We Rock


On Friday we went over to our good friends, the Dominguez's, for dinner and to try out Sandra's birthday present--Guitar Hero. We thought it was a lot of fun, and if we had a game system to play it on, I would be thinking about asking for it for Christmas, but I guess I'll have to ask Santa for something more practical. (Are we the only people in America without a Wii? It seems like it.)

The kids enjoyed playing it on the Beginner level where all you have to do is "strum" at the right time. Keith and I started out on the Easy level where there are three buttons you have to push in addition to strumming. By the end of the night I got brave and moved to the Medium level where you have to push four buttons. I wasn't that good, but had fun trying. Maybe all those years of playing the viola helped me out!

We had shredded beef tacos for dinner, which is my favorite thing to eat at their house. They are seriously so good, and lots better than when I make them, possibly in part because Sandra fries her own tortilla shells. Thanks so much for inviting us over!

We don't have a wii. Just barely got a Playstation2, and that was given to us! Did the Dominguez' rearrange their furniture again?!!
Anyways, looks like fun!

You're not the only ones. We barely have a plug & play Pac Man. And that's Erin's!

You made me drool a little thinking about yummy tacos.

I can't actually say it looks like fun because you all look kind of dazed and almost bored! I know it is because you are concentrating on the screen, but it looks kind of silly. (Not like you would picture someone having fun playing a guitar) And we don't have a Wii either, and probably don't even want one...........

We are hoping that Santa will bring us a Wii this year. It seemed like WE were the only ones that didn't have one! Even Shane's mom just got one!

You look like you are concentrating awfully hard. LOL. We got a Wii not too long ago. We don't have Guitar Hero, but we love playing Mario Kart. :)

I was thinking you two looked serious enough to be real twangers sitting there.

(Apparently we've been part of America for a while now, we've not climbed aboard the bandwagon yet)
