Boom Shaka Laka Laka

This past weekend Nick, Deidra, and Marcus came over from Spokane for a visit.  I will post pictures about our weekend later but I just had to share these of Elle enjoying her first Christmas presents!  Nick, Deidra, and Marcus brought Elle a piano and boom box.  Elle is hilarious with the piano instead of using her hands to play she rolls over and uses her feet to pound on the keys.  The boom box,  I know I am a child of the 80s!  It plays the melody of "Rockstar" by Smashmouth and  "1,2,3" by Jackson 5 to name a few.  Elle is quite intrigued by the songs as well as Mommy's singing.

Just rockin' out during tummy time!

Elle is such a lucky little girl!  Holly hooked her up with a ginormous cow and pajamas!  As you can tell the cow was a hit!

Then she began attacking the helpless cow.  We had to call her off and I did feed her promptly guess, she is going to be a meat eater...

I am super obsessed with stripes right now!! Don't you just want to break into David Bowie's "Magic Dance" song?  Colby finds this super creepy but I loved the movie Labyrinth!! I do promise not to throw her up in the air like the movie...

You remind me of the baby

What baby? baby with the power
What power? power of voodoo
Who do? you do
Do what? remind me of the baby

I saw my baby, crying hard as babe could cry
What could I do
My baby's love had gone
And left my baby blue
Nobody knew
What kind of magic spell to use
Slime and snails
Or puppy dogs' tails
Thunder or lightning
Then baby said
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Dance magic, dance (dance magic, dance)
Put that baby spell on me
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Jump magic, jump (jump magic, jump)
Put that magic jump on me
Slap that baby, make him free  (funny line right?  Amy caught it but I have never heard it)
