This is what they really look like while they play. (I almost made us fail the song because I stopped playing my guitar to take the picture.)
We put three towels under the bass drum pedal because we live in a townhouse so we share both walls and we didn't want the neighbors too mad at us.
This is Sam saying goodnight to his fans after his last song. It was past his bed time. The really sad part is we woke him up an hour later to go to Chili's with us. Thanks again to Uncle Pete who bought us an appetizer to share. I just know we are going to be voted Parents of the Year.
Next, we had a visit last week from one of our favorite friends, Emmy. She came at 7:30 in the morning so Sam had about an hour and half to play with her before he had to go to school. They got right down to the business of being pirates.Doesn't she have the best pirate face. What a cutie.
One more thing and the random post will end. Two weeks ago I got my hands on the best Cinnamon roll recipe ever, thanks to my friend Heather (who is perfect - no kidding). So another friend and I decide to try it out. They were fabulous. I ate four of them in one day. Gross, I know but holy shmoly they were schrumdilescent. My mom had one, ask her, she'll tell you. So this week I wanted to recreate the memory. The dough didn't rise. I was baffled. They were perfect last time. I went for it anyway and started to cry - literally - as I tried to roll them and the bottom of the dough stuck to the counter. Yes, I actually threw a little fit all by myself in the kitchen. This is how they turned out.
Can you tell that they aren't even half as tall as the pan?
So sad. But as you can see we totally ate some anyway. Not that good. But I realized that I left out the tsp. of sugar at the very beginning of the recipe when the yeast gets activated. It's amazing what one little teaspoon can do. I tried again last Sunday and once again, they were superb. I have no proof though because they were gone before I thought to take a picture. Big surprise.
