More Guitar Hero

My house is strangely silent. No more company, no more rushing around to work on the living room, no more coughing kids. The boys are in bed right now, they fell asleep as soon as their little heads hit the mattresses. Wyatt has a new stalling tactic every time he goes to sleep. He will whine a bit and when we ask him what is wrong he tells us he has a "owie toe". Once I kiss it, he says "Tank you, momma" and will lay down to go to sleep.

I have the guitar hero songs stuck in my head. We rented a few other versions of the game, and I have to say they don't hold a candle to Rock the 80's version. I recognize most of the songs on the 80's game and it really makes the game more fun.

The other night my sister, Mom, and Dad came over to play domino's and Guitar Hero with Anne, Katie, Don and I after the kids went to bed. We would rotate domino players while some were trying the Guitar Hero so we all (except my dad) got to rock out. I think the night was fun for everyone and I was glad we got together like that while Anne and Katie were here.

And yes, I know that I have gone on long enough about what is only a video game. Seriously though, how many video games can take the respectable people in the top photo and turn them in to this...

Respectable people? :) LOL You are all my family, you are all my hero's, whether you have a Guitar in your hands or not, but you do all look adorable and funny at the same time playing the game. I'm glad you had a blast!
Love to you all!

I have to say I have never played it but it looks like so much fun!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I do have a serious case of anxiety leading up to tomorrow. My biggest worry, what do I do if it IS too much?! LOL! Throw them out the window?!

Well, I'm not so sure we were respectable to begin with but that game sure is fun!

I had such a good time with your whole family and I can't thank you enough for everything you did for me and Katie while we were there!

Thanks again and I can't wait to see you all again soon!!!
