Proud Daddy

July 17, 2011

Ruby has made her daddy proud.


Can you tell what’s in her hands?!

The Youngest Rock Band Member

March 20, 2008

I do believe I’ve found the youngest Rock Band rocker the entire gaming world has thus seen. The favorite toy at our house of this cutie, little girl is our Pink XBox controller. No lie, need I say more?!


I would like to introduce you to Karis (who has just woken up from a nap, hence the crazy hair). Not to be confused with my sweet and precious Karis, who is my niece. This other sweet, little cutie is my good friends baby. She’s about to turn a year, which I cannot believe, she’s getting so big!

**Be looking for a future post on her incredibly, adorable 1 year princess birthday invitations! Oh my! So Cute!**

I must confess that I am a bit obsessed with her. Every time I see her I want to SQUEEZE HER! and PINCH HER CHEEKS! and EAT HER ALL UP!!! (I don’t sound psychotic at all, do I? Good. Thanks. Glad that’s decided.)

So, as you all know, my husband is just a wee bit obsessed with this new phenomenon they call, “Rock Band”.

Just a little,… you know, not that much, just enough to say that he “practices” his drum playing skills every night, sweats like a banshee when he plays (What is a banshee? Does anyone know why we say that?), and gets down on his knees, begging and pleading and asking me to “sing just one song!! And then after the “one song” has finished, “just a couple more!!” and then after a couple more, “just a ten song set list!”. But, I love him and so I do it,… most of the time, that is. Except when I’m tired and can’t take it any longer. Then I just go hide away in our bedroom and write blog posts.

But, as you can see, I’ve been busy playing Rock Band, therefore I haven’t been writing as many regular posts. Boo hoo…this endless cycle!

But, back to sweet Karis, daughter of my sweet friend.

J is also a teeny, weeny bit obsessed with Karis. He loves her, but not as much as I do. No, no, no… no he doesn’t! Although he may argue that,.. he loves her a lot. Enough to beg me to make a baby as cute as her, which I’m afraid may not be possible. She’s pretty stinkin’ cute, is all I’m sayin’.

So, the other night we had her mommy and daddy over for some homemade pizzas on the grill (sorry no pictures of the food this time!) and some Rock Band playing.

J thought he’d teach little, cutie Karis how to play the drums.


See Karis watching intently, learning how to read the different colored notes as they glide across the screen? I think I see her even beginning to hit a beat with those elite, Rock Band drumsticks.


“Hey Mom, I think his pitch is a little off.” -Karis


“Why is his right eyeball so incredibly black?” -Karis wonders,… because Lydia doesn’t really know how to properly use Photoshop yet,….that’s why.


“So Karis, that’s how you play Rock Band.” -James “Wow James! I think I’m ready to start playing on the real drums!”-Karis

So as I go, I will leave you with her favorite toy,…the pink, XBox controller….
