Mama Mia Plus 8 Boys and 2 Girls

Alex was sick for several days last week and by Friday he was a little stir crazy. Poor kid! Friday afternoon hubby asked if I would like to get Alex out of the house and catch a movie. I checked with Alex and he said yes he felt well enough to go but he also wanted to go out to eat.

Decision made we were off to the theater to pick a show since I am lame and couldn't pull the dumb thing up on the Internet. I am sure that it was the computers fault and not mine! We decided to see Mama Mia. I am a sucker for musicals and both Alex and hubby thought it would be a great idea. Yea, I win!! We had about 90 minutes before the show so off we went to get some food.

We stopped at a cute little Italian Restaurant right by the theater. Alex and I ordered 4 Cheese Ravioli and hubby had Fish and Chips. (I didn't understand this choice but I had a taste and it was delish!!)

The waitress brought our food and held out a plate and said, "Ravioli?" Hubby said, "4 Cheese Ravioli?" And I grabbed it from her hands. (I was hungry!) She set Alex's down in front of him and he says, "How come there are five?" I laughed and told him it was four cheese meaning four different cheese and not four the count of four. And some people say the teenage brain is still forming...go figure. Just eat Al and don't analyze the food!

So we were off to see the movie. I fell in love with it at the first song, and the second and the third. I loved this movie!!! Of course I was a teenager in the 70's and loved ABBA then loved the A-Teens with my daughter. The only kind of creepy part was Pierce Bronson singing and wearing spandex. When this comes out on video I will be the first in line to buy it, I loved it that much!

Mama Mia, here I go again. My, my how can I resist you?

Really how can anyone resist this??

Saturday we got invited to a BBQ at hubby's oldest daughters with her family.

What fun!!

We sat around and talk and ate and ate and finally took pictures.

Here is the latest addition. Little Emelia. Isn't she too cute for words? She has cheeks that are just begging to be pinched or kissed. I think she likes the kissing better than the pinching.

And here is the most recent little boy, Zander. He is so darling. All smiles!

Here is the rest of the family. The eldest grandchild Jason, his wife Angie and their 5 boys!

And here is Misty, her hubby Matt with Madison, Thomas and baby Emelia. (Sorry, Misty, if I spelled that wrong.)

And here is the baby of the family, Amber with her hubby Doug and boys Cameron and Weston.

And finally here is my baby trying to not have his picture taken. What a brat!

We had a great time and I love watching all those little boys play and Madison in there to trying to instill some order.

This is good...on Sunday we went to my (FAVORITE) brother Jack's house to pick up a belated birthday present for Alex from my mom. I think she doesn't know for sure how old he is because she had bought him a blinking light shirt from Cars. Isn't he so cute here wearing it? My sweet sister in law Kristen made the comment that it was very nice of Grandma to remember his birthday. I was just laughing! I need to be more like Kristen! My nephew's, Nick and Cody have birthdays coming up. They better be ready for their blinky shirts too!

I'm new to your blog.
In the 70's I was a regular dancer on American Bandstand. One of the featured guest was ABBA. I was so excited to find the (youtube) video of their performance and even more excited to see myself sitting in the stand with Dick Clark. I was going to put it on my blog, but it was pulled from youtube! Fortunately I was able to email it to a few friends and family members before it disappeared.
Have a *Sweet* Day!
