Singing Stars

We had a fun time yesterday, decided kind of last minute to have a BBQ picnic with Da'Gorgeouses in our back yard, and they really enjoyed that. They took a late nap (due to the last minute outdoor picnic) and then we dropped them off with Grammy and Welo for a couple of hours while DrillSgt. and I went to catch a movie. We watched the matinee showing of "Lakeview Terrace" with Samuel L. Jackson, and we both really liked it. He does such a good job at being such a creepy, weird kind of super intense psycho guy. Our date was really fun, just took it easy and played it by ear it included headed dinner at Taco Bell and stopping by to finally check out our newly opened CVS before heading over to pick up Da'Gorgeouses.

Much to our surprise when we arrived to pick up Da'Gorgeouses we discovered that my parents were having a party (well, it always seems to turn into a party whenever my uncles and aunts all get together). They had the guitar out and were singing (as is the usual during family gatherings). It was so nice to see everyone and watch Da'Gorgeouses interact. They were right smack in the middle of it all, sitting on laps, singing along, standing up and dancing and even bowing for the crowd's applause. Even Pistol who is generally a little more shy and cautious wanted to be the center of attention. She sat on Tia Stela's lap, sang the ABC's, Old McDonald, Down by the Bay, and even a few of the Princess tunes! She got up, was shaking her booty every which way to the music and was the first to take a bow after the applause. Of course, needless to say they were SOOOO ready for bed as soon as we got home.
