Happy Birthday to You, Emmie!

Em’s b-day isn’t until next week but we’re going to be out-of-town on her actual birthday, so we had her party today.  Admittedly the party is more for the grown ups than the birthday girl at this point.  She’s two.  She won’t remember it.  But I always love an excuse to have a get together! 

So…we got together, had some yummy barbeque and stew and a delicious watermelon cake with ice cream!  And everyone was able to marvel at my amazing crafting skills which lead to, if I do say so myself, adorable watermelon clothing.

So…without futher ado, pictures:

Mamma Mia! Marvelous!!!

Earlier in the week my best friends from out-of-town came to visit.  They’d seen the new Mamma Mia! movie without me!  (How dare they?!?)  But promised me that they’d go see it again.  So…we trekked over to the theater, and I smiled for a solid 2 hours.  Who knew that Pierce Brosnan could sing??  Sing well, actually.  And Meryl Streep…I was amazed! Oh!  And Amanda Seyfried was so adorable I just wanted to pinch her cheeks!

Now…if you’re not musically inclined and if you don’t like a dash of silliness in your movies, you’re probably going to hate it.  But for me and mi amigas it was perfect!  We’ve now decided that we need a theme song!

But if I can’t have a theme song, I’ll settle for the soundtrack.  It’s ABBA…how could you not like it??  My kids have fallen in love with “Dancing Queen“.  I fell in love with a song ABBA recorded years ago, but I’d never heard: “Slipping Through My Fingers“.

Lego Frame

I think my brother has more fun with the Lego’s than my kids do.  Check out this “frame” he made:
