Cups 2.0

Because the house wasn't quite loud enough - what with Grandma and Grandpa and me and my sister and both of our husbands and all of our children and an oddly noisy cat - we threw into the mix a few hours (spread out over the course of a week or so) spent practicing various versions of Pitch Perfect's "Cups".

Clearly a few more hours of practice will be necessary if we're going to take this show on the road.

As I'm sure you noticed, we're not very good. Despite practicing for days, neither Sara nor I could master singing and performing the cup routine at the same time. Despite practicing for days, Will could never quite keep the beat on his own. And despite practicing for days, Hallie and Lily bailed the moment we actually wanted to see their choreographed dance.

I wish I'd videoed of all of our practice sessions; throughout the week our renditions included piano (Tom), guitar (Grandpa), bongo drums (Will), choreography (Hallie and Lily), and cups of all shapes and sizes. I'm grateful I caught this one, however - a little impromptu jam by these two cuties, who, if you'll allow me to brag for a moment, are pretty darn good at this duet. At least for a six-year-old and a four-year-old.

Brings me back to their rendition of last summer's #1 hit, "Call Me, Maybe".
