He killed it in a good way.

Yesterday while Peter was taking his guitar lesson, Sarah and I went to Walgreens.  Apparently she and her friend Cheyanne are both going to be cats for Halloween.  Cheyanne told Sarah that she saw some vampire fangs in Walgreens that would make great spooky cat teeth. 

We got back from Walgreens just as the guitar lesson was ending.  When Zach came out, he asked if I could hear what they were playing.  I told him we had just walked in the door and didn't hear anything other than one of the piano students banging around in another room.

"I taught him how to play the beginning of the Harry Potter theme song and he KILLED IT!  He just KILLED IT!  I couldn't believe how awesome he did!"  was Zach's excited reply.

It took Peter a moment to gather up his guitar and his notebook but when he finally came out of the room, he was grinning from ear to ear.  And in the car, he went on and on about how Zach told him he couldn't believe he was able to play the song so well so quickly. 

When we got home, Peter went straight up to his room and practiced the song and then he practiced it again before bed and was practicing yet again this morning before school. 

Not to be outdone, Sarah practiced  piano before school this morning as well. 

Where are my real children?  Who has them?  Who are these little people they have been replaced with?  (I'm sure my real kids will be back this afternoon just in time for a homework battle but until then, I'm going to cherish the fond memory I have of them practicing their instruments before school without being reminded.)

And in case you are wondering, we got the $5 vampire teeth but they aren't one piece of cheap plastic.  Instead, they are two pieces of cheap plastic. Each piece fits over the first two teeth on each side of the mouth.  Sarah doesn't have enough teeth to wear these as she currently looks like a beaver. 

I wanted to leave you with a picture of Sarah's toothless smile but I don't have a recent close-up because by the time your kid has lost 8 teeth, you stop taking pictures of the new grin.  At least I do anyway. 

So I'll leave you with this shot.  It's the best I can do.  (And there's a rainbow in the background but it's all blurry.  I was trying to get a shot of just the rainbow but some little beaver-toothed cutey just can't stand the thought of a camera being around and her own little self not being in the photo kept jumping into the shot.)



Please note the scarf made out of a t-shirt that is not only inside out but also choking her because it's so tiny.  I'm sure I would have no problem marketing those bad boys.

First of all, your picture is awesome! It may be a blurry background, but that's b/c it focused in on your cute girl!

Second, you need to make a video of Peter "killing it" because I would love to hear the song. I know the theme song, and can't picture it on a guitar....
