The Band.

Second post for today.. I wanted to tell you about:

The Band.

For those that read my blog or know me, know that I love Rock Band. It's a great family/friends game and so much fun! We're totally loving the new Rock Band Two even more.. lots of fun new song and there is a "no fail" mode so now even Carson and Hayden can join in the fun (mostly playing drums) or we can laugh like crazy while attempting the unbeatable songs.

Here are some shots from last night.
(yes, Drew is wearing dirty work clothes)

Danno (Ok, it's Dan.. be mostly Danno)

Marci & Lock

All of them (none of me- the Guitar Hero).

I was going to write comments on all of us but decided it was getting too lengthy (imagine that: Me, rambling!).

I'll just say that we all fight over 'More than a Feeling' and we can all play a mean Cowbell!!

Now I'll ramble. Last night was our final "performance" for the next little while. sniff, sniff Marci is going to AFRICA for six weeks to take care of Chimps (very cool). I can't believe she's going to be gone for so long!! Totally going to miss her. And Danno is going to be out of commission. He was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer last week and will be having two different surgeries to have it removed.

I've thought about doing posts about his diagnosis but haven't.. how do you write about that? He's the exact same person he was prior to last week.. he feels the same.. looks the same (well, kind of with his twin on his neck..). We all love him just as much now as we did back then. I cried when I first found out and I still feel sick (yet optimistic) when I think about it (which is often). Danno is a huge part of our family. He hangs out here all the time after going out to dinner.. he attends all of our birthdays, most holidays.. plus he's an awesome friend (and my step-brother). My kids adore their Uncle Danno. We even lived with him for a couple of years! And of course he's a Band Member!! lol

It is what it is. I'm glad that we have been able to find the humor in everything. At our Good Luck party earlier this week (you know, good luck to Marci's traveling and good luck to Dan's surgery) at Outback(thank you Joyce for watching the kids!!) we laughed, hard, for over 2 hours while we ate.. and probably caused a couple of tables to leave early. Oops. hehehe Ahhh, good times.

Danno's Surgeons are really looking into what is best for him though and I'm very confidant that he will soon be cancer free.


  1. I am so glad you have some good friends that you can laugh with. Laughing is the best, no really I mean that. I hope Dan has a speedy recovery

  2. I am so jealous. I need to come to your house and play rock band. I hope all went well with dans surgery. please let me know if you need anything.
