I am not really a singer. I'm a choir singer, as in I can blend in with those around me but just don't ask me to sing by myself. And it doesn't help AT ALL when the person singing with me is screeching like his throat is being cut out. Ahem. I'm not naming names but......

Can I just say that Daniel and Chad singing Run DMC's It's Tricky was about the funniest thing I've seen in, well, forever. Even funnier than when Faith and I sang it. But there isn't video evidence of that! And no, I'm not posting THAT!

And of course the kids got in on the action. There is just nothing cuter than my 3 yr old playing that guitar, his bottom lip sucked in while he concentrates. And then he catches you looking at him and gives you this melt-your-heart grin and just keeps on playing. Oh, I could eat him with a spoon!
Becca was dying to play Sing Star, but what does she know of 80s music? So Daniel sang Uptown Girl with her (bless her heart) for a while and then I took over. She's so cute with that microphone! I don't think we got pictures of that so you'll just have to trust me.
Here's a picture of her playing Dance Revolution. Yes she is playing it with her hands. Don't ask.

Overall, it was a really fun time and I SO needed a fun night with friends and family. It felt so good to laugh that hard. I've missed my friends lately! We have such great friends and I love spending time with them. Thanks guys!

Chad and I will challenge anyone to a dance off, play off, sing off, whatever. We should be on America's Got Talent. You can't teach this stuff you're just born with it.

I am truly impressed. Can you add sound bytes to the pictures? This I would pay to hear!!

Melissa said...

Love ya!

Meredith said...

I have to say we rocked the mic, old school style. A talent like ours is hard to come by. With Daniel (aka Rev. Run) busting rhymes and me, DMC or as I like to say Daddy Mac Chad breaking it down in the dance department we could very well win a local talent show.Say the burger shack at the beach? Maybe I'm thinking too small, who knows. We welcome any and all challengers.

I read this over the weekend but didn't have time to comment and you know I've had that song (It's tricky) stuck in my head since! heehee I was walking around the house singing it! Looks like y'all had a wonderful time!
Oh, should we expect to see y'all on stage next time we're at OL?
