I will be posting the winner and book selection later tonight. We've been invited to someone's home for snacks and games (leaving in a few minutes), and I want to find and listen to each of your songs again, so I'll be up late! If you see me on your gmail chat, IM me! :)
Until then, since this is a musical theme, I wanted to show y'all our new purchase. Oatmeal Head has been asking for lessons for awhile, as has my hopelessly rhythm-less Little Guy. We've been scanning the papers and Craigslist and finally found a set on the latter really cheap. Scandalously cheap. So cheap we didn't have a choice, cheap. The previous owner is in med school and needed the space for some real furniture in her little condo. And we have space in our bonus room! Works for me. Here it is, in all its glory:
Yes. Those are bongos on the window seat. Oatmeal Head and Little Guy have been smacking those for awhile, trying to prove to us that they have rhythm and are drum-worthy. Goobers. Jury's still out on Little Guy.
Oatmeal Head thinks his drum stick is a guitar. Something is seriously wrong here. What am I missing?
Ah! He's figured it out. I knew that boy had potential.
Good mommy that I am, I posted ALL these lovely pictures for your viewing pleasure! And look Aunt Marguerite! I don't think you could get a noisier gift for my children than the one I just bought them! Were I you, I'd go for messier maybe?
I really will post the results tonight. And I'll be catching up on everyone's blogs in the morning!
Until I write again ...
