Dancing Queen

Next weekend, we're going to the beach. I can hardly wait.

This past weekend, we had a party for my aunt and uncle- they've been married 50 years! (I'm getting old!) The boys had a lot of fun. There was a big disco ball, throwing light all over the walls. Andy was overwhelmed. Joey was in heaven.

Going to a family event in my family can be something of an adventure. You can tell my family- they are the ones who all look alike. If you yell "Bud" or "Elmer", most of the men in the room will turn their heads. I am often teh tallest person there, because my brother doesn't go anymore. The ones that don't look like me or my cousins, I definitely don't know. The ones that do, I know about half of them.

The boys decided that "dancing" was the best part (besides the cake). This involved each boy taking Mommy's hand and using her as a pivot to spin with teh pretty dancing lights. Mommy ended up very, very dizzy.I didn't get to really talk to anyone; every attempt was thwarted by a small child trying to either get me to "dance" or hide under my shirt.

And so it goes.

Jack does that shirt thing to me all the time. It drives me totally crazy. Now that I think about it, Sam does it too.
