Haley and Chloe came home from Tennesse yesterday! YAY!!! Not for good though, just for a break. We have them for 10 whole days. They told all of their friends that when they got home they were just going to hang out at home, sit on the couch, and do a lot of nothing so if they wanted to see them, they would have to come to our house to see them.
Here are all of my chicklets ... sitting on the couch ... which lasted all of about 4 hours and then those girls were OFF! (McCall and I were NOT happy about that. We liked the first plan better.)
One of the things we were excited to show them (Elliott in particular) was the dance game on XBOX Kinect. My kids had so much fun with Dance Dance Revolution when it first came out with Nintendo, we knew Haley and Chloe would love it. (Sidenote: I am one of those people who thinks that technology really should have just stopped already. Like cell phones are great - but do we really need the internet on our cell phones now? That kind of stuff.)
HAVE YOU SEEN XBOX KINECT and what you can do with that? Their dance game makes Dance Dance Revolution seem slightly archaic. I heard that "you are the controller" but I really didn't pay much attention until yesterday. I don't even know how to explain it. It's one of those things that you have to see to believe. You just wave your hand ... and your choices of songs and levels and characters are unbelievable.
The kids talked me into trying a dance. Oh boy. They picked the song for me ... something like "Sexy Mama" and I picked the level ... EASY.
"Mom! You did pretty good."
My points were somewhere just over 184,000. It said my correctness level (or something like that) was around 59%. That isn't too good if you compare it with Elliott's correctness level of 96% and his points being over 1,000,000. A MILLION??? On the hardest level???
I added another goal for 2011 though:
Master a dance on XBOX Kinect on the hardest level.
(Oh ... and lose fifteen pounds!)
