Do you know what a Zhu-Zhu Pet is? It is a small battery powered furry hamster. They were all the rage for Christmas a couple of years back.
I don't know what to say. Where do they come up with this stuff? I think they used paint, hot glue and plastic knives and fork points for the blades and spikes.
I've thought of signing the kids up for art lessons, but really... it doesn't seem to me that anyone in this house is lacking creativity or the ability to express themselves. At times I've felt that I haven't supplied them with the best, highest quality art supplies and that perhaps has somehow hampered them.
I believe I can set my mind at ease on that point.
They are scavengers. They will use anything they can find and use it in ways I couldn't have imagined.
In ways that probably shouldn't be imagined.
Now for another, more disciplined form of art.
At least it was a cute dress and they didn't perform back to back. And we don't really care about that kind of thing anyway, so no big deal. Would you believe that these two are the same age?
I accompanied Bethany as she played Viva La Vida. The video isn't the best (sorry) and we didn't catch the very beginning, but it's a fun song and we played quite well, if I do say so myself. The video will rotate the right way part way through--don't get motion sick.
We worked really hard on this song together for several months and it was so rewarding to be able to perform it as well as we have practiced.
