If it's too cold to go outside ...

Last night was cold. Frigid. And since there was snow Matthew wanted to play outside.
So, I decided to entertain Matt with my incredible skills.
So ...

I became a one-woman rollerblading band. In addition to playing guitar I also played the drums.

And I also mastered the marraccas.

All the while
my husband took pictures, and matt played and sang along. We sang songs like Jingle Bells and Happy Birthday and had a whole lot of fun. Of course, my rollerblading skills are not the best. But, it would turn out, they are far superior to the skating skills that I tried to master on the weekend.
I was so inspired by this that I did several laps of the basement screaming "wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee"!!!!
You think I'm kidding. But, I'm not. Matt chased me screaming the same thing while Mike finally retreated scared that I was less mature than our two year old.
See ... fun! I recommend it. And then I went to the gym and ran (3 and 1's for those of you who care about such things)
And, what did Matt think of my performance??? His face says it all.

Stay out of the cold everyone!!!!

I think you're on the leading edge of a whole new fashion trend with the pink guitar and rollerblades...

You are hilarious, make me laugh out loud! We actually did similar entertainment at our house tonight, Mommy was doing the entertaining. Jeff wanted to post about it, we'll see if he takes the risk...I was busting out the dance moves, I'll tell ya!

I don't know if I was more afraid of the fact that Matty was MORE sedate than his mother, or if I was afraid that I'd be driving someone to the hospital in the freezing rain!
