Overrun by Minions

My husband comes from a very talented family. For our reunion this summer they are asking every family to prepare a musical number, from an actual musical. And though Frozen is BANNED (for reasons of saturation, not for reasons addressed in my last post), I think there will still be plenty of little girl love to go around.

In my house? Not so much.

So last night we all made one of these:

We used felt and markers. And glue, because, you know, not a lot of sewing going on around here. And yes, they are just as easy as they look, and with tee-shirts 3/$9 at JoAnn's this week, cheap too. 

We are going to sing the Minion version of YMCA. One of the kids will sing the lead (does anybody know where I can pick up a kid's sized headdress??) and the rest of us will do back up. With actions. The chorus we will all pitch in singing "BA-NAN-NAN-NA" for YMCA. Before the whole thing gets too annoying (so, yeah, like a minute), the youngest (aka Minion Dave) will shoot said lead singer (Minion Carl) with a dart gun. The whole number will dissolve into a minion fight and we will all live happily ever after.

Fiddler on the Roof, it ain't.
