a Rock Band night

Yes, it's a non-cupcake post!

I'm not sure who enjoys this game more, my kids or my husband (who really had an idiot moment the other night, but more on that in a minute). None of us can sing all that great, but darn it, we have fun!

Dave decided (without my ok - I was completely against this from the moment he brought it up) to get the Stage Kit that goes with Rock Band - the light show and fog machine. Well, the dork managed to fog up the whole downstairs AND set the smoke alarm off the other night. I laugh now, but at the time I wasn't too happy to not be able to see through my living room at all.

Here are a few pictures from last night when the kids were really getting into the game.

I'm pretty sure this was during "Don't Stop Believing".

Cupcakes and catch-up

Well, we're back to school and work now. So far so good on both fronts.

We really didn't do much this summer that wasn't around town, other than drive to the White Turkey (which was delicious, as always!).


We went downtown and watched the Frisbee dogs during Celebrate Erie and watched Abbey Road (which I think I enjoyed more than the kids did).

Celebrate Erie

We caught the last buck night Seawolves game of the summer (well, a few innings anyway). The kids got free tickets we turned in earlier in the summer and I'm glad they were free because we ended up sitting next to a real jerk - who yelled at me for sitting in the seats that were on our tickets and then practically sat in my lap the whole time we were there. If he stayed there any longer I would have had to start fishing dollar bills out of my pockets, LOL!

Here are the PB&J cupcakes that I blogged about in my last post. These have quickly become a favorite to order!

...and here are the latest cupcakes I've done, for a picnic at my sister-in-law's house. Pink lemonade, s'mores and cinnamon toast mini's.
